Sixth Graders are completing their unit on per cents and will focus on Geometry. They will start with lines and planes, continue with identifying and classifying angles, triangles and polygons. They will complete the unit identifying congruent figures, parts of a circle and circle graphs. They will extend the study of area of two dimensional figures and surface area and volume for three dimensional figures.
Seventh Graders will identify relations and functions, solve linear equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities and solve a problem by graphing. Next, they will use properties of figures to solve problems, classify geometric figures, and construct figures. They will move on to find the areas, surface areas, and volumes of some basic geometric figures.
Eighth Graders will simplify polynomials by adding, subtracting or multiplying. They will also factor polynomial expressions. They will also solve quadratic equations using a variety of methods.
