**Course Offerings – Math 7**

Math 7 Overview Mathematics 7 is a challenging program for students in grade 7. This program includes all of the Virginia Standards of Learning for mathematics for both grades 7 and 8 to ensure that students who enroll in Algebra I in grade 8 have mastered all the prerequisite SOL skills. The most important task in 7th grade mathematics is to transition elementary level math to middle school math in its sophistication and content. Math 7 teachers focus on terminology, notation and the nitty-gritty content Course Offerings for 8th Grade: Math 8 Algebra 1

**Course Offerings- Math 7 Honors**

Math 7 Honors Overview Fantastic topics, lots of problem solving Topics covered in this course tend to be of material that most people may never see. Introductory concepts to higher level math courses that many college bound students need. A different curriculum than Math 7, not an extension or at a faster pace.

**Course Offerings-Math 7 Honors**

The Math 7 Honors course was created based on students who had finished the compacted math 6 curriculum and were not quite ready to take the high school level Algebra I Honors course in 7th grade. These students have mastered the material from 6th, 7th and 8th grade math. Math 7 Honors students are expected to know and use this knowledge with little to no review. Math 7 Honors lessons build on these skills and concepts in a challenging and rigorous manner.
