Mathematics 700 Fundamentals
Mathematics 700 Fundamentals is designed to prepare junior-high students for Pre-algebra. This course focuses on strengthening needed skills in problem solving, number sense, and proportional reasoning. It also introduces students to integers, equations, and geometric concepts. Students will begin to see the "big picture" of mathematics and learn how numeric, algebraic, and geometric concepts are woven together to build a foundation for higher mathematical thinking.
- Integers: Students will learn how to locate, add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers to solve word problems, as well as compare integers using absolute value and the order of operation.
- Fractions: Students will understand how fractions can be written into other forms without changing their value, and how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions.
- Decimals: Students will explore how to rewrite fractions as decimals, and how to use decimals to solve real-world problems.
- Patterns and Equations: Students will learn how to translate words into equations and use them to solve number patterns.
- Ratios and Proportions: Students will explore how to use ratios to compare numbers, solve proportions, and convert between percent’s, decimals, and fractions.
- Probability and Graphing: Students will be able to determine the probability of an event, and if they are independent or dependent events, as well as create a graph of an equation
- Data Analysis: Students will learn how to interpret statistics using stem-and-leaf plots, histograms, and other graphical means.
- Geometry: Students will explore how points, lines, and planes interact and how to solve equations using their information.
- Measurement and Area: Students will learn about finding perimeters and areas of different polygons, and using the Pythagorean theorem to solve problems.
- Surface Area and Volume: Students will explore three-dimensional figures and how to find their surface area, volume of them.
