I am entering 8th grade and I recently took a placement test. I am hoping to get into the 11th grade mathematics course (Algebra 2), but I am not sure whether or not I will qualify. The school that I will be attending has three advanced classes for 8th graders: (Intro to Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra2). Last year in 7th grade, I took Pre-Algebra, not Algebra 1. I am wondering what general topics are taught in Algebra 1 for the state of Pennsylvania so that I will be able to determine if I could possibly skip this course. Please let me know. Thank you!
Also, I had a little trouble with two out of nine of the Algebra 1 questions on the placement exam, so would this mean that I would not be qualified for Algebra 2? I have not yet received results to the exam.
