Students learn to reflect on, self-assess, and revise homework. They also take further ownership of their learning and develop study skills through the completion of homework practice that relates to and extends their in-class explorations.
Beyond a foundational 6th grade course, Middle School math courses are subject-based (not grade-level based). The four courses taught in Middle School are 6th Grade Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry.
By the end of eighth grade, students can apply the concepts they’ve learned to problem solving and projects. Students can use the language of mathematics in reading, writing, and discussion to further develop their understanding. They can reach beyond memorized rules or strategies to fully comprehend mathematical reasoning.
