In this class, students will build on strengthening their mathematical foundation.  We will continue to build on skills previously learned as well as introducing new concepts which include: Ratios and proportional relationships, The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Geometery, Stastics and Probability.  The strategy employed in class is a balanced approach of instruction while allowing abstract thought, reasoning and inquiry which will help with internalizing concepts with greater depth of understanding.

Ratios and Proportional Relationships

• Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

The Number System

• Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.

Expressions and Equations

• Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
• Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.

Geometry

• Draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them.
• Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.

Statistics and Probability

• Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.
• Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.
• Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
