# Middle School Math 2 Accelerated (Combines grade 7 & 8 math)

1 Credit
36 Weeks
Open

Note: MS Math 2 Accelerated combines the concepts and skills addressed in MS Math 2 and MS Pre-Algebra. Students completing this course will take Algebra 1 as their next math course. This course is for those wanting to accelerate in mathematics and is, therefore, more challenging than the standard MS Math 2 or MS Pre-Algebra.

Description: Have you ever wondered, “When will I use this in real life?” Grade 7 Accelerated Mathematics has great news! There are hundreds of ways that math is used in the real world, and this course is designed to help you think critically as you explore a few of those applications. With hands-on activities and interactive Lessons, students will have the opportunity to apply what they learn in relevant ways. Key foundational concepts like exponent laws, scientific notation, and the Pythagorean Theorem will help prepare students for the next level of learning.

### Major Topics and Concepts

Instructional time for Grade 7 Accelerated Mathematics will emphasize six areas:

• Representing numbers in scientific notation and extending the set of numbers to the system of real numbers, which includes irrational numbers
• Generate equivalent numeric and algebraic expressions including using the Laws of Exponents
• Creating and reasoning about linear relationships, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation
solving linear equations, inequalities, and systems of linear equations
• Developing an understanding of the concept of a function
• Analyzing two-dimensional figures, particularly triangles, using distance, angle, and applying the Pythagorean Theorem
