Welcome to 6th-8th Grade Math
8th Grade Math
Topic: Congruence and Similarity. This topic will be subdivided by Congruence:Transformations and Similarities:Transformations and Angles. Students will learn about the different types of transformations: Translations, Reflections, Rotations and Complex Transformations. Students will then apply this knowledge to determine if two figures are congruent. The second half of the topic will have students learning about Dilations and how these create similar figures. Students will then learn about angle relationships and transversal lines in order to determine the measurements of associated angles. They will then use this knowledge to determine similar figures.
7th Grade Math
Topic: Solve Problems Using Equations and Inequalities. Students will use their previous knowledge of solving simple one-step equations in order to write and solve two-step equations, equations with distribution and multi-step equations. They will also expand on their knowledge of inequalities in order to write, solve and graph solutions for inequalities using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Students will then expand on this knowledge to solve multi-step inequalities.
6th Grade Math
Topic: Understand and Use Ratio and Rate. Students will use their previous knowledge of fractions to begin to understand ratios and generate equivalent ratios and compare them. Students will also learn to graph ratios. They will also transfer this knowledge to understand rates and unit rates and then compare those rates and solve problems using ratios and rates. This topic will also have students use their knowledge of customary and metric units in order to compare and rewrite units in different forms. Students will solve word problems using units and conversions.
