Math Tutoring

The Math Department will be offering tutoring every Tuesday and Friday morning at 8:30.
A schedule showing times and the room numbers will be posted near the cafeteria, in
the media center, and in the math classrooms.

 

6TH GRADE MATHEMATICS (GENERAL)

This course covers the four basic operations with whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. Study also includes exponents, order of operations, ratios, proportions, basic geometry, estimation, data display, standard and metric measurement, and the use of variables. Problem-solving strategies are strengthened through Math Superstars.

 

6TH GRADE MATHEMATICS (ADVANCED)

This course goes beyond the standard sixth grade course by including operations with integers. Students also work with negative exponents, solve several types of percent problems, and solve multi-step equations in one variable. Problem-solving strategies are strengthened through Math Superstars. The aim of this course is to prepare students for Pre-Alegbra in 7th grade.

 

7TH GRADE MATHEMATICS (GENERAL)

This course covers a variety of general math topics and is designed to reinforce and develop basic math skills. Some of the topics covered will include the following: basic statistics, number theory, algebraic reasoning, proportional reasoning, percentages, probability, and basic geometry. FCAT readiness is also integrated throughout this course.

 

7TH GRADE MATHEMATICS (ADVANCED)

This course is primarily a Pre-Algebra course that is designed to prepare students for the high school level Honors Algebra I in eighth grade. This course has a strong emphasis on the use of variable and inequalities. It also covers operations with integers, number relationships, number theory, patterns and functions, basic geometry, and problem-solving strategies.

 

7TH GRADE ALGEBRA HONORS - (Pre-requisites:  Teacher recommendation and must meet required test scores on state tests and algebra diagnostic test.  This is an HonorsHigh School course so students are skipping 7th and 8th grade.  Students arerequired to complete several online tutoring sessions in summer to cover the7th grade skills they will miss.  They will earn High School credit for successfulthis course and take the state mandated End of Course test.  The course covers set theory, equations/inequalities, relations and functions, graphing systems of equations, polynomials, factoring, radical expressions and quadraticequations.  

 

8TH GRADE MATHEMATICS (GENERAL)

This course is primarily a pre-Algebra course that is designed to prepare students to take Algebra 1 in high school. This course has a strong emphasis on the use of variables in equations and expressions. It also focuses on operations with integers and fractions. Basic geometric concepts are taught with an emphasis on algebraic thinking. In addition, the course covers word-problem solving strategies, probability, and data analysis.

 

8TH GRADE MATHEMATICS (ADVANCED)

This course is an advanced pre-Algebra course that is designed to prepare students to take Honors Algebra 1 in high school. It has a strong emphasis on Algebraic thinking and problem-solving. It focuses on Algebraic equations and expressions that contain integers and fractions. It also covers geometry, data analysis and probability. The pace of this course is accelerated and the material is at an increased level of difficulty.

 

8TH GRADE GEOMETRY HONORS - In-depth study of geometry with emphasis on the formallanguage of mathematics including structure, properties, angle concepts, proofs, planes,polygons, similarity,  congruence, and constructions.  This course strengthens skills to prepare a student for Algebra II Honors.  They will earn High School credit for successful completion of this course.

 

HONORS ALGEBRA 1

This course meets the high school credit requirements for honors Algebra 1. Students must have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the material covered in advanced 7th grade math (pre-Algebra). Emphasis is on Algebraic solutions to complex word problems, including functions and systems of equations. This course also covers operations on polynomials, irrational numbers and quadratic equations. Students are required to take the cumulative semester I and semester II exams that are given in high school.
