In column D, please list a 1 or a 2
next to the appropriate row indicating, in which course your school
typical covers the content detailed in columns B and C: list a '1' for
Algebra I (typically 9th grade algebra) or a '2' for Algebra II
(typically taken in 11th grade). If really pressed for time, you can do
it for just the GENERAL TOPICS, but if you have time, doing it for the
MORE SPECIFIC TOPIC COMPONENTS would be helpful. List a '3' for content
not covered in either of these courses. 
Covered?
1 = alg I
2 = alg 2
3 = no 
For LLCC: Beg Alg (MAT 088 and 092)
includes #1  7; Inter Alg (MAT 094 and 096) includes # 8  12.
