“Honors” and “High Honors” are the two titles to recognize students who have successfully moved onto advanced levels with respect to their corresponding school grades. The figure below is Afficient Math Honors Chart. The horizontal axis is the School Grade of the student, and the vertical axis represents the Subject the student is on at Afficient Math.
As students move into middle and high schools, they will most likely be placed either in the non-accelerated track or one of the accelerated tracks. The “Honors” track of Afficient Math is aligned with the Honors class of typical private and public schools. For example, 7th grade students will learn Algebra 1 and 8th grade students learn Geometry. The “High Honors” track is generally one subject level higher than the “Honors” track; which can be found as the most advanced math track in some academic-focused private and public schools. On the “High Honors” track, for example, 7th graders take Geometry and 8th grade students learn Algebra 2.
Afficient Math Honors Chart gives parents and students an idea on how high students’ math skills should be aimed at. As a student first starts Afficient Math, he/she typically starts with reviewing lower grade materials to build a solid foundation. He/she then moves up and passes the non-accelerated track. We would like to bring students pass the “Honors” and “High Honors” lines, and lead students to stay with the High Honors track to maintain academic excellence.
To encourage their high achievements, students of “Honors” status will receive 50% more tokens than regular students as they complete or exceed weekly assignments, and students of “High Honors” status will receive 100% more tokens than regular students.
An example of an individual student progress chart
(The student started Afficient Math when she was a 3rd grader in school. She began with review of Grade 2 of Afficient Math. As she completed Grade 3 in school, she had completed Grade 4 and part of Grade 5 of Afficient Math. She has become an Honors student.)
