Students enrolled in this course will take The Big Ideas Math program which addresses all of the 6th grade standards as outlined by the PA Core Standards. The students will receive a solid foundation in multiplying and dividing decimals and fractions, understanding number sense with whole numbers and integers, area of twodimensional shapes, surface area and volume of prisms, and working with expressions, equations, and inequalities which are the necessary concepts needed to be successful in prealgebra. The program utilizes a researchbased, balanced instructional approach that includes both inquirybased learning and direct instruction lessons.
A smaller class setting is utilized to provide more individualized instruction and remediation. Additional attention is given to assist students in the acquisition of more abstract topics. The purpose of this course is to meet the needs of students requiring more assistance.

The pacing of the course will also be faster than the academic course. Finally, assessments will be designed to measure students’ mastery of the material at the synthesis and application levels.
A smaller class setting is utilized to provide more individualized instruction and remediation. Additional attention is given to assist students in the acquisition of more abstract topics. The purpose of this course is to meet the needs of students requiring more assistance and provide the opportunity for them to return to an academic pathway. In seventh grade PreAlgebra, students develop the concepts needed to prepare for Algebra 1. The PreAlgebra curriculum provides a strong foundation in algebra while also preparing students for future study in areas of geometry, probability, and data analysis. The curriculum has a strong focus on algebraic concepts and reasoning, solving of equations and inequalities, and geometry.
Students enrolled in this course will be taught using the Big Ideas Math program which addresses all of the 7^{th} grade standards outlined by the PA Core Standards. This program utilizes a researchedbased, balanced instructional approach that includes both inquirybased learning and direct instruction lessons. This program also exposes students to highly motivating and relevant problems that are woven with careerreadiness and collegereadiness preparation. The students will receive a solid foundation in algebraic concepts.
Emphasis will be given to topics that are considered to be the foundation for an academic Algebra 1 course. In seventh grade PreAlgebra, students develop the concepts needed to prepare for Algebra 1.

The students will receive a solid foundation in algebraic concepts.
This course is designed to lead into the advanced Algebra 1 course and later into the honors and advanced placement sequence in mathematics at the high school level. Consequently, the course content will be substantial and more rigorous than the academic course. The pacing of the course will also be considerably faster than the academic course. There will also be additional content taught (radicals, integer exponents, solving linear equations and inequalities, and advanced work with proportional relationships and probabilities). Finally, assessments will be designed to measure students’ mastery of the material at the synthesis and application levels.
Students enrolled in this course will be utilize the Foundations of Algebra 1 program which addresses all of the content outlined in the PA Core Standards. This program utilizes a researchbased instructional approach that includes both inquirybased learning and direct instruction lessons. This program exposes students to a solid foundation in Algebra 1.
A smaller class setting is utilized to provide more individualized instruction and remediation. Additional attention is given to assist students in the acquisition of more abstract topics. The purpose of this course is to meet the needs of students requiring more assistance. The content of Algebra 1 is organized around families of functions, with special emphasis on linear functions. As students learn about each family of functions, they will learn to represent them in multiple ways. They will also learn to model reallife situations using functions in order to solve problems arising from those situations.
Advanced Algebra 1 is the first formally structured course of the Honors sequence. The content is organized around the families of functions, with special emphasis on linear and quadratic functions, along with representing functions in multiple ways through inquirybased learning in real world situations. In addition to its Algebra content, the course offers lessons on probability and data analysis as well as numerous examples and exercises involving mathematical connections to Geometry. Algebra 1 provides instruction and practice on standardized test questions in a variety of formats including multiplechoice, short response, and extended response.
