Middle School Mathematics 

 
 

Middle School Mathematics is developmentally appropriate and designed to meet students' intellectual, social and emotional neeeds. The curriculum and assessment component of the program are conceptually oriented and contain a broad range of content. Curriculum and assessment activities allow students to experience success and helps students build positive attitudes toward mathematics and toward themselves as mathematical problem-solvers. Development of students' abilities to think, to reason, to solve problems and to communicate their understanding of mathematical concepts is a major focus of the program.

 

Sixth Grade Math:

By the end of grade six, students will understand the four arithmetic operations as they relate to positive rational numbers; convert between and compute with different forms of rational numbers; understand the concept of ratio and solve problems using proportional reasoning; understand and use line and rotational symmetry; determine the surface area and volume of solid figures; use variables to represent unknown quantities in formulae, algebraic expressions and equations; utilize data to make predictions; and determine the probability of a given event.


Seventh Grade Math:

By the end of grade seven, students will understand and use rational numbers, including signed numbers; solve linear equations in one variable; sketch and construct plane figures; demonstrate understanding of transformations; use and apply properties of similarity; examine properties of geometric shapes in space; describe and sketch solid figures, including their cross-sections; represent and describe relationships between variables in tables, graphs, and formulas; analyze the characteristics of linear relationships; and represent and analyze data using graphical displays, measures of central tendency, and measures of variation. 


Eighth Grade Math:

By the end of grade eight, students will understand various numerical representations, including square roots, exponents and scientific notation; use and apply geometric properties of plane figures, including congruence and the Pythagorean theorem; use symbolic algebra to represent situations and solve problems, especially those that involve linear relationships; solve linear equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities; use equations, tables and graphs to analyze and interpret linear functions; use and understand-08d set theory and simple counting techniques; determine the theoretical probability of simple events; and make inferences from statistical data, particularly data that can be modeled by linear functions.
