In Sixth Grade
Sixth grade students added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided integers, multiplied and divided positive rational numbers, and applied qualitative and quantitative reasoning to rates and ratios. Students also solved problems related to percents that involved parts of a whole and a whole, represented a given situation using y = kx or y = x + b, and modeled and solved one-variable, one-step equations and inequalities.
In Seventh Grade
Seventh grade students will apply and extend understandings of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve problems that involve rational numbers, represent constant rates of change in various forms, solve multi-step problems involving rates, ratios, and percents, represent linear relationships in various forms, and model and solve one-variable, one-step equations and inequalities.
In Eighth Grade
Students in eighth grade will graph proportional relationships, interpret the unit rate as the slope, use data from a table or graph to determine the slope, identify functions, write an equation in the form y = mx + b, and model and solve one-variable equations on both sides of the equal sign using rational number coefficients and constants.
