The Mathematics Department at The Grove School strives to make learning math accessible to all students, with an emphasis on developing skills that can be transferred through every level. It is the goal of this department to help students reach and/or exceed their potential. To accomplish this, we provide students with a general education curriculum guided by Common Core State Standards and scaffold assignments to meet individual needs. At all levels, students develop an understanding of the basic processes of mathematics and learn to apply these processes through challenging structure and course work.
This course is designed to prepare the student for Algebra. It will be necessary to demonstrate a mastery of most computational skills with rational numbers while challenging and strengthening problem solving skills required to be successful in Algebra. An emphasis is placed on equation solving and applications.
