Mathematics Curriculum Grades 6 - 8

The mathematics program in grades 6-8 is intended to prepare students for the study of Algebra 1 and higher-level mathematics concepts. Modeling and technology are both used throughout the middle school mathematics program so that students gain exposure to real-life applications of mathematical concepts and so that they can continue to develop the higher-order thinking skills necessary for future success. High-achieving students have the opportunity to accelerate during these grade levels in order to set a pathway for a high school course in Calculus.
