The main function of Transitional Math class is to help students become college ready in math. This helps students to avoid taking remedial classes when going to college. Currently, to become college ready in math, students need to either earn a score of a 19 in math on the ACT or a 22 on the KYOTE.
The secondary function of Transitional Math is to help students learn some of the math that they will be more likely to use in their everyday lives, whether they go to college or not. For example, we do a budgeting project where students are alotted a certain amount of money and they have to create a functioning budget. Students also participate in assignments that deal with calculation of sale's tax, tipping at a restaurant, ect.
In this course, tests count as 70% of the grade and quizzes count as 30%. Homework assignments, flashbacks, and quizzes all fall under the category of quiz grades.
