Extended and Accelerated Math Criteria in Middle School
Options are available in middle school for students to extend and accelerate their learning of mathematics. In grade 6, Math 6EX extends grade 6 content using rigorous tasks and applications. In grade 7, Transitional Algebra accelerates beyond grade-level content. Throughout this course, students are taught a combination of grade 7 and grade 8 standards in preparation for Honors Algebra 1 in grade 8. Honors Algebra 1 in grade 8 is a credit-bearing, high school course that is taught with the same expectations and rigor as the high school version. This course also includes additional prerequisite concepts that are traditionally taught in grade 8.
Enrollment in extended and accelerated middle school courses are based on student performance data including course grades and NWEA MAP Growth Assessment.
Descriptions of courses can be found in the course catalog for the current school year.
Students in middle school utilize a variety of resources specific to their math course.
Math 180 is a comprehensive intervention program for targeted students in grades 6-8. Students selected to participate are provided with directed math intervention that includes teacher-guided instruction as well as computer-based modules. Students enrolled in Math 180 Course 1 and Course 2 will receive their intervention outside of their math block as one of their scheduled special classes for the entire school year. Students enrolled in Math 180 can access their accounts here.
Students in grades 6-8 have access to ALEKS, an artificially intelligent learning and assessment platform that identifies students’ knowledge of a subject and provides instruction based on topics students are ready to learn. ALEKS adapts based on student performance and tailors instruction based on students’ assessed needs. ALEKS is accessed through students’ Clever account.
Students in grades 6-8 have access to DeltaMath, an online platform utilized by teachers to help support students' mastery of content through practice, remediation, complete solutions, and video assistance. DeltaMath is accessed through students' Clever account.
