In sixth grade Course 2, students develop the concepts needed to prepare for PreAlgebra. The Book 2 curriculum focuses on rational numbers, their operations, and their algebraic representations. It focuses on problemsolving situations and the use of estimation to check reasonableness. Measurement conversions, area, averages, data analysis, and data display are also stressed. There is focus on equations and functions, geometry, square roots, and probability. The curriculum also prepares students for standardized tests while meeting Pennsylvania State Standards and Guidelines.
Specific areas of study will include: describing patterns, evaluating variable expressions, solving twostep equations, solving inequalities, writing and evaluating functions rules, using and interpreting exponents, representing numbers in exponential form, evaluating problems using the correct order of operations, using formulas to find perimeter, circumference, and area, solve word problems using the 4step plan, rounding, comparing, ordering, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, decimals, fractions, and integers, using the metric system and customary units of measurement, finding the mean, median, mode, and range of data, creating and interpreting bar, line, circle, and histograms, writing, comparing, and solving problems using ratios, rates, and percents, classifying and comparing angles, triangles and polygons, finding probability using outcomes, tree diagrams, and the counting principles.
In seventh grade PreAlgebra, students develop the concepts needed to prepare for Algebra 1. The PreAlgebra curriculum provides a strong foundation in algebra while also preparing students for future study in areas of geometry, probability, and data analysis. The curriculum has a strong focus on algebraic concepts and reasoning, solving of equations and inequalities, and geometry. The curriculum also prepares students for standardized tests while meeting Pennsylvania State Standards and Guidelines.
Specific topics of study will include: writing and evaluating algebraic expressions, simplifying expressions, writing, solving and graphing equations and inequalities, writing and solving proportions, simplifying ratios and finding probabilities, solving percent problems, applying rules of exponents and properties of square roots, writing and graphing linear functions and system of linear equations, identifying and applying properties of triangles and quadrilaterals, exploring right triangles using the Pythagorean Theorem, exploring angle relationships, similarity and congruence of geometric figures, finding perimeter, circumference, area, surface area and volume of geometric figures, finding the slope of a line, graphing various data displays, and evaluating formulas.
Specific areas of study will include: writing and evaluating expressions, solving equations and inequalities, applying properties of real numbers, solving linear equations, graphing linear equations and functions, writing linear equations, calculating probabilities and analyzing data, solving and graphing linear inequalities, solving systems of equations and inequalities, identifying and applying properties of exponents and exponential functions, factoring polynomials, modeling quadratic equations and functions, and solving problems involving radicals and geometry connections.
