    NOTE: Student placement in Mathematics courses will be based upon the high school leveling rubric!

    All mathematics courses at the Coatesville Area Intermediate High School are taught using research based pedagogical techniques. Every mathematics teacher has participated in comprehensive professional development to prepare them to use best practices in the classroom and foster a productive struggle to maximize student learning opportunities. These course environments offer more engaging, socially constructed, contextualized mathematics which can be used outside of the classroom.
