Setting a foundation

Grades 4th-6th is an ideal time for students to begin developing an intuitive math sense, while also building their fluency in essential topics. The focus is not on memorization, but on building a student’s true, deep-rooted understanding. This gives them the skills they need to succeed, not only in current math classes, but is also foundational to future success in algebra.

GRADE 4 MATH

Math 1

Through lessons and games, students explore and learn about shapes, multiplication, exponents, counting, division, and logical reasoning.

SYLLABUS

Math 2

Students learn by discovering the rules and concepts behind factors, fractions, integers, decimals, and probability.

SYLLABUS

GRADE 5 MATH

Math 1

Students are engaged in discovery about solids, integers, expressions, equations, statistics, factors, multiples, and fractions.

SYLLABUS

Math 2

Students develop a deep understanding of sequences, ratios & rates, decimals, percents, square roots, and exponents.

SYLLABUS

GRADE 6 MATH

PreAlgebra 1

Grounded in the fundamentals of fractions, exponents, and decimals, students explore number theory and algebra, including common divisors and multiples, primes and prime factorizations, basic equations and inequalities, and ratios.

SYLLABUS

PreAlgebra 2

This builds off the concepts mastered in Prealgebra 1 by introducing percents and square roots; dives into an exploration of geometric tools and strategies, and provides an introduction to topics in discrete mathematics and statistics; continues to explore and develop general problem-solving strategies.

Mastering Concepts

A deep dive into algebra and geometry for students in 7th – 10th grade helps them become more focused in their math study. This foundation is not only essential for students to excel in their current math classes. It’s also preparation for the harder math that students will encounter in their more advanced math classes later in high school.

GRADE 7 MATH

Intro to Algebra Part 1

Students explore fundamental concepts of algebra, including exponents and radicals, linear equations and inequalities, ratio and proportion, systems of linear equations, factoring quadratics, complex numbers, completing the square, and the quadratic formula. View the course syllabus.

SYLLABUS

Intro to Algebra Part 2

Students take a deeper dive into algebra, through an exploration of quadratics, systems of equations, clever factorizations, complex numbers, functions, graphing, sequences and series, special functions, exponents and logarithms, and more.

SYLLABUS
