 Learning Center Math 6/7/8:

We will discover the many uses for math and how mathematicians know many short cuts that actually make math easy. Students in this math class are in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade and come to the class with varying degrees of experience and knowledge with math. Standards that students will be expected to learn will vary depending on their grade level and background. In each of the following areas there will be three sets of standards. 

1.  The Number System

2. Ratios & Proportional relationships

3. Expressions and Equations

4. Functions

5. Geometry

6. Statistics and Probability

Students will work through the standards that are appropriate for their grade level and background knowledge of math in each area. This may be different for each of the areas. For example, some people grasp the visual aspect of geometry quickly, while struggling with the more abstract concept of expressions and equations. This course is designed to meet students where they are at in each of the 6 areas and help move them along to the next level, while also applying these math skills to real world applications.

 Grading:

As we work towards accepting more assignments online students will start seeing some grades show up in their canvas course. Please realize this is not their course grade. This grade includes scores that will not be counted in their final grade (such as pre-assessments) and does not include other grades that were not completed in Canvas (such as labs). Looking at Canvas grades can show which Canvas assignments have been turned in and other important information. However, for an accurate reflection of a student's learning and their current grade in a course please refer to PowerSchool. PowerSchool reflects a students actual current grade in a class. Canvas grades do not.
