    6th grade:

    1st Nine Weeks- Students will understand whole numbers, fractions, decimals, integers, factors and multiples, as well as, applying operations to whole numbers fractions and decimals. 

    2nd Nine Weeks- Students will study proportionality and algebraic representations and applications.  Students will also explore geometry with angles, triangles and quadrilaterals.

    3rd Nine Weeks- Students will apply measurement to two-dimensional figures, capacity, weight, time, temperature and volume. Students will also cover statistical representations and analyze them. 

    4th Nine Weeks- Students will study probability and learn how to make connections between all concepts. 

     

    7th grade: 

    1st Nine Weeks- Students will understand and learn how to apply operations to integers and positive rational numbers. They will also study applications of similar figure representations. 

    2nd Nine Weeks- Students will study geometry as it applies to coordinate planes, graphing transformations, and perspectives. Students will also examine algebraic expressions and equations.

    3rd Nine Weeks: Students will apply measurement to two and three dimensional figures along with analyzing statistical representations.

    4th Nine Weeks: Students will explore probability and learn how to make connects between all concepts.

     

    8th grade: 

    1st Nine Weeks: Students will study operations of rational numbers as well as proportionality. 

    2nd Nine Weeks: Students will review transformations on a coordinate plane and perspectives. Students will explore algebraic representations, irrational numbers and Pythagorean Theorem. 

    3rd Nine Weeks: Students will apply measurements to two and three dimensional figures, discuss probability, and analyze statistical representations. 

    4th Nine Weeks: Students will discover how to make connections to other concepts and investigate the graphing calculator.
