COURSE OVERVIEW
Course Length: 2 semestersCourse Program: - Homeschool Advantage – NFC Academy Teachers (accredited),
- Homeschool Edition – Home Teacher (accredited),
- Homeschool Basics – Home Teacher (not accredited)
Accredited: Cognia-SACS, Middle States, FACCS.Mathematics 700 is designed to prepare junior-high students for Pre-algebra. This course focuses on strengthening needed skills in problem solving, number sense, and proportional reasoning. It also introduces students to integers, equations, and geometric concepts. Students will begin to see the "big picture" of mathematics and learn how numeric, algebraic, and geometric concepts are woven together to build a foundation for higher mathematical thinking.
Students who are qualified may take Pre-algebra as their math course in seventh grade. Pre-algebra is an introductory algebra course designed to prepare middle school students for Algebra I, which if taken in the seventh grade, would mean the student would be able to take Algebra I in eighth grade for high school credit. |
COURSE CONCEPTS & SAMPLES Curriculum Focus*Integers: Students will learn how to locate, add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers to solve word problems, as well as compare integers using absolute value and the order of operation.**Fractions: Students will understand how fractions can be written into other forms without changing their value, and how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions.**Decimals: Students will explore how to rewrite fractions as decimals, and how to use decimals to solve real-world problems.**Patterns and Equations: Students will learn how to translate words into equations and use them to solve number patterns.**Ratios and Proportions: Students will explore how to use ratios to compare numbers, solve proportions, and convert between percents, decimals, and fractions.**Probability and Graphing: Students will be able to determine the probability of an event, and if they are independent or dependent events, as well as create a graph of an equation.**Data Analysis: Students will learn how to interpret statistics using stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, and other graphical means.**Geometry: Students will explore how points, lines, and planes interact and how to solve equations using their information.**Measurement and Area: Students will learn about finding perimeters and areas of different polygons, and using the Pythagorean theorem to solve problems.**Surface Area and Volume: Students will explore three-dimensional figures and how to find the surface area, volume of them.*

**Middle School Courses****ACCELERATED MATH OPTION: PRE-ALGEBRA**

COURSE OVERVIEWPre-algebra is an introductory algebra course designed to prepare junior-high school students for Algebra I. The 8th grade homeschool course focuses on strengthening needed skills in problem solving, integers, equations, and graphing. Students will begin to see the "big picture" of mathematics and learn how numeric, algebraic, and geometric concepts are woven together to build a foundation for higher mathematical thinking.
Students who may have taken Pre-algebra in seventh grade or demonstrate through quantifiable academic work may be approved to take Algebra I in eighth grade for High School credit. Algebra I is a full year, high school credit course that is intended for the student who has successfully mastered the core algebraic concepts covered in the prerequisite course, Pre-Algebra. Within the Algebra I course, the student will explore basic algebraic fundamentals such as evaluating, creating, solving and graphing linear, quadratic, and polynomial functions. Upon completion of the course the student’s goals are to successfully, solve single variable, absolute value, and linear systems of equations; solve and graph single variable, absolute value, and linear inequalities; evaluate, solve, and graph linear and quadratic functions as well as conceptualize the relationship between the independent and dependent variable of a function; understand and know how to apply the distance, midpoint, and slope formulas as well as the Pythagorean theorem; form an equation of a line using the slope-intercept, point-slope and standard forms of a line; organize data in the form of a table or matrix; perform complex matrix operations such as multiplication, evaluating the determinant, and solving a system of linear equations using Cramer's Rule; apply basic fundamental rules of exponents; be able to construct a formula or equation necessary to solve algebraic word problems involving area, perimeter, and linear systems of equations, basic probability and statistical reasoning, distance, and compounding interest; evaluate rational expressions and solve equations with rational expressions; and, simplify and perform operations with radical expressions and polynomials. COURSE LENGTHThis course is 2 semesters as a full year course. |
