Welcome to Course 2
Course 2 is the middle level mathematics class which is aligned mostly with the 7th grade State Standards. In Course 2 we solidify all foundational skills to prepare students for higher levels mathematics, while dabbling in a little beginning algebra. Here are the topics we plan to cover throughout the year:
◊ Two-Dimensional Geometry
◊ Operations with Positive & Negative Rational Numbers
◊ Proportional Reasoning & Similarity
◊ Ratio, Proportion, and Percent
◊ Algebraic Expressions and Equations
◊ Measurement and Shape in 2- and 3- Dimensions
◊ Probability and Expected Values
Math is a skill based subject and requires regular practice, therefore homework is assigned regularly and will be posted on this page. It is best to complete the assignments by their due dates, however late assignments are accepted until the unit test. There will be summative assessment (test and/or project) given at the end of each unit. Whenever a test is scheduled, the students will know a week in advance to help them plan and prepare. Afterwards, the students will be asked to discuss their test results with their parents and ask to have it signed. Test Corrections are discussed in class and an overview is attached to this page, along with the Routines and Expectations (and Notecards). Please, either ask your child to explain these routines or feel free to read the attachments.
I look forward to a positive growth year with your child and you.
