High School Mathematics Course Sequence
The required course sequence in
Texas Education Code §28.025(b-2) for advanced English and mathematics courses
was eliminated by Senate Bill 826. The change applies beginning with the
2017-2018 school year. This change does not impact the prerequisites listed for
high school mathematics courses. Prerequisites listed for courses are part of
the TEKS, which are located in the Texas Administrative Code (TAC).
Please note that there is a
distinction between prerequisites and course sequencing
requirements. A sequencing requirement is a requirement that a student cannot
enroll in a course until the student has successfully completed the previous
course(s). Prerequisites identify the knowledge and skills that a student must
have in order to be successful in a particular course. The State Board of
Education has adopted rules that clarify prerequisites in TAC §74.11(j) and
(k). Those rules establish circumstances under which a student can meet
prerequisites. These rules are available online at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter074/ch074b.html#74.11.
