The Mathematics Department of Elder High School is pleased to offer an Honors Algebra 1 course to gifted mathematics students who will be in the 8th grade during the 2017-2018 academic year. This course may enable students to take both Advanced Placement Calculus AB and Advanced Placement BC during their upper class years at Elder High School. Students could also earn college credit for one full year of college calculus by passing the Advanced Placement Calculus exams that accompany the Advanced Placement Calculus courses. Upon successful completion of the course and an end-of-course Algebra 1 test, students will earn high school credit for Honors Algebra 1 if attending Elder.

Students will need to report to Elder HS for the first day of class on Tuesday, August 15th. Mr. Roush will pass out info, including a tentative schedule of 1st quarter class dates on the first day of class.
When arriving at Elder, the easiest route to class will be to pull through the main gate at the corner of Vincent & Regina Avenue, to the front of Elder HS (between the football field/field house and main building). As you pull in, you will want to drop off your student at the second door on the right (one before the Main entrance). Mr. Roush will be waiting out front by 6:45AM to help guide your son/daughter to class. Our first class will be held in Room 5 – and then we will move to Room 133 of the Schaeper Center in order to have access to a computer on a daily basis.
