Course: Math 5
Grade: 5th Grade
Math 5 allows students to build on their basic math skills while pushing them towards higher-order and critical thinking. Units such as multiplying and dividing decimals, graphing data and statistics, working algebraic expressions, and finding the perimeter, area, and volume of different shapes supplement daily skills such as place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Throughout the school year, fifth-grade students become more in tune with their number sense and mathematical confidence.
Course: Math 6
Grade: 6th Grade
Math 6 reinforces basic mathematical concepts and introduces skills that are essential for all students. Concepts, procedures, and vocabulary that students will need in order to be successful in upper-level algebra and geometry courses are introduced and continually practiced. Students begin with a general review of the four basic operations. They are introduced to exponents, geometric formulas, algebraic concepts, ratios, percentages, and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing signed numbers. 6th Grade Math students work extensively with fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, and data. Problem-solving strategies are also an integral part of the curriculum.
Course: Math 7
Grade: 7th Grade
Math 7 extends students’ understanding of numbers and computation to include integers and proportional reasoning. All concepts and skills are presented in the context of problem-solving that requires the use of reasoning and communication. Areas of focus include data analysis and probability; algebraic foundations such as equations and inequalities; functional relationships; arithmetic and geometric sequences; geometric precision, and measurement.
