• Mathematics


    The State of Idaho requires students to take 6 credits (3 years) of math, with 2 credits completed during their senior year, unless the student has already passed AP Calculus. The West Ada School District recommends 4 years of mathematics courses. 

    • Students will take the required Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) during the spring of their 10th grade year.  This assessment gauges a student’s understanding of concepts and problem solving skills directly aligning to the Idaho Content Standards for Mathematics.   
    • Idaho offers the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) to all public high school juniors, which is taken during the spring of their 11th grade year.  It is a graduation requirement for students to participate in a college entrance exam, such as the SAT.


    The table below outlines the main course sequences.  Note that in most pathways, students have options to choose from in the 11th and 12th grade.
