400 MATH 7
This course begins with a review of basic math skills: operations with whole numbers, decimals, fractions and percents. Other topics covered include geometry, ratios, rates, and proportions; and probability, statistics, and data analysis. Algebra is introduced and covers operations with integers and solving linear equations. Students also learn different strategies for solving real-world mathematics applications.
Prerequisite: 75% on the math placement test. This course requires strong study habits and the ability to work independently.
402 HONORS MATH 7: PRE-ALGEBRA
This course serves as a bridge between arithmetic and algebra. Students will review fractions, decimals, and percents while gaining new skills with linear equations, proportions, and inequalities. This course covers integer operations, statistics, graphing, probability, and geometry. This course concludes with the study of harder equations, and operations with radicals, exponents, and polynomials (including factoring).
Prerequisites: 90% on the math placement test. This course requires students be highly motivated and able to work independently.
