Course Description:

Middle School Mathematics for 6th – 8th Grade participants are arranged within the following collection of subjects: topics are not limited to the list and maybe updated accordingly with prior notice given to participants through email services.

Ratios and Proportional Relationships

  • Use multiple representations such as graphs, tables and equations to represent proportional relationships. By informally using the unit rate as a measurement of slope, students will recognize proportionality between quantities and distinguish proportional relationships from other types of relationships. Students will use ratios and proportionality to solve a wide variety of percent problems.

The Number System

  • Explore different representations of rational numbers, such as fractions, decimals (with finite or repeating digits) and percents. Students will extend addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to all rational numbers. Students will use rational approximations of irrational numbers to estimate their values, compare sizes and approximate their locations on a number line.

Expressions and Equations

  • Explore, analyze and solve linear equations and systems of linear equations. Graphical representations support student thinking and properties of operations are used to generate equivalent expressions and equations. Real-life and mathematical problems motivate the development of algebraic expressions and equations as problem-solving strategies. Students explore and work with exponents to make sense of the properties of exponents.

Functions

  • Define, evaluate and compare functions and use them to model relationships between quantities. Students will understand that a function is a rule that assigns each input exactly one output and that the graph of a function is the set of these ordered pairs. Students will construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities and determine the function rule that is represented by the graph.

Geometry

  • Explore how two-dimensional figures and their images are related under translations, rotations, reflections and dilations. Similarity and congruence will also be investigated. Students will identify the relationships between angles formed by intersecting lines and angles created when a transversal intersects parallel lines. Students will solve problems involving the area and circumference of a circle and investigate two-dimensional cross-sections of three-dimensional figures. Students will solve real-world problems involving surface area and volume of cubes, right prisms, cones, cylinders and spheres. Students will explore the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.

Statistics and Probability

  • Build upon previous experiences to analyze, compare and interpret data that has two variables . Students will use random sampling to generate data sets and learn about the importance of representative samples for drawing inferences. Students will investigate random processes to develop, use, and evaluate probability models. They will use lists, tables, tree diagrams and simulations to find probabilities of single and compound events. Students will use linear equations to describe bivariate data and interpret components of these mathematical models, for instance slopes and y-intercepts.

In addition to the subjects mentioned, students will apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers, use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions, analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems (several units from the 7th  or 8th grade curriculum standards have been integrated throughout the course ).

(Topics include: Number Sense, patterns, decimals, data and statistics, number patterns and fractions, integers, equations, inequalities, functions, ratios, percents, geometry, measurement and area, surface area and volume, and probability.)


Classroom Procedures/Expectations:

At the beginning of each class, students will complete a warm-up activity which will consist of review problems, vocabulary, or a homework topic. Essential question(s) are provided to engage students and focus daily lessons. All of this information MUST be kept in the student’s binder.

Students are expected to keep a binder with all completed assignments and math notes (class work, examples, definitions, etc.). 

Students are taught through online, hands-on applications, whole-group instruction, and/or individualized instruction.  Students have the opportunity to complete many math performance tasks throughout the year.  A grading rubric will be used to ensure that students are aware of the teacher’s expectations and grading criteria.


 Materials:

McDougal Littell Mathematics Course 1, 2 or 3 textbook

FTSOnline Homeschool Agenda

www.classzone.com website

Folder

Spiral notebook or composition book

Pencils

Graph paper

Students are required to purchase and bring all materials to each class. Leaving the online class session to search for forgotten items is not permitted. 


Schedule:

 Full time class sessions are for one-hour, three days per week and are usually, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Part-time participants are scheduled for forty-five minutes to one-hour, twice a week on Monday and Wednesday. See your instructor for verification of program options, schedules and book fees, inshaAllah


Classroom Expectations:

     Always respect yourself, others, and your environment.

     Use appropriate language and volume at the right time.

     Listen to and follow all instructions. Never be afraid to ask questions.

     Excellence is expected: come prepared to learn.

     Stay focused, refrain from surfing the internet and request permission to leave the room.

     (See other program rules under policies and procedures on the website.)

Consequences:

1st Warning: The first warning consist of a verbal reminder to student

2nd Warning: The second warning consist of a verbal warning and an email, a call or written correspondence explaining the infraction in detail to parent and student

3rd Warning: The third and last warning is a courtesy only. At this time the student will be given (1) detention, booted, suspended or banned from the online conference room or classroom until further action can be taken

Boot Affect Until Next Class: Once the student has been booted, suspended or banned from the room, the parent is expected to contact administration prior to the next class date, to resolve the issue.

Voice Conference (PTC) Parent/Instructor/Child: The PTC meeting inshaAllah will be beneficial to parent/student and the instructor. This will allow us to work through a goals plan for the student and focus on the child’s strengths instead of the behavior issues that may be present. A PTC can be scheduled anytime during the behavioral process.

Removal from Program: This option is a last resort for unresolved issues. The parent will be given ample time to reply. If the parent is not in agreement with the decision they can within 7 days contact administration to discuss the matter in detail inshaAllah. The student will remain in academic suspension until the matter is resolved.


Grades will be determined by the following:                           Grading scale:

Homework/Independent Practice             20%                                          A          90 - 100

Classwork/Participation                           20%                                          B          80 - 89

Quizzes                                                   25%                                          C          70 – 79

Tests/Exams                                           20%                                          F          0 – 69

Projects                                                  15%

Any participant with a grade between 0 - 69 at the end of the course will be required to repeat the course or attend summer school to possibly raise the grade to C level (70 - 79). For additional information request by email or schedule an appointment with administration.                                                                                                                                  


Homework is given daily and is due before the next scheduled online class.  Generally, homework consists of problems from the book or worksheets. Homework should be neat and in pencil for the notebook and then typed in a manner that shows your thought process when submitting for review. WORK MUST BE SHOWN FOR CREDIT.  STUDENTS WILL NOT BE GIVEN FULL CREDIT FOR A PAGE FULL OF ANSWERS.  If students are absent, they will be given two days to complete their missed assignments. This is the responsibility of the student, there will be no reminders!

No late work will be accepted in accelerated math!

A graded report will be sent home every 3 ½ weeks.  This report’s purpose is to inform you and your parents of the child’s progress and to prepare students before the 9th week assessment.

The teacher reserves the right to change or modify any section of the course syllabus at any time during the semester to accommodate the needs, abilities, and interest of the students as well as the availability of resources.
