Mill Valley Middle School Math ProgressionThe Mill Valley School District has aligned its middle school math placement criteria with the California Common Core State Standards.
The math progression is as follows:
All incoming sixth grade students are placed in Math 6. This course covers the state standards for sixth grade math.
Seventh grade students are placed in one of two course options. Most students will take Math 7, the standard seventh grade math class. Some qualifying students will be eligible to take Math 7/8. This course covers all of seventh grade math AND half of eighth grade math.
Eighth grade students will take one of two courses. Most students will take Math 8, the standard eighth grade math class. Some qualifying students will be eligible to take Algebra 1. This course covers all of high school Algebra 1 AND the second half of eighth grade math.
