Accelerated Math 7/8

  • Welcome to Accelerated Math 7/8!

    Please click here for the course syllabus/description.  

    Accelerated 7/8 is the second course in the accelerated middle school mathematics pathway.  This course incorporates the remaining 7th grade Arizona Mathematics Standards (not part of the 6/7 course) and all of the 8th grade standards.  These standards include a deep understanding of probability and statistics, application of exponents, the geometry concepts of transformations, congruence and similarity, and the study and application of linear functions and systems.  Appropriate technology will be used to enhance mathematical understanding and problem solving skills.  Accelerated 7/8 incorporates many of the concepts and skills previously learned in first semester of Algebra 1 and Geometry.  The course will move at a rapid pace while still meeting all the standards necessary prior to beginning the redesigned and more rigorous Algebra 1 course in grade 8.

    Prerequisite: Successful completion of Accelerated 6/7 Math or teacher recommendation.

    Accelerated 6/7 Math is only open to 7th grade students.

    Curriculum

    We are using Eureka Math/Engage NY as our district curriculum.  Please open the course syllabus/description above for information on the Modules.  Although the lesson numbers are different, the sequence is the same.  

    Lesson Summaries

    If you click on the "+" under the Accelerated Math 7/8 tab on the left side of the screen, you will see "Math 7-8 Modules." Here you have access to copies of the student packet pages, homework assignments for each lesson, and videos for the lesson presentation for the lessons we have covered so far. This is a good resource for students who have been absent and need to complete the notes and examples and understand the lesson.  It is expected that students absent from class due to illness, vacation, or field trips watch the videos and complete the class notes.
