**Grade 6 **

In this Grade 6 Advanced Mathematics course, instructional time should focus on six critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking; (5) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; and (6) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations.

**Grade 6 or 7 **

In this Grade 7 Advanced Mathematics course, instructional time should focus on five critical area: (1) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; (2) drawing inferences about populations based on samples; (3) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (4) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; and (5) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.

**Grade 7 or 8 **

**High School Credit: 1 Credit**

**Course Weight: 4.5 **

*Prerequisite(s): FSA Math Level 4 or Higher. An “A-B” average in M/J Math 2 Advanced, Math Prealgebra or M/J Math 3 Advanced is highly recommended for highest potential for academic success.*

This course gives a rigorous in-depth study of algebra and algebraic concepts and processes that can be used to solve a variety of real-world mathematical problems. Topics will include the language of algebra, solving equations with one and two variables, polynomials, quadratics, exponents, statistics, factoring functions, and graphing. At the completion of this course, all students will take the state mandated EOC exam which counts 30% of the student’s final grade. Passing the Algebra 1 EOC is required for graduation.

**Grade 8 **

**High School Credit: 1 Credit **

**Course Weight: 4.5 **

**State EOC Required**

**Prerequisite(s): “A, B or C+” in Algebra 1 Honors, FSA Algebra 1 EOC Level 4 or Higher. *If a student earned a "C" in Algebra 1 Honors, it is recommended that the student retake the course for grade forgiveness with Okaloosa Online or in the algebra honors class provided at the school in order to raise the student's High School GPA.**

This course gives a rigorous in-depth study of geometry with emphasis on methods of proof and the formal language of mathematics. Geometry Honors also models the logic of business analysis through mathematics to ready the business leaders of tomorrow. Instruction is rapidly paced for the most advanced math student. At the completion of this course, all students will take the state mandated EOC exam which counts 30% of the student’s final grade.
