GRADE 7 MATH
7th Grade Math is designed to empower students to learn mathematics effectively and independently. Depending on the topics covered, different approaches are adopted for the presentation of concepts to facilitate clear understanding, to aid in the internalization of concepts, and to instill in our students an interest to explore mathematical topics further. The textbook used is called, Dimensions Math Common Core and is a text series designed for middle school. Each book includes appropriate examples, class activities, and diagrams to help understand concepts and apply them in real-life situations. 7th Grade Math is designed to equip students to transition into 8th Grade Math.
GRADE 8 PRE-ALGEBRA MATH
8th Grade Pre-Algebra is designed to equip students with solid foundations to transition into high school Algebra 1. The textbook, Connected Math Project, was developed by Michigan State University. CMP is a problem-centered curriculum promoting an inquiry-based teaching-learning classroom environment. Mathematical ideas are identified and embedded in a carefully sequenced set of tasks and explored in depth to allow students to develop rich mathematical understandings and meaningful skills.
