6th Mathematics

Course Title:
6th Grade Mathematics

Grade Level:
6

Course Duration:
Full Year

Course Description:
This course will focus on the sixth grade Common Core standards. Units will include Number System Fluency, Rate, Ratio and Proportional Reasoning, Algebra, and Geometry.

 

7th Mathematics

Course Title:
7th Grade Mathematics

Grade Level:
7

Course Duration:
Full Year

Course Description:
In 7th grade mathematics, we will be building on most of the concepts from 6th Grade, and also will be working on critical thinking skills through performance-based tasks, group work, discussions, writing, and projects in each topic. Students will be pushed to use problem-solving strategies and the Common Core Mathematical Practices daily. We believe ALL students can learn at high levels and we will do what we can to support them! The outline for the course is below. This may change according to student need.

1st Semester
Proportional Relationships
The Number System
Expressions & Equations Part I

2nd Semester
Expressions & Equations Part II
Geometry
Statistic & Probability
 

8th Mathematics

8th Grade Mathematics

Grade Level:
8

Course Duration:
Full Year

Course Description:
8th Grade math focuses on important concepts of algebra. Students will focus on three critical areas throughout the year:

  • Formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations
  • Grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships
  • Analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures. Students are encouraged to think critically about the purpose and use of mathematical concepts.
