• Math 6/7

Math 6/7 and Math 7/8, a two-year compacted course sequence, provides three years of mathematics content in two years, preparing students for Algebra 1 in 8th grade. Math 6/7 will focus on (1) ratio and proportional relationships; (2) number system operations (fractions, decimals, and rational numbers); (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions, equations, and inequalities; (4) geometric problem solving involving area, surface area, and volume and; (5) introducing statistics and probability. The compacted nature of the course will require students to be comfortable and proficient in learning math at an accelerated pace. Placement in Math 6/7 will be determined using a body of evidence to support students’ readiness for success in this course.

### Math 7

Students in Math 7 will build on their own work with rational numbers and algebraic thinking from Math 6 as they move into deeper and more complex math concepts. Math content will focus on four critical areas, including (1) analyzing proportional relationships and using them to solve real-world and mathematical problems; (2) applying and extending previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers and apply these operations to real-world situations; (3) use the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions; and (4) solve real-life and problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations. This work will lay the foundation for the algebraic work with linear functions studied in Math 8.

Math 7/8

Students who have successfully completed Math 6/7 may choose to complete this two-year compacted course sequence, preparing them for Algebra 1 in grade 8. Focus in Math 7/8 will be on solving problems using linear equations and inequalities, using radicals and integer exponents, connecting proportional relationships and lines, solving systems of linear equations, and defining, evaluating, and comparing functions. The full content of Math 8 (see Math 8 course descriptions) will be studied in this course. The compacted nature of the course will require students to be comfortable and proficient in learning math at an accelerated pace. • Andrea Frostholm
