Students should have a solid understanding of the concepts covered in Mathematics 1 Semester 1 and 2 before enrolling in Mathematics 2, in which students will work with decimals, equations, factors, fractions, integers, proportions, rates, and ratios. In addition, students will add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions, decimals, and integers. They will learn to solve one-step equations and will use proportions to solve real-world problems. Students will also develop an understanding of the coordinate plane by working with ordered pairs, linear and nonlinear functions, and patterns. Students can use videos, games, and practice problems to help emphasize key concepts. The concepts covered in Math 7 Part 1 are critical building blocks for Math 7 Part 2, as well as for future math classes.
Successful completion of Mathematics 2 Semester 1 or an equivalent course is required before students may enroll in Mathematics 2 Semester 2. Students will learn to solve two-step equations and will work with inequalities. This course will offer a solid foundation in mathematics by exploring topics that include geometric concepts and probability. The geometry discussion will include lines, rays, segments, angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, irregular figures, prisms, and cylinders. With probability, students will work with experimental and theoretical probability, as well as permutations and combinations. Students will also work with percentages, a concept from Math 7 Part 1. Students can utilize videos, online games, and practice problems to help emphasize key concepts.
