The purpose of 7th grade math is to provide students with opportunities to solve problems using mathematical concepts. The emphasis is on basic to pre-algebraic concepts through the use of reasoning, computational and construction skills. This will prepare the students for 8th grade and further use of math in their careers.
The purpose of 8th grade math is to review computational skills and develop algebraic and geometric concepts. An emphasis will be placed on transferring real life applications into mathematical concepts through reasoning as independent problem solvers.
