Algebra Readiness Test

Are You Ready to Start Algebra 1?

I know that in itself can be terrifying, but it's really not that bad. Actually, I've had students who haven't done well in math up through middle school and when they get to Algebra, they really start enjoying Math. It's a different kind of thinking and some students really enjoy it. So, give it a chance!

Below you will find the Algebra Readiness Test. The test is divided into sections according to skill. Print out the test and take the test without using a calculator. Do the best that you can!

Then use the answer key to check your answers. If you got more than one problem wrong in each section, then you will want to review that particular skill before school starts. I've included links to web pages that will help you review each skill.

If you get most of the problems correct, then you are ready to start Algebra 1.
