Aligning with the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, each grade will cover number sense and theory. Building upon knowledge acquired the previous year. Decimals, fractions, integers, rational and irrational numbers will be covered in depth including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This basic knowledge will be applied to algebraic equations in the form of decimal and fraction coefficients.
Each year we will cover Data and Statistics, Probability and Logic. Geometry topics will include measurement and two- and three-dimensional concepts such as area, surface area and volume. Real-life applications such as ratio, proportion and percents will also be taught. Algebraic concepts will be covered ranging from solving simple equations to multi-step equations and will continue toward graphing linear, quadratic, and cubic equations. These concepts will lead to functions and relations including linear, quadratic, absolute value, radical and step functions.
All aspects of inequalities will be taught including solving and graphing both linear and nonlinear inequalities. Mastering operations with polynomials will lead into solving rational expressions and equations. Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities will be covered in both two and three space.
