# Accelerated 7B and 8th Grade Mathematics

last edited by 6 years, 3 months ago

The 6-8 standards are organized using domains, overarching ideas that connect topics across the grades, clusters that illustrate progression of increasing complexity from grade to grade, and standards which define what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. These standards include skills and knowledge – what students need to know and be able to do, as well as mathematical practices – habits of mind that students should develop to foster mathematical understanding and expertise. The 6-8 standards are organized in the following domains: ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability.

Having built a strong foundation in K-5, students are prepared for robust learning in geometry, algebra, and probability and statistics in middle school. The middle school standards provide a coherent and rich preparation for high school mathematics.

By the end of this course, students will  understand various numerical representations, including square roots, exponents and scientific notation; use and apply geometric properties of plane figures, including congruence and the Pythagorean theorem; use symbolic algebra to represent situations and solve problems, especially those that involve linear relationships; solve linear equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities; use equations, tables and graphs to analyze and interpret linear functions; use and understand set theory and simple counting techniques; determine the theoretical probability of simple events; and make inferences from statistical data, particularly data that can be modeled by linear functions. Instruction and assessment should include  the appropriate use of manipulatives and technology. Topics should be represented in  multiple ways, such as concrete/pictorial, verbal/written, numeric/data-based, graphical, and symbolic. Concepts should be introduced and used, where appropriate, in the context of realistic phenomena.
