Math 6: Students work with rational numbers and delve into multiplicative thinking and proportional reasoning. Focus areas will be: 1) connecting ratio, rate, and percentage to whole numbers; 2) use of rational numbers & fractions; 3) interpreting expressions & equations; 4) understanding statistical thinking. Students will also work toward fluency with multi-digit division and decimal operations.
Math 7: Focus areas will be: 1) applying proportional relationships, including percentages; 2) analyzing rational number operations (positive & negative), expressions and linear equations; 3) solving with scale drawings and 2D/3D shapes (e.g. area, surface area, volume); 4) drawing inferences based on samples. Students also work to solve equations, (e.g. 7x + 2.5 =13 and ½(x+5) = 34).
Accelerated 7: Students will focus on the same concepts from Math 7, and will also formulate and reason with expressions & equations, and model relationships between two quantities (e.g. absences and math scores) with a linear equation, and solving systems of linear equations; and 6) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships.
Math 8: Focus areas will be 1) formulating & reasoning with expressions/equations, e.g. modeling relationships between two quantities with a linear equation, and solving systems of linear equations; 2) using functions to describe quantitative relationships; 3) analyzing 2D/3D figures using distance, angle, similarity & congruence. Students will also begin solving sets of equations with unknown variables.
Integrated 1: Analysis of linear functions (f(x) = mx + b), rates, contrasting linear functions with exponential functions, geometric relationships between linear function graphs (e.g., parallel & perpendicular lines), scatter plots, informal lines of best fit; and applying these ideas in the real world.
Integrated 2: Students will continue analyzing linear & exponential functions, and will work with; 1) Quadratic functions with varying growth patterns 2) Equations and expressions by translating various forms of a quadratic, ultimately leading to the quadratic formula; 3) simple trigonometric functions and conic sections, 4) introduce probability & models to support these concepts.
