    Middle School Math Courses

    • 7th Grade Math:  7th Grade Mathematics includes all of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) designated for 7th grade mathematics by the state of Texas. The primary focal points at Grade 7 are number operations; proportionality; expressions, equations and relationships; and measurement and data. The curriculum sets a solid foundation for success in 8th grade mathematics (Pre-Algebra).  Students enrolled in 7th Grade Math will take the 7th Grade STAAR test in May.  
    • Pre-Algebra: Pre-Algebra includes all of the TEKS designated for 8th grade mathematics by the state of Texas. It is intended for mature students whose schedule allows for a fast-paced course with a heavier workload.  The primary focal points at Grade 8 are proportionality; expressions, equations, relationships, and foundations of functions; and measurement and data. The curriculum sets a solid foundation for success in Algebra I.  If students are enrolled in this course during their 7th grade school year, they will need to maintain an 80 average in order to remain in the course.  Students enrolled in Pre-Algebra will take the 8th Grade STAAR test in March.  *According to Texas Administrative Code 74.11 (j), students must pass Pre-Algebra in order to enroll in Algebra I the following year.
    • PAP Algebra I: Pre-AP Algebra I is designed for students showing an advanced aptitude and superior math skills.  In addition to the strands listed for Algebra I, this PreAP course is designed to prepare students for entry into AP mathematic courses.  The course goes beyond Algebra I content with a wider range and greater depth of subject matter.  The content assessments require students to synthesize their learning and apply it on a much higher level.  Students will use a TI84 graphing calculator on a regular basis.  Students enrolled in PAP Algebra I will take the STAAR Algebra I End of Course Exam in May.  *According to Texas Administrative Code 74.11 (j), students must receive Pre-Algebra credit (or Carroll ISD’s 6th Grade Accelerated Math credit) in order to enroll in Algebra I.
    • PAP Geometry: Pre-AP Geometry is a rigorous course designed for students showing an advanced aptitude and superior math skills.  In addition to the strands listed for Geometry, this PreAP course is designed to prepare students for entry into AP mathematic courses.  The course goes beyond Geometry content with a wider range and greater depth of subject matter.  Emphasis is placed on critical thinking skills that require considerable mathematical insight.  It is intended for highly motivated, self-disciplined students who have very strong Algebra I skills. The content assessments require students to synthesize their learning and apply it on a much higher level.  Students will use a TI84 graphing calculator on a regular basis.  Students enrolled in Geometry will take the 8th Grade STAAR test in March.  *According to Texas Administrative Code 74.11 (j), students must receive Algebra I credit in order to enroll in Geometry.

    Middle School Math Placement Resources

     

    Middle School Math Placement Appeal & Removal Forms

    Are you newly enrolling a 7th or 8th Grader to Carroll ISD?
    Carroll ISD has various Pre-AP math courses (see Secondary Math Flow Chart) for CISD 7th and/or 8th graders who qualify .  Each math course requires a set of prerequisite skills for success. In order for newly enrolled CISD students to qualify for a PAP Middle School Math course, parents will need to provide the following documentation to the middle school campus for proper math placement.  Students coming from each school MUST bring the following:

    In-State Texas Public/Charter

    Out-of-State/Private Schools

    Out-of-Country

    Most recent STAAR Scores*



    Students wanting to test into a CISD PAP Math course will have the opportunity to take a Math Placement Test.


    (New student Math Placement Testing dates will be posted on the Student Services webpage).

    Please contact the campus counselor for math placement procedures.  

    In order to register for PAP Geometry in 8th grade, parents must provide documentation of High School Algebra 1 credit.  Documentation of HS Algebra 1 credit MUST be a:

    High School Transcript

     OR

     Letter from prior school district’s campus/central office stating that Algebra 1 was taken for High School

    *At this time, we understand that STAAR scores and other standardized test scores may not be available from Spring 2020.  Therefore, the academic records for all students enrolling in Carroll ISD will be evaluated on an individual basis to determine the most appropriate 2020-21 mathematics course.  If families wish to accelerate their students beyond what their academic records indicate, additional testing (Credit by Exam) may be required.

    **According to Texas Administrative Code 74.11 (j), students must have passed Pre-Algebra (8th grade math) in order to enroll in Algebra I the following year.

    Students not currently enrolled in Carroll ISD should inquire from their current district about possible Credit by Exam options.  Carroll ISD CANNOT administer a CBE to students not enrolled in CISD.   *Please note: Placement in a course will only occur if the credit is given to the campus before the beginning of a school year, regardless of when a CBE for acceleration is taken.
