McEwen Junior High Mathematics Department

 

   The McEwen Junior High Mathematics Department has an extensive curriculum designed to meet individual needs. Placement is possible into different levels of courses in the 7th and 8th grade.

   Our goal is to place a student into a course where the student will be challenged and successful. Acceleration of a student into a course for which the student is not prepared leads to future difficulties in mathematics courses due to the sequential nature of the content and the necessary accumulation of knowledge, understanding, skills, and disposition to learn. Although effort is an important component for success, it cannot compensate for deficiencies in conceptual understanding or skill development from previous courses.

Mathematics Courses

6th Grade Mathematics

 
 

 

 

  Mrs. Heather Nix                                                      2009 - 2010   6th Grade Standards          

 

The sixth grade math course focuses on the basic building blocks for higher level mathematics. Students will learn to identify numbers and operations, represent order, compare numbers, and estimate. Algebra is used to analyze and introduce symbols to generalize patterns, recognize properties of operations and analyze change in various situations. Students are introduced to geometric concepts and taught to analyze and describe the characteristics and properties of 2- and 3- dimensional shapes, locate and specify points on a grid, and use geometric concepts such as symmetry and transformations. Students learn to determine time, length, perimeter, area, weight, capacity, and temperature. Students collect, organize, analyze, interpret and display data in tables and graphs and determine the probabilities of outcomes in simple experiments. All concepts are taught with an emphasis on solving real-world problems.

 

7th Grade Mathematics

 
 

 

  

  Mrs. Kacy Littleton                                                    2009 - 2010   7th Grade Standards

 

With an emphasis paced on understanding in order to increase their problem-solving abilities, students develop their skills in working with fractions, decimals, percentages, measurement ratio and proportion, area, and volume. They study probability, the real number system, equations, and the coordinate plane.

 

8th Grade Mathematics

 
 

 

 

  Mrs. Tammy Parrish

                         8th Grade Pre-Algebra                                                2009 - 2010   8th Grade Standards

Builds upon the essential skills of arithmetic as they apply to algebra. Real numbers and linear equations, linear inequalities, factoring, fractions, graphing and some elements of geometry are stressed.

 

                         8th Grade Algebra I                                                    2009 - 2010   Algebra I Standards

This course is the foundation for high school mathematics courses. It is the bridge from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. Topics include simplifying expressions, evaluating and solving equations and inequalities, and graphing linear and quadratic functions and relations. Real world applications are presented within the course content and a function's approach is emphasized.
