Mathematics Department

All students are required to take three (3) mathematics credits for a Hollis Brookline High School diploma; one of these credits must be Algebra 1.

College-bound students should plan a sequence of courses through at least Algebra 2 to meet the entrance requirements of most colleges and universities. It is recommended that students have a grade of C or higher before moving to the next course.

The following chart shows the sequencing of mathematics courses at Hollis Brookline High School. Cross movement between levels is possible according to student performance and with teacher recommendation. Students will be advised by their current math teacher as to the next appropriate course in the sequence. Incoming ninth grade students may be given a math placement exam at the conclusion of eighth grade to ensure proper placement. Results of this test may change course placement.
