jibaker103 Posted September 16, 2012 Share Posted September 16, 2012 My ds has struggled with upper level math so I decided to start MUS and since March he has completed Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, and is now half way through Zeta. What should I call this on the transcript? When we get to Algebra 1 for the 3rd time and Geometry for the 2nd time how do I explain this on the transcript?

Jann in TX Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 You could list the first group as 'General Math' then once he completes Algebra and Geometry list them. Also note that any course below Algebra 1 would not count towards high school credit... so it would be totally optional to put it on transcript. My oldest only completed 2 high school maths-- Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. She was accepted and eventually graduated from college (with HONORS!). If possible-- try to complete Algebra 2 over Geometry if it comes down to a choice.... if your student ever decides to go to college or community college the basic math classes will require Algebra 2 (to avoid remedial maths). I have had several former students go on to college after only completing (after multiple attempts) Algebra 1... they survived. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

EKS Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 I would call Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, and Zeta Prealgebra for the transcript. Because they are. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

jibaker103 Posted September 18, 2012 Author Share Posted September 18, 2012 Thank you both for the great information. I think I will list Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 A, B, C, and D, and Geometry A, B, and C on the transcript. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

SailorMom Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 I hadn't heard about anything below Algebra 1 not counting for high school credit.... Here at the PS - you have to take Algebra 1, but there are classes that come before it in the high school for those struggling with math. They have a general math and a pre-algebra class. The kids get credit towards graduation, but again - they eventually have to have algebra 1 on there (and maybe geometry or algebra 2). My poor mom never would have graduated high school. She barely passed pre-algebra in high school. Had to take that twice. She just wasn't good at math. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

I know that when I was in high school 9th grade was pre-algebra. I do not remember my sequence but graduated having gone through Algebra 3 (Trigonometry).
