MATH

The Middle School offers various classes in mathematics.  Grade Seven students are enrolled in one of the following courses:  Math or Pre-Algebra.  Grade Eight students are enrolled in Pre-Algebra or Algebra 1.

Mathematics covers various topics including Problem Solving, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Decimals, Number Theory, Fractions, Applications of Proportions and Percents, and Integers and Probabilities.  Students will also have an opportunity to practice similar problems found on the PSSA test. 

PreAlgebra covers topics including The Language of Algebra, Integers, Equations and Inequalities, Fractions, Proportion and Percent, Statistics and Graphs, Probability, and Applying Algebra to Geometry.  Students will also be given practice problems relating to the PSSA. 

Algebra attempts to develop an appreciation for the usefulness of Algebra in solving applied problems, and for Algebra as a logical extension of earlier mathematical learnings.  Students are encouraged to develop disciplined patterns of thought, and to perceive the relationship of Algebra to other branches of mathematics.
