### Math 5

This course uses place value to help gain number sense, strengthening multiplication and division skills, operations with decimals and fractions, algebraic expressions and equations, as well as geometric concepts including volume. Attention is given to fluency with basic math facts, problem solving, and real world applications of mathematical concepts.

### Math 6

This course covers the foundational topics of: ratios and proportional relationships including percent; operations with decimals and fractions; introduction to positive and negative numbers and the coordinate plane; algebraic expressions and equations; geometric concepts including area and surface area; and statistical concepts including measures and displays.  Students are able to complete performance activities to show what they know in a non-traditional way, giving attention to problem solving, and real world applications of mathematical concepts.

### Math 7

The focus of this course is to continue to build the foundation necessary for the success in the study of algebra. Students will concentrate on the following domains: integers and rational numbers, expressions, equations and inequalities, ratios and proportional relationships, geometry, and statistics and probability.

### Math 7/8 Honors

This fast-paced accelerated course covers half of the 7th grade curriculum and the entire 8th grade curriculum. This course: ratios and proportional relationships including percents; real numbers including exponents; expressions, equations, functions, and inequalities in one and two variables; geometric concepts including angles, parallel lines, Pythagorean theorem, transformations, congruence and similarity, volume and surface area; investigation into probability and statistics. Students who complete this course successfully will be in our algebra class in their 8th grade year.

### Math 8

The focus of this course is to continue to build the foundation necessary for the success in the study of Algebra. Students will concentrate on the following domains: integers and rational numbers, expressions, equations and inequalities, ratios and proportional relationships, geometry, and statistics and probability.

### Algebra 1 (Common Core)

This course is a one-year Regents level course that follows the standards set forth by the New York State Education Department. While the curriculum has a focus on algebra, other topics such as geometric shapes, functions, probability, trigonometry and real number systems are all featured as part of the course. Integrated Algebra satisfies year one of the three year mathematics requirement for a Regents Diploma.

Prerequisite: 8th grade students may take Integrated Algebra 1 (cc) if they have at least a 90 average in Math 7/8 Honors.
