#### Elementary Math (before Pre-Algebra)

TPS offers Elementary Math (i.e, Math prior to Pre-Algebra) in two tracks: *Accelerated* and *Fundamentals*. Both tracks are thorough preparation for Pre-Algebra, the transitional course that bridges a student from concrete to abstract in preparation for Algebra and beyond.

TPS *Math Accelerated* is based on the *Singapore Math* curriculum, which introduces more advanced topics a little sooner. Our testing has shown that students who do well in TPS *Math Accelerated 6* are prepared to go straight to Algebra, effectively skipping a year of Math.

TPS *Math Fundamentals* is based on the *Math Mammoth* curriculum, highly regarded for its rigor and accessibility. It thoroughly prepares a student for the crucial transition of Pre-Algebra, which also uses the *Math Mammoth* curriculum.

**Accelerated:** More advanced topics in greater depth

Grade 4: Math Accelerated 4

Grade 5 (Summer): Math Accelerated 5 Prep Camp

Grade 5: Math Accelerated 5

Grade 6 (Summer): Math Accelerated 6 Prep Camp

Grade 6: Math Accelerated 6

Note: Strong Math Accelerated 6 students may skip Pre-Algebra and go straight to Algebra.

**Fundamentals:** Solid foundation for Pre-Algebra or Pre-Algebra (Honors)

Grade 4-5: Math Fundamentals 4 (coming 2019-20)

Grade 5-6: Math Fundamentals 5

Grade 6-7: Math Fundamentals 6

#### Pre-Algebra through college-level Math

Pre-Algebra is the transitional course that bridges a student from concrete to abstract in preparation for Algebra and beyond. TPS offers math from Pre-Algebra through Algebra 2 in two tracks: *Honors* and *Standard*.

TPS *Honors* and *Standard* tracks are both thorough preparation for college and career. Honors courses go deeper into some topics, assign some harder problems in homework and tests, and add a few more topics — all designed to better prepare a student for Calculus. Honors class lectures and discussions move a little faster and spend a little less time on review. Though Honors courses are ideal for preparing for Calculus, students who do well in the Standard courses will also be prepared to do well in Precalculus and Calculus. Students who start in one track can switch tracks later if needed, based on grades or changing academic goals.

TPS offers a wide range of options after *Algebra 2*, including *Precalculus* followed by *Calculus BC* or *Calculus AB*; Statistics; College Math (Quantitative Reasoning), all of which can be taken for college credit through TPS.
