BHS Math Course Progression Notes

1. Students must earn 3 credits (6 semesters) of math credit regardless of where they begin.
2. Algebra 2 or Business Math 130 is the minimum level of completion for graduation.
3. Honors vs. Core: Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 are taught as blended courses with both honors and core students in the same class. Upper-level courses including Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Statistics are taught as stand-alone sections of core, honors or AP.

~ Teacher permission required. Most students choose to take AP Calc AB before AP Calc BC. ~

*Graduation Pathway Courses – BUS Math 130 is a “College in High School” course. Students who take and pass the course, regardless of whether they take it for Edmonds College credit, will fulfill their graduation pathway requirement for math. Earning a C+ or better or a 3 or better on the AP Exam in AP Stats, AP Calc AB, AP Calc BC or AP PreCalc also meets the graduation pathway math requirement.
