Mathematics 6: This course covers the operations with whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. Study also includes exponents, ratios, proportions, basic geometry, estimation, data display, standard and metric measurement, and the use of variables.
Mathematics 6 Advanced: This course goes beyond the standard sixth grade course by including operations with integers. Students also work with negative exponents, solve several types of percent problems, and solve multi-step equations in one variable.
Mathematics 7: This course covers a variety of general math topics and is designed to reinforce and develop basic math skills. Some of the topics covered will include the following: basic statistics, number theory, algebraic reasoning, proportional reasoning, percentages, probability, and basic geometry. FCAT readiness is also integrated throughout this course.
Mathematics 7 Advanced: This course is primarily a Pre-Algebra course that is designed to prepare students for the high school level Honors Algebra in eighth grade. This course has a strong emphasis on the use of variable and inequalities. It also covers operations with integers, number relationships, number theory, patterns and functions, basic geometry, and problem-solving strategies.
Mathematics 8: This course is primarily a pre-Algebra course that is designed to prepare students to take Algebra 1 in high school. This course has a strong emphasis on the use of variables in equations and expressions. It also focuses on operations with integers and fractions. Basic geometric concepts are taught with an emphasis on algebraic thinking. In addition, the course covers word-problem solving strategies, probability, and data analysis.
Honors Algebra 1: This course meets the high school credit requirements for honors Algebra 1. Students must have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the material covered in advanced 7th grade math (pre-Algebra). Emphasis is on Algebraic solutions to complex word problems, including functions and systems of equations. This course also covers operations on polynomials, irrational numbers and quadratic equations. Students are required to take the cumulative semester exams that are given in high school. A "B" average is required each semester for the high school
