Math for Grades 6-8

6th Grade

6th Grade (Advanced)

Mathematics 6 – Advanced includes a study of topics contained in both the regular sixth grade and seventh grade courses. Students will be expected to finish the 6th grade objectives and many of the 7th grade objectives by the end of this course. Sixth grade mathematics includes a study of number theory such as prime and composite numbers, factors, and multiples. It also will concentrate on data investigation by gathering, organizing and analyzing data and then making decisions based on that data. Additional work will include the study of rational numbers, the operations on rational numbers, measurement and probability. The seventh grade topics covered will include Similarity, scale factors, congruence and 3-dimensional measurement. The emphasis will be on problem solving and developing analytical thinking skills. Students will be solving advanced level problems.

7th Grade

7th Grade (Advanced)

7th Grade Advanced Math includes a study of topics contained in both regular seventh and eighth grade courses. Students will be expected to finish 7th and 8th grade objectives by the end of this course. Seventh grade mathematics includes study of introductory algebraic concepts such as variables, tables, graphs and symbols of representation. Similarity, scale factors, congruence and 3-dimensional measurement will be covered in the area of geometry. Additional work is done on positive and negative numbers, probability, rate, ratio, proportion and percent. The emphasis will be on problem solving and developing analytical thinking skills. Students will be solving advanced level problems. Eighth grade mathematics includes the study of linear relationships expressed in words, graphs, symbols, tables and solutions of linear equations. The Pythagorean Theorem, slope, area and irrational numbers will also be studied. Additional topics include exponential growth, quadratic growth and equivalent expressions. Transformations will be studied in the area of geometry.

8th Grade

8th Grade (Advanced) - Algebra 1

This course is designed for students who have exhibited superior mathematical ability and are ready to study high school level work. The content of this Algebra I course will include a study of the real numbers and their operations, the language of algebra, algebra with multiple variables, systems of two variables, linear equations and inequalities, equation of lines, ratio, proportion and variations, polynomials, rational expressions, absolute value, radicals, and quadratic relations. Students will also explore rational functions, if time allows. Emphasis will be on problem solving and graphing. This course will require extensive use of graphing calculator. Students will receive high school credit and high school grade points.

8th Grade (Honors)

Mathematics 8 – Honors is a course for students who are competent in basic skills but who are not functioning at the abstract level needed for success in Algebra I. This course includes a study of basic operations, problem-solving techniques, introductory geometry, probability and statistics, graphing, and introductory algebraic concepts. Students who satisfactorily complete this course should take Honors Algebra I.

8th Grade

Eighth grade mathematics includes the study of linear relationships expressed in words, graphs, symbols, tables and solutions of linear equations. The Pythagorean Theorem, slope, area and irrational numbers will also be studied. Additional topics include exponential growth, quadratic growth and equivalent expressions. Transformations will be studied in the area of geometry.
