Algebra Math Class

Algebra I Math Class for 8th Graders

Brother Rice High School is offering our Honors Algebra I math class for eighth grade students. This is an exciting program for students who excel in mathematics. The intent of this class is to begin students on the track to AP calculus as upperclassmen at Brother Rice.

We will be offering the placement test on Saturday, March 5, 2016, at 8:00 A.M. at Brother Rice High School. There is no fee to take this placement test. Test-takers should bring two pencils; a calculator may not be used. Please enter through the main entrance at 101st and Pulaski Road. The test will take about one and one-half hours. Following the test, light refreshments and a tour of the campus will be offered to you and your family.

The fee for the course will be $600(the same as last year)  and will include a Google Chromebook containing the online version of the text for this course along with a graphing calculator app. This means that the overall cost of the program will not change since a graphing calculator will not be required. The Chromebook will be the property of the student. If the student then comes to Brother Rice as a freshman, he will simply purchase the online version of his textbooks for his classes. The Chromebook will be used all four years. Insurance for the Chromebook is also available through Brother Rice.

Please contact Jo Anne Collins with any questions ( We hope to see you on Saturday, March 5, 2016.
