Description:  The goal of this course is to build on concepts taught in sixth (6th) grade to develop an understanding of integers and their operations, and apply those learned skills to evaluate expressions as well as solve equations and inequalities.  In addition, students cover basic geometry, data analysis, and probability.  Work with factors, fractions, exponents, ratios, proportions, and percentages also take place.  Within each unit, problem-solving and making real‐life connections to learned concepts are emphasized.  Consideration for enrollment in this course is based on the specific needs addressed in an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).  Students work at an appropriate pace for their learning levels.  The class meets in a small group setting, with modified pacing and instruction, in order to ensure mastery of the topics covered.
