7th Grade Mathematics: This course focuses on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships;(2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) 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 (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

 

7th Grade Mathematics Honors: Same as 7th Grade Mathematics with additional depth and breadth on existing topics. District recommendation required.

 

8th Grade Mathematics: The purpose of Secondary Mathematics I is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships, by contrasting them with exponential phenomena, and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Students will use properties and theorems involving congruent figures to deepen and extend understanding of geometric knowledge from prior grades. The final unit in the course ties together the algebraic and geometric ideas studied.

Secondary Math I Honors: Same as Secondary Math I, but with the beginning components of Precalculus added. Students already in the Honors program may register for this class.
