Mathematics

JAIS Middle School Mathematics
The mathematics program is based on a combination of the common Core and AERO standards. Our math program focuses on the concepts and skills that provide the students with connected pieces of facts and ideas that the student can use to cope with the demands that will follow them as they move up the ladder in mathematics.

Real-life problem solving is also a curricular focus and, in keeping with our school-wide technology efforts, technology is used to support student learning by extending student thinking and challenging student application of new skills.

Sixth grade math covers arithmetic, numeracy, geometry and problem solving. Seventh grade topics include algebraic expressions, coordinate plane graphing, real numbers, probability, geometry, graphing and interpreting data. Eighth grade covers algebraic expressions and equations, functions, and statistical measurement.
