7/8 Math Overview: The Junior High students develop a strong foundation in the concepts of algebra and geometry, moving them from elementary to high school mathematics. Using real life situations to present mathematical concepts, enables the students to see the importance of Math in their everyday lives. Hands-on activities lead students from concrete concepts to the abstract. Students explore the patterns in Math as problem solving tools and explore using a variety of methods to arrive at a single solution to a given problem.

While the textbook is the main resource material for the students, the course of study is based on the Common Core State Standards. The following link enables you to view the document.

All Junior High Math students will experience the format of the New York State test as well as the wording of the questions. Being familiar with the test format will lead to less "test anxiety" when taking the assessment in April of eighth grade.
