Algebra 1 is the most advanced of the three levels of math offered in the 8th grade at Pence Middle School. This is a single-blocked high school credit course. Students enrolled in this course will take the Algebra 1 End-of-Course SOL test in May which they must pass in order to verify the credit toward graduation requirements. An exam will be administered at the end of the year which will count toward 14% of the semester grade. Students who pass the SOL test will be allowed to exempt the final exam.
