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 forAlgebra 1: Principles of Secondary Mathematicsif they can:

Proficiently add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers, fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals

Convert between a fraction, decimal, and percent

Solve one-step equations

Plot points on a number line and coordinate grid

Perform operations with integers

Write an algebraic expression to solve a word problem

The Math-U-See placement tool is designed to help ensure proper initial placement and will give you a clear indication if your student is ready forAlgebra 1: Principles of Secondary Mathematics.
