7th Grade Math Courses

 Math 7 A & B:

This course is a continuation of a three-course sequence started in the 6th grade. This course covers real world and mathematical problems using proportions; relationships with algebraic expressions and equations; geometry concepts; rational numbers, statistics and data; and probabilities. A scientific calculator similar to a TI-30XIIs is needed for this course


 

8th Grade Math Courses

Algebra 8A (8)
Algebra 8B (8)
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Math 7
This course covers fundamental algebra topics students need for high school math courses as well as post high school careers and education. Topics covered include: rational and irrational numbers, exponents and scientific notation, functions, linear functions, evaluating and solving equations, graphing and solving inequalities, sequences, systems of equations, Pythagorean theorem, coordinate geometry, scatterplots and line of best fit. A scientific calculator is required for this course.


 

9th Grade Math Courses

Algebra 9A (9)
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 8
Algebra 9B (9)
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 9A
This course covers fundamental algebra topics students need for high school math courses as well as post high school careers and education. Topics covered include: Exponents, Quadratic Equations, Factoring, Radical Expressions, Radical Equations, Data and Probability. A graphing calculator is required for this course

Geometry A (9 - 12)
Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Algebra 9B
Geometry B (9 - 12)
Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Geometry A
Geometry is the study of logical reasoning, lines, planes, and their relationship to triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, and other plane figures. Emphasis is given to writing deductive proofs. Students will apply concepts of shape, space and measurement to illustrate and describe the physical world and solve problems. Students will use measurements directly and indirectly, review equations from algebra and graph in two dimensions.

 

Algebra IIA (9 - 12)
Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Geometry B
Algebra IIB (9 - 12)
Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Algebra IIA
Algebra II is an extension of Algebra I. This course includes the study of linear, quadratic, rational, polynomial, exponential and logarithmic equations. Students are required to have a graphing calculator equivalent to a TI-83 or better for this course
