Mathematics

By placing us in time and space, God has limited us to the finite and measurable and set Himself apart. We see order in every area. The language and skills of mathematics build our understanding of this order, its patterns, precision and constancy.

Grade 6

Prentice Hall Mathematics: Course 1, Pearson Prentice Hall, c. 2004.
This course builds upon the framework established in the primary years, completing the developments of standard algorithms for computation; especially focusing on operations with fractions and decimals. The scope now broadens to introduce the foundational concepts in the areas of integers, algebra, geometry, and statistics.

Grade 7

Prentice Hall Mathematics: Course 2, Pearson Prentice Hall, c. 2004.
This course uses the concepts of the previous course to develop an understanding of real world mathematical concepts. Students develop proportional and algebraic thinking and expand their knowledge of geometry, data analysis, probability and statistics.

Grade 8

Prentice Hall Mathematics: Course 3, Pearson Prentice Hall, c. 2004.
This course is designed to establish a strong foundation of algebraic and geometric concepts for the higher level courses that follow in high school. Extensive time is spent on solving multi-step equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations, exploring and using geometric formulas, and more complex word problems.

Grade 8 Advanced–Algebra 1
Algebra, Prentice Hall, c.2001
Patterns and Geometric Figures, Exploring Data, Graphs, Algebraic Expressions, Real Numbers, Equations and Inequalities, Matrices, Properties of Geometric Figures, Products and Polynomials, Rational and Irrational Numbers, Variation and Graphs, Functions and Relations.
