Course Overviews

Course 1

Course 1 is a rigorous 6th grade mathematics class that covers 100% of the 6tth grade California Common Core Standards for Mathematics.  Students’ performance throughout Course 1 will be used in determining progression to Course 2 or Course 2/3A in 7th grade.  Key areas of focus in Course 1 include:

  • Developing an understanding of ratio and rate and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems
  • Extending the notion of the number system to include rational numbers
  • Writing, interpreting and using expressions and equations
  • Working with two- and three- dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area and volume
  • Developing an understanding of statistical thinking

Textbook: Course 1, Math in Focus: Singapore Math (Houghton Mifflin), 2013.

 

Course 2

Course 2 is a rigorous 7th grade mathematics class that covers 100% of the 7th grade California Common Core Standards for Mathematics. Students successfully completing Course 2 will progress to Course 3. Key areas of focus in Course 2 include:

  • Developing an understanding of and applying proportional relationships
  • Developing an understanding of operations with rational numbers
  • Working with algebraic expressions and linear equations
  • Creating informal geometric constructions
  • Working with two- and three- dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area and volume
  • Drawing inferences about populations based on data samples.

Course 2/3A

Course 2/3A is a highly accelerated (fast-paced) class in which 100% of the 7th grade California Common Core Standards for Mathematics will be covered in addition to 50% of the 8th grade California Common Core Standards for Mathematics. Students successfully completing Course 2/3A will progress to Course 3B/Algebra1.

Textbook: Course 2 and 3A, Math in Focus: Singapore Math (Houghton Mifflin), 2013

 

Course 3

Course 3 is a rigorous 8th grade mathematics class that covers 100% of the 8th grade California Common Core Standards for Mathematics.  Students successfully completing Course 3 will progress to Algebra 1. Key areas of focus in Course 3 include:

  • Formulating and reasoning about algebraic expressions and equations
  • Modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation
  • Solving linear equations and systems of linear equations
  • Grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships
  • Analyzing two- and three- dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity and congruence (including using transformations of translations, rotations, reflections and dilations)
  • Understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem
