Course Description


This course serves as a bridge between the concepts learned in elementary school mathematics and the expectations of junior high and high school level mathematics. Computation skills with whole numbers, decimals, and fractions will be further developed and reinforced. Students will be expected to demonstrate competency in these computations without the aid of a calculator.Students will develop understanding of ratio, proportion, and percent, and apply these skills in real-life scenarios. They will integrate their study of graphs and data assessment with the topics they study in 6th grade science classes. Students will also apply measurement skills, conversion of units, and the principles of area and volume in the study of basic geometry. Algebra readiness skills are integrated throughout the course.


Designed to prepare students for high school level mathematics, this course increases proficiency in essential mathematics skills, exposes students to a wide variety of junior high math topics, and introduces students to pre-algebra and geometric concepts. Problem solving strategies and critical thinking skills will also be stressed in a cooperative learning environment. As warranted, remediation of basic computational skills will be included in the curriculum.

Math 8

Introducing students to the more abstract language of Algebra, this course will reinforce junior high math skills. Students are expected to be proficient in general computational mathematics. Besides learning equation solving and simplification of algebraic expressions, students will also work with geometric concepts. This course strives to foster improvement in problem-solvingskills, problem analysis, and independent thinking in preparation for high school mathematics.
