Grade 6

We build on the skills students have developed in elementary grades. Practice problems begin to look a lot like algebra. Geometry, probability, statistics, percentages and graphing are covered. Students will also be expected to apply their knowledge of math through complex word problems.

Curriculum Highlights

Topics students will explore include the following:

Decimals, including multiplication and division
Fractions, including multiplication and division
Ratios, proportions and percentages
Algebraic concepts, including variables, patterns, and equations
Geometry and measurement
Probability

Grade 7

Students expand their understanding and use of algebra by solving equations and inequalities with integers, decimals, fractions, and exponents, as well as explore geometric concepts such as the surface area of prisms and cylinders and the Pythagorean Theorem.

Curriculum Highlights

Topics students will explore include the following:

Algebraic expressions and integers
Solving one- and two-step equations and inequalities
Ratios, proportions, and percentages
Linear functions and graphing
Area and Volume
Right Triangles in Algebra

Grade 8

We dive deep into algebra. Increasingly complex functions, equations and inequalities are tackled, along with polynomials and factoring, and quadratic equations.

Curriculum Highlights

Solving and graphing systems of equations and inequalities
Rational numbers
Exponents and exponential functions
Polynomials and factoring
Quadratic equations and functions
Rational and Radical expressions
