### Advanced Math, Grade 6

The sixth grade math concepts in this course are taught at a more rigorous pace. Focuses on applying addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of decimals and integers to solve problems and equations; explores, uses, and represents numbers in a variety of equivalent forms, and applies addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions; requires solving problems involving direct proportional relationships involving numbers, geometry, and measurement; provides for use of statistical measures and probability to describe data; and requires the explores the use of geometric properties, relationships, and formulas to model and analyze.

*Prerequisite: End-of-year average of 94 or higher in Grade 5 math, a 95 or higher on Total Math subscore from Grade 5 Iowa Test (or comparable standardized test), or TAKS Commended in Grade 5 Math) and a 92 or higher on the end-of-year Incarnate Word Academy Middle Level’s Math Assessment. *

### Algebra I, Grade 7

** **Develops proficiency with mathematical skills; expands understanding and application of mathematical concepts; integrates field properties of real numbers and properties of equality as a basis for developing algebraic concepts; promotes intuition and deductive reasoning combined with algebraic concepts to perform operations with variables, polynomials, linear equations, and inequalities in one and two variables, rational expressions, radicals, and quadratic equations.* One (1) high school credit is earned upon successful completion of the course.*

*Prerequisite: End-of-year average of 94.0 or higher in Grade 6 math, 94.0 or higher on the Total Math subtest of the Iowa Test (or comparable standardized test), or TAKS Commended in Math for Grade 6 and a 90 or higher on the end-of-year Incarnate Word Academy Middle Level’s Math Assessment. *
