Description: We will cover the concepts students need to master as they prepare for Middle School Math. Various concepts include: order of operations, geometry and measurement, integers, divisibility concepts, ratios, statistics and probability, prime and composite numbers, patterns and sequences, decimals and percentages, powers and roots. Students will specifically learn about making a multiplication table, adding/subtracting fractions with a common denominator, multiplying by multiples of 10 and 100, perimeter, simple probability, decimal parts of a meter, reciprocals, volume, square roots, graphing points on a coordinate plane, and more. In addition to classroom teaching, other resources will be used to enhance the class and help students to better understand the course material when they are working on their own. Homework will be assigned for each day of the week, and tests will be given periodically to solidify the student’s understanding of the material. If your child is advanced in math as a 5th grader, and will be heading into 6th grade math, please look into Middle School Math #1 class.

Description: This is an introduction to what students will face as they enter middle school math. We create a path for students to develop an in-depth understanding of key mathematical concepts needed to succeed in higher level math classes. This foundational class introduces the concepts needed for Middle School Math #2 (7th grade math) and some early Pre-Algebra. We will cover whole numbers, rational numbers, decimals, number theory, fractions, ratios, proportions, percentages, data/graphs, geometry concepts, and integers in preparation for one-and two-step equations and inequalities. In addition to classroom teaching, some on-line teaching resources (videos & examples) will be used to enhance the class and help students when they are working on their own to better understand the course material. Homework will be assigned to enhance classroom lessons and given for each day of the week, while tests will be given at the end of each chapter. If your child is advanced in math as a 6th grader, please look into Middle School Math #2 class.
