**Sixth Grade Math**

Sixth Grade Mathematics is offered for students who have mastered the fifth grade standards for mathematics. Sixth Grade Mathematics is the study of operations using positive rational numbers; ratio, proportion, and percents; customary units; the metric system; plane and solid geometry; data and statistics; translating and evaluating algebraic expressions; and solving one-step algebraic equations.

**Seventh Grade Math**

Seventh Grade Mathematics is offered for students who have mastered the sixth grade standards for mathematics. Seventh Grade Mathematics is the study of operations using positive rational numbers and integers; algebraic expressions and linear equations; customary units; the metric system; proportional relationships; scale drawings; and using two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving perimeter, area, surface area, and volume.

**Eighth Grade Math**

Eighth Grade Mathematics is offered for students who have mastered the seventh grade standards for mathematics. Eighth Grade Mathematics is the study of the real number system; operations with rational numbers; algebraic expressions and linear equations; slope; using functions to describe linear relationships; probability; the Pythagorean Theorem; and area of shaded regions.

**Eighth Grade Algebra I**

Eighth Grade Algebra is offered for students who have mastered the seventh grade standards for mathematics. Placement is based upon outstanding achievement in seventh grade mathematics, teacher recommendation, and scores on the mathematics placement assessments. Eighth Grade Algebra I is the study of the real number system; operations with rational numbers; algebraic expressions and linear equations; slope; using functions to describe linear relationships; systems of equations; polynomials; factoring; and area of shaded regions.
