Transition to Quantitative Reasoning (TQR)


The Transition to Quantitative Reasoning (TQR) Course 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.

TQR Pre-requisites

  • Algebra I and Geometry or Integrated Math I and II with a passing grade
  • May have also taken a third year of math (e.g. transition course, 2-year course, etc.)

TQR 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 typically enroll in this course:

  • May not have planned to take a senior year math course.
  • May have originally been placed into Algebra II or IM III.
  • Could move beyond a "just-go-by" status from Algebra I and Geometry or IM I and II and improve their preparation to succeed in college-level mathematics.
