Placement—Is this the right level?

Students should start at their individual level of mastery. While concepts are reviewed continuously throughout the Math-U-See Curriculum, it is important that previously presented concepts have prepared a solid foundation. Please read the information below and use the placement tools provided to determine which level best meets the needs of your student.

Your student may be ready forPre-Algebraif they can:

Easily add, subtract, multiply, and divide multiple-digit whole numbers

Proficiently add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions

Proficiently add, subtract, multiply, and divide mixed numbers

Proficiently add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimal numbers
