Operations and Graphing
Students focus on the fundamentals of pre-algebra. Topics like integers, order of operations, variables, graphing, and analyzing data are explored.
Students explore what integers are and how we use them in our everyday life. The concept of a "Zero Pair" is introduced.
Students use their knowledge of integers to explore order and value.
Order of Operations
Students learn about PEDMAS, often refereed to as BEDMAS, the order in which you complete multi-step mathematical expressions and equations.
Writing and Simplifying Expressions
Students learn about the basics of pre-algebra: understanding words problems, substituting and simplifying equations, and data tables.
Preservation of Equality: Addition and Subtraction
Students explore how to balance addition and subtraction based equations using preservation of equality, the methodology and why it works.
Preservation of Equality: Multiplication and Division
Students further explore preservation of equality, looking into how to balance multiplication and division equations.
Table of Values
Students learn how to use a data table or a table of values to solve a series of algebraic expressions.
Students explore ordered pairs (graphing points) and how they are used in a Cartesian plane to plot graphs or figures.
Students learn how to use ordered pairs to create patterns and figures on a Cartesian plane.
Students learn how to measure the distance between two order pairs on a single axis.
Students learn how to plot data to create a line graph, learning about the importance of the axes, scaling, and labeling.
Students are hire by a company to create a new board game using Cartesian planes, Cartesian Battleships.
