Description:  The goal of this course is to provide students with a foundation of math skills traditionally considered essential for success in higher level math courses.  Some of the topics include:  operations, integers, equations, and measurement.  Strands of geometry, algebra, and data displays are also presented throughout the course.  Students engage in problem-solving situations that require application of skills to make real-life connections to learned concepts.  Students learn calculator skills and work with decimal operations, fraction operations, number patterns, exponents, ratios, proportions, and percentages, as well as area, volume, and probability.  Students work at an appropriate pace for their learning levels, as the content is adapted to the individual needs of each student.  Consideration for enrollment in this course is based on the specific needs addressed in an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).  The class meets in a small group setting with modified pacing and instruction in order to ensure mastery of the topics covered.
