MATH
Instructor: Bailey, Suzanne CargleSixth grade students will be actively engaged in developing mathematical understandings in real and relevant contexts. By the end of 6th grade, students will be able to:• Understand the four arithmetic operations as they relate to positive rational numbers and apply them to real world situations• Use the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic• Determine volume and surface area of solid figures• Understand and use the concepts of ratio, proportion, and scale factor• Understand and use line and rotational symmetry• Write and solve proportions and simple onestep equations resulting from problem situations• Understand experimental and theoretical probability• Problem solve, develop arguments, use language of mathematics, make connections, and communicate
Seventh grade students will be actively engaged in developing mathematical understandings in real and relevant contexts. By the end of 7th grade, students will be able to:• Understand and use positive and negative rational numbers• Perform basic geometric constructions• Understand transformations and apply properties of similarity• Sketch, model, and describe crosssections of threedimensional figures• Simplify and evaluate algebraic expressions and solve linear equations in one variable• Describe patterns in the graphs of both direct and inverse proportional relationships• Analyze the characteristics of linear relationships• Use measures of central tendency and variation to analyze data, and understand the role of probability in sampling• Problem solve, develop arguments, use language of mathematics, make connections, and communicate
Eighth grade students will be actively engaged in developing mathematical understandings in real and relevant contexts. By the end of 8th grade, students will be able to:• Understand the numeric and geometric meaning of square root, exponents, and scientific notation• Use and apply geometric properties of plane figures, including congruence and the Pythagorean Theorem• Use linear algebra to represent, analyze, and solve problems• Use equations and inequalities, tables, and graphs to investigate linear relations and functions, paying particular attention to slope asa rate of change• Use and understand set theory and simple counting techniques• Determine the theoretical probability of simple events• Make inferences from statistical data, particularly data that can modeled by linear functions• Problem solve, develop arguments, use language of mathematics, make connections, and communicate
