• # Accelerated Mathematics 6

This course is aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and is designed to develop an understanding of essential sixth and seventh grade mathematical concepts at an accelerated pace. Instructional time will focus on seven critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (3) further developing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (4) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; (5) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (6) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two-and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (7) developing understanding of statistical thinking and drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

• # MS Pre-Algebra

This course is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and is designed to develop an understanding of essential eighth grade concepts. Instructional time will focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; and (3) analyzing two-and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.
