Math

In 7th and 8th grade students are continuing to develop their math skills and broaden their understanding in the following math domains: ratios and proportionality, number sense, geometry, statistics and probability, expressions and equations, and functions. Most students will take Math 7 in seventh grade and Math 8 in 8th grade.

MYP mathematics can be tailored to the needs of students, seeking to intrigue and motivate them to want to learn its principles. Students see authentic examples of how mathematics is useful and relevant to their lives and be encouraged to apply it to new situations. (ibo.org)


Acceleration:
  • To provide opportunities for advanced math, we also offer an accelerated pathway for middle school students. These students would take Accelerated Math 7 in 7th grade and Math 1 in 8th grade. This sequence compacts three years of math into two. Math 1 is the first year of high school math.
  • Laguna Creek H.S. has adopted the integrated sequence of courses for mathematics, which includes Integrated Math I, Math II, and Math III. They essentially cover the same standards, with the addition of a statistics domain, across the three years. Placement into the accelerated pathway is determined by multiple academic performance measures. Students who wish to enroll in Honors Science as an 8th grader must be enrolled in this pathway and must maintain a high level of success. Students not enrolled in this pathway will not be able to take Honors Science in 8th grade

Tutoring and Support:

  • Our one-of-a-kind Zero Period Peer Tutoring program services those who need additional support in math. Our tutors are enthusiastic and highly skilled in math. To become effective tutors, they are trained by two of our teachers. Each student enrolled will receive tutoring twice each week.
  • Virtual Math Tutoring:  All students receive access to our Virtual Classroom.  During scheduled classes, students can log into the system and receive online help from one of our own Eddy teachers.  Students can review the day's lesson, receive help on homework, or study for upcoming exams.

Enrichment:

  • For students that enjoy tackling interesting and challenging math problems, we have a Mathletes club. This club is open to everyone. We meet once each week to do math in a friendly and lively environment, then compete against other middle schools each term. For more information or questions, please contact us. We look forward to working together to make your child’s experience in math an enjoyable and successful one.
