The site will focus on the high school (and middle school) math progression.

What do students learn? Why do they learn it? Does it make sense? Does it succeed? What should they be learning? How should the be learning it.

These are big questions, high stake questions, and questions that are at some level unanswerable. Nevertheless, we send an entire generation through the high school math system every year so somehow, they have defacto answers.

I'll start slowly building a foundation of understanding. Here as a starting point is a listing of high school math learning progressions.

High school math arguably starts in middle school. Generally around 6th or 7th grade, the students started getting separated into different math tracks. The normal fast track:

6th grade - pre-algebra

7th grade - algebra I

8th grade - alegebra II

9th grade - geometry / triginometry

10th grade - pre calculus

11th grade - calculus

12th grade - statistics

The fastest track goes:

6th grade - pre-algebra

7th grade - algebra I

8th grade - alegebra II

9th grade - geometry / triginometry

10th grade - calculus

11th grade - calculus AP

12th grade - multivariate calculus

The normal track;

6th grade - 6th grade math

7th grade - pre algebra

8th grade - alegebra I

9th grade - alegebra II

10th grade - geometry / triginometry

11th grade - pre-calculus

12th grade - calculus or statistics

A slower track;

6th grade - 6th grade math

7th grade - 7th grade math

8th grade - pre algebra (foundations of algebra)

9th grade - alegebra I

10th grade - alegebra II

11th grade - geometry

12th grade - calculus or statistics
