Descriptions of Math Department Levels

Intensive Level one courses are courses designed for students who enjoy examining topics in mathematics more deeply and exploring non-routine, abstract and challenging math problems. Students are expected to analyze complex, multi-step problems with minimal repetition, readily apply concepts to new problems (even in testing situations) and consistently demonstrate mastery of previous topics and skills without re-teaching.

Level one courses are enriched courses, designed for students who are able to learn new concepts and analyze complex multi-step problems with limited repetition and guidance. Students are expected to apply concepts to new problems with some guidance from the teacher and consistently demonstrate proficiency with previous topics and skills with minimal review.

Level two courses are college preparatory courses, designed for students who are able to learn new concepts and reach an understanding of fundamental mathematical problems and relationships with repetition and guidance. Students are expected to learn new ideas and skills with guidance from the teacher and to demonstrate increasing competence with previous topics and skills as they continue to be practiced in class and on homework.

Level three and topics courses are general courses, designed for students who are able to learn new concepts with repetition and guidance from the teacher. Students are expected to apply concepts to new problems with considerable guidance from the teacher, to demonstrate increasing competence with previous topics and skills as they continue to be practiced in class and on homework, and to learn well from periods of direct instruction in combination with in-class guided practice.
