MATH 6The 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 6The 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. TEACHERSC. MurrayK. CarvajalMATH 7The 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-ALGEBRAThe 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. TEACHERSMrs. HamletteMs. Moorman Mr. Reynolds ALGEBRA IOffered 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 GEOMETRYOffered 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. TEACHERSMrs. Dinwiddie |
