(Offered in 2017-18)
- "flipped" classroom emphasizes at-home learning combined with in-class engagement and application; two days per week
- hands-on learning emphasizes practical application of concepts
Students will apply the tools and language of math to solve a variety of problems, especially as they move into algebraic concepts. In addition, students will learn to verify solutions using methods such as estimation, examples, graphs, and logic. They will develop the ability to explain mathematical concepts and solutions with numbers, symbols, and words. Utilizing the “flipped” classroom model, preparation at home will be assessed and applied in the sessions, demonstrating real-world application of math with in-class lab experiences.
Please note that this class will meet 2x per week in 2017-18, on Mondays and Thursdays.
This course is recommended for all 7th & 8th graders who intend to take high school level math and science courses. The appropriate follow-on course would be Algebra I.
We ask that you download, print, and administer the pre-algebra assessment exam. Mrs. Baker will specify which sections are required (entire test is not necessary for consideration). Please email Mrs. Baker directly for more information on this assessment.
