9th-grade math: what to expect?

Hello, I'm an 8th grader about to enter high school, and I was wondering what math courses are typically taken in 9th grade? I've heard a couple different things from friends, so I'm curious about any general advice or recommendations. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's completely normal to be curious about the math courses you'll take in 9th grade. The exact course you'll be placed in largely depends on your school's curriculum and your math background in middle school.

Commonly, students begin with Algebra 1 in 9th grade, but some may start with Geometry if they've already completed Algebra 1 in middle school. On the other hand, students who excel in math or have completed advanced courses might start with Algebra 2 or an introductory pre-calculus class.

You'll also want to check with your high school for specifics on their math track, as some schools may offer different courses depending on your performance in previous years. Generally, it's best to consult with your future high school counselor or math department to figure out the best path for you to follow. Good luck in your math journey!
