  • Order of Operations
  • Combining Like Terms
  • Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying, Dividing positive and negative numbers
  • Solving equations in one variable

Step 3: Interview
Once the student passes the Math Placement test, an interview is scheduled to determine whether or not AR will be the best fit.
