6th/7th/8th: Illustrative Mathematics

6th Grade Math

Focus on four critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking.

7th Grade Math

Focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

8th Grade Math

Focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.

7th/8th Compressed Math

Focus on all the 7th grade and one half of the 8th grade standards.  The remaining one half of 8th grade standards will be covered in the Algebra 1 course.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is a high school level class intended for students ready for advanced math. Students will complete a standard Algebra 1 course and one half of the 8th grade standards. Students enrolled have completed the 7th/8th Compressed Math class or transferred in with a comparable course.
