Curriculum for the Digital Generation
MIDDLE SCHOOL : MATHEMATICS
Utilizing an innovative math curriculum, students master concepts ranging from data analysis to algebra in an interactive format that is challenging, yet engaging, and exceeds the most demanding academic expectations.
In this course, students will build on previously learned concepts like adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.
In this course, students will build on previously learned concepts, like positive and negative integers and fractions, to learn about rational numbers and how to compare them.
In this course, students begin with adding and multiplying rational numbers by using number lines, rules, and properties.
Math 7B helps students level up their skills as a mathematician. The second half of seventh grade math starts by teaching different methods to simplify arithmetic operations, focusing on subtraction and division.
In the second part of the course, students begin working on compound events. They identify compound events and find their probabilities by using a formula, organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, or simulations. Students then continue with statistics and compare two data sets of random samples by using their center values and variability measures. From there, students make conclusions about the populations the data sets represent. As students near the end of the course, they apply their knowledge to geometry problems. They solve problems that involve area, surface area, volume, two- and three-dimensional objects, and cross sections.
By the end of the course, students should have a solid foundation of the math skills needed to be successful in seventh grade and beyond.
In this course, students begin with the fundamentals of algebra.
The next area of study is very large and very small numbers, where they will solve expressions involving powers of a common base, convert numbers to and from scientific notation, and perform operations on numbers in scientific notation. They will then move on to geometry, where they will perform rigid transformations on figures and prove congruence of figures through a series of rigid transformations.
In this course, students will build on and extend the knowledge they gained in Math 8A.
Next, students will extend their knowledge of linear relationships by identifying and comparing properties of lines and their equations. Then, students will learn how to solve systems of linear equations using graphs, substitution, and elimination. After that, they build upon their algebraic skills by applying them to statistics, where they analyze and interpret patterns in bivariate data. Finally, students will explore and analyze three-dimensional shapes including cylinders, cones, and spheres.
Pre-Algebra is designed to give students the opportunity to build the conceptual understanding and skills necessary to be successful in Algebra 1A and Algebra 1B.
