provenance61 Posted September 1, 2017 Share Posted September 1, 2017 I'm in NJ and having difficulty interpreting our graduation requirements. When I was in school (many years ago and in another state) requirements were "1 year of", "4 years of", etc. \ But our state requirements include: 20 credits (including English I-IV) At least 3.75 credits per year in physical education, health & safety during each year of enrollment, distributed as 150 minutes per week 15 credits of math (including Algebra 1, Geometry) 15 credits of science 15 credits of social studies (including Modern World History/geography, U.S. History I & II) 5 credits of world languages 5 credits of 21st century life & careers 2.5 credits of financial, economic and entrepreneurial literacy 5 credits visual and performing arts 15 credits of electives for total of 120 credits So...could someone help me please translate this into years of study? I mean, it seemed clear at first with 20 credits of English, divided by 4 years, 5 credit hours for each year. Math too. But then 5 credits of foreign languages? How would you divide that into years? Etc. Is this just set up for a public school system which has to calculate how many times a week a class would meet? How do you do this as a homeschooler? Thank you for any help here!
