Quantitative Reasoning With Advanced Math Topics (QRAT)


Quantitative Reasoning with Advanced Mathematical Topics (QRAT) was developed to better prepare college and career-bound high school seniors with the 21st Century skills necessary to meet the mathematical thinking and problem-solving expectations of higher education courses and workplace requirements.

QRAT Pre-requisites

A passing grade in Integrated Math III
or Intermediate Algebra II

QRAT Target Population

Intended for high school seniors who place into:

  • Level 3 "Standard Met" on SBAC/CAASP
  • Level 2 "Standard Nearly Met" on SBAC/CAASP

    Students who placed into Level 2 "Standard Nearly Met" may participate in the course with a counselor/math teacher recommendation.

Students who typically enroll in this course:

  • Are not ready to take an AP level math/QR course
  • May have originally been placed into pre-Calculus
  • Could move beyond a "just-go-by" status from IM III or Intermediate Algebra II and improve their preparation to succeed in college-level mathematics
  • Would prefer to take a course that looks and feels different and gives them credit, rather than retaking a course for no additional credit
  • May not have planned to take a senior year math course.
