Foundations of Pre-Algebra
This course is for eighth grade students who are below grade level in math.  The course offers an alternate approach to learning mathematics skills that are on grade level.  Learning activities will involve the use of manipulatives, skill development activities, and technology to address different learning styles.
 
Pre-Algebra
This course is for 8th grade level students.
A variety of topics (including readings in mathematics, computers and the Internet, and projects for the enrichment of mathematics education) is incorporated.  Placement into this class is based upon teacher recommendation and performance on a general mathematics test, which includes basic skills, concepts, and applications.  Topics include:
s Evaluating algebraic expressions
s Linear equations and inequalities
s The real number system
s Percent
s Geometry and measurement
s Probability and statistics including permutations and combination
 
Pre-Algebra Advanced
This course is designed for sixth and seventh grade students who are advanced in mathematics.  It serves as a alternative to the traditional Pre-Algebra course.  Instruction will include an overview of topics that are nor4mally covered in Math I and II.  Instruction will occur at a pace suitable for advanced learners with high level of rigor.
 
Algebra I
This class parallels the high school algebra course.  It is designed for mathematic students who are capable of thinking at an abstract level.  Standard topics from algebra are taught but with an emphasis on algebraic thinking, reasoning, and application. Topic include:
s Linear equations and inequalities
s Absolute value equations
s Conjunctions and disjunctions
s Solving systems of linear equations
s Polynomials
s Operations on rational expressions and equations
s Quadratic functions and the real number system
s Topics and applications from probability and statistics
 
Geometry
Geometry is the mathematics of the properties, measurement, and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids.  The topics that are studied include lines and angles, triangle congruence, quadrilaterals, lines and planes, similar polygons, use of the Pythagorean Theorem, circle and their parts, area, surface area, volume, coordinate geometry, and constructions.
 
Problem solving strategies, mathematical reasoning, and communications skills both written and verbal, will be used on a regular basis.  Students will develop their conceptual understandings of the listed topics through proof, transformations, and constructions.
