** Grade: 5 | Math 5**

*
Prerequisite: None
*

5th-grade math allows students to build on their basic math skills while providing opportunities for rigor, higher order, and critical thinking. Topics such as adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, decimals and fractions, data analysis, simplifying numerical and algebraic expressions, and finding the perimeter, area, and volume of various polygons supplement daily skills such as place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers.

Extensions to 5th grade include multiplying and dividing mixed numbers, dividing decimals by decimals, introduction to algebraic equations and integers, and ordered pairs in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane.

** Grade: 6 | Math 6**

*
Prerequisite: None
*

This course will develop and extend procedures for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of integers and positive rational numbers. Students will also develop an understanding of and learn how to solve ratio and rate problems, create equivalent ratios that describe situations involving proportionality, solve problems involving proportional relationships, use expressions and equations to represent relationships in various contexts and use mathematical symbols. In addition, students will build on their understanding of measurement, including area, volume, and triangle properties. Data analysis and measures of center and variation will be studied.

An extension of 6th grade will include analyzing and solving percent problems, generating equivalent expressions, and solving problems using equations and inequalities. Geometry concepts will include solving problems involving surface area and area and volume of composite shapes.

** Grade: 7 | Math 7**

*
Prerequisite: None
*

Students will develop fluency with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of rational numbers and use operations to solve problems. They will also use reasoning about ratios, rates, proportionality, and percent to solve problems, select, justify, and use appropriate symbolic representations to solve problems in varied contexts, including the use of geometric formulas for pyramids and circles.

** Grade: 8 | Pre-algebra **

*
Prerequisite: None
*

Students will cover all TEKS for Grade 8 and a portion of the TEKS for Algebra 1. Students will develop fluency with rational number computation, roots, order of operations, ratios & proportions, expressions, equations, slope, and linear equations. They will also be able to elect, justify, and use appropriate symbolic representations to solve problems in varied contexts, including geometric formulas for pyramids and circles and representations of center, spread, and shape to compare and form inferences about data sets. This course serves as preparation for Algebra 1.
