BHS Math Placement Test - How to prepare?
I'm trying to get a sense of how difficult the math placement test is for Berkeley High and whether my child needs to prepare for it ahead of time. My 8th grader is currently at a BUSD middle school and gets consistently high grades in math, and near perfect scores on all state standardized tests and district assessments he has taken. But he is not doing any math outside of the school common core curriculum. Does the math placement test expect that students are already working on math above their current grade level, either outside of school or at a private school? Can a student pass who is just doing math through the public school system? And is there anyway my child can or should prepare for the test? What percentage of kids who take the test pass it? I am having a hard time getting firm answers to these questions from my child's current math teacher. Thank you.
