Course Description:

The Pre-Algebra curriculum includes the same content as the Grade 8 Mathematics Standards of Learning (SOLs) set by the State of Virginia and in some cases goes beyond state standards. Students in this course will take the 8th Grade SOL exam in the spring. The objectives are based on the 2016 adopted standards.
Pre-AP Algebra 1 is designed for those students who have completed the Middle School Extended Mathematics curriculum prior to 8th grade or completed 8th grade Pre-algebra with a “B” or better. Pre-AP Algebra I students are expected to master all of the Algebra I objectives as well as some of the Algebra II objectives. Students taking this course are expected to continue their studies with an Advanced Geometry course followed by Algebra II/Trigonometry. Students will use algebra as a tool for representing and solving a variety of practical problems. This course has an associated Standards of Learning (SOL) test. Students will participate in these tests only when they have not yet earned sufficient credit for graduation and/or satisfied federal testing requirements.
Pre-AP Geometry includes emphasis on two- and three-dimensional reasoning skills, coordinate and transformational geometry, and the use of geometric models to solve problems. Students will use a variety of applications and problem-solving techniques including algebraic skills. The intent of this course is to provide students with many opportunities to explore, conjecture, reason logically, formulate and solve problems, and communicate mathematically. This course has an associated Standards of Learning (SOL) test. Students will participate in these tests only when they have not yet earned sufficient credit for graduation and/or satisfied federal testing requirements.
