7th & 8th Grade Mathematics Curriculum

 

 

7th Grade Mathematics

This course is based on the Common Core Mathematical Standards and will focus on developing students understanding of:

  • Ratios & Proportional Relationships - Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
  • The Number System - Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.
  • Expressions & Equations - Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
  • Geometry - Draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them.
  • Statistics & Probability - Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

 

 

8th Grade Mathematics

This course is based on the Common Core Mathematical Standards and will focus on developing students understanding of:

  • The Number System – Know that there are numbers that are not rational and approximate them by rational numbers.
  • Expressions & Equations – Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations and use that to solve linear and pairs of linear equations
  • Functions – Define, evaluate, and compare functions and use functions to model relationships between quantities.
  • Geometry – Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume of cylinders, cones and spheres. Understand and use the Pythagorean Theorem.
  • Statistics & Probability – Investigate patterns of bivariate data.
