Course Summary

  Math7 reviews and extends the development of the number system carried on in the intermediate grades. Content includes work on the fundamental operations and the use of these operations with the various subsets of the real number system such as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and integers. An effort is made to keep these numbers and operations usable by including applications to real life situations.

  Pre-Algebra  is designed to bridge the similarities of arithmetic and algebra. This course will contain spiraling reinforcement of basic algebraic concepts and topics in order to prepare students for successful placement in Algebra 1-2. This course will cover the content standards for Pre-Algebra, including operations on real numbers, conversions among fractions, decimals, and percents, solving linear equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations, working with polynomials, and using measures of central tendency to interpret data.
