Math

MATH 6
The sixth grade mathematics curriculum strives to increase students’ proficiency
in basic computations and their ability to identify real-life applications of mathematical
principles. Students continue to refine mathematical skills and to develop strategies for
solving various types of math problems. Sixth grade mathematics instruction also
provides an opportunity for students to enhance their technology skills through the
continued use of calculators and computers.

ADVANCED MATH 6
The Advanced Math 6 curriculum provides students with a review of operations
using whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percents. Students develop an in-depth
knowledge of equations, inequalities, areas and volumes, integers, graphs, and statistics
and probability. Advanced Math 6 students continue to identify real-life applications for
mathematical principles and to develop technology skills by using calculators and
computers.

MATH 7
The seventh grade mathematics curriculum extends students’ knowledge of
mathematical concepts and skills learned in previous grades and emphasizes skills used
to solve problems involving consumer applications and proportional reasoning. Students
learn to use data analysis to make inferences and predictions. Students also continue to
identify real-life applications for mathematical principles and to develop technology skills
by using calculators and computers.

PRE-ALGEBRA
The Pre-Algebra curriculum prepares students for high school algebra courses. In
addition to extending their knowledge of mathematical concepts and skills learned in
previous grades, students develop an in-depth knowledge of skills and concepts related
to integers, operations with rational numbers, percentages, graphing, equations,
inequalities, and geometry. Students also continue to identify real-life applications for
mathematical principles and to develop technology skills by using calculators and
computers.

ALGEBRA I
Offered to seventh and eighth grade students who demonstrate advanced
mathematical abilities, Algebra I teaches students to use algebra as a tool for
representing and solving a variety of practical problems. Students use tables and graphs
to interpret algebraic expressions, equations, and inequalities and to analyze functions.
Students’ technology skills are refined through the use of calculators, computers,
spreadsheets, and graphing utilities.

PRE-AP GEOMETRY
Offered to eighth grade students who demonstrate advanced mathematical
abilities. This course offers a more in-depth study of the content of Geometry with more
emphasis on abstract concepts and mathematical structure. Students will use graphing
calculators, computers, and other appropriate technology. Students taking this course
will take an end-of-course SOL test in Geometry. Students must pass both the course
and the SOL test to earn a verified credit.
