Seventh grade students are placed in the appropriate level math class after carefully considering the following categories: performance in 6th grade math, algebra assessment test, standardized test scores, and teacher recommendation.
The topics covered include number sense, fractions, factors, exponents, simplifying expressions, solving and graphing linear equations, ratios, proportions, percent, probability, and statistics.
Topics covered include Number Sense, Fractions, Factors & Exponents, Simplifying Expressions, Solving and Graphing Linear Equations, Ratios & Proportions, Percent, Probability, and Statistics. While these are the same topics as the Pre-Algebra course, the topics are covered in greater depth and at a faster pace.
