Step 2: Math Placement Assessments
All applicants must take a math placement assessment. Students must submit an application before they can schedule a math testing date. Please call the AR Office at (707) 476-4203 to schedule your test date. Students will not be allowed to use a calculator and all work needs to be done on the assessment sheet. To place into Algebra 1 and to earn an interview, the following are some of the concepts that the students should be able to do:

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

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.
