The Middle School Math curriculum for Grades 6, 7, 8 consists of four categories from the PA Common Core standards
- Numbers and Operations
- Algebraic Concepts
- Statistics and Probability
6th graders are focused mainly on operations with fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios. As the students move toward high school, there is heavier emphasis on algebraic topics such as functions and laws of exponents in order to prepare them for Algebra 1 in 9th grade. Our students learn through a variety of methods, including hands-on experiences and group projects from the school district-endorsed Math Assessment Project. Students use TI-73 graphing calculators to assist and enhance their learning, but are not dependent on them to solve problems. To enrich our curriculum, programs are offered before and after school such as Extended Day, Math Club, and Math Counts.
