Introduction to Middle School Math

Introduction to Middle School Math solidifies the foundational concepts of mathematical operations involving whole numbers and expands understanding of integers, fractions, decimals, measurements, and basic geometry. Percent, ratios, and basic statistics are introduced.

This is a year-long course taught in two semesters and is ideal for students ages 11-13 who are in 6th or 7th grade.

This course offers a unique approach to online instruction. It combines a dynamic software product (MathXL for School), with the personal attention of an instructor and 1.5 hours a week of live, interactive instruction. As students complete homework assignments, they find out immediately if their answers are correct, have access to detailed sample solutions when needed, are provided with additional practice problems, and may easily contact the instructor with comments or questions. Short video clips are also provided for most topics to reinforce in-class instruction. Quiz and test problems are displayed online; students work out each problem on paper for submission to the instructor for partial credit. Assignments, due dates, grades, and cumulative grade averages are easily available for students and parents. This software product is currently used in middle schools, high schools, and nearly every college in America.

Please note: This course was previously titled “Basic Math” but has been renamed and will now utilize a Pre-Algebra textbook. The course objectives remain the same. Only the sections of the textbook that pertain to the Basic Math concepts are covered. The same text will be used for the CLRC Pre-Algebra course which will cover the latter sections of each chapter.

An additional $35 non-refundable deposit is required for the Math software program (per year, not per semester).
