6 - 8 Grade Mathematics classes: Aleks

McGraw Hill's ALEKS is an adaptive math program that is adopted for use with middle school math courses that also use the Glencoe curriculum materials.  Please check with your administrator or program specialist if you are using it with another course.

Algebra I and Geometry: Big Ideas Math

Big Ideas Math is the adopted curriculum for Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. It was implemented in the 2017-18 school year.  You have access to the 2019 online updates when you use the digital platform.

6th Grade Content is focused on these areas:

1) developing understanding ratio, rate and proportion and application in a variety of contexts;

2) extending understanding of the number system and operations to include rational numbers: fractions, decimals and negative numbers;

3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations;

4) describing and summarizing numerical data sets;

5) reasoning about relationships among shapes to determine area, surface area and volume.

NOTE:  Students in 7th grade who take Algebra will be attending that class at Eastlake High School.

 7th Grade Math Content Areas Algebra I (1) develop understanding of and apply proportional relationships; (2) develop understanding of operations with rational numbers (explain the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing with negative numbers) and work with expressions and linear equations; (3) solve problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and work with two- and three- dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) draw inferences about populations based on samples.  The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout the course. District adopted curriculum: Glencoe Math Course 2 1) Write equations and functions (linear, exponential, quadratic, sequences); 2) Solve linear equations, inequalities, systems, and quadratic equations; 3) Graph linear, quadratic, exponential functions and linear systems including transformations; 4) Translate between various forms of expressions using properties (linear, quadratic, exponential, polynomial); 5) Apply problem solving strategies to analyze, model, and interpret data and solutions to real world scenarios. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout the course. District-adopted curriculum: Big Ideas Math
