Fixed-Pace Course


Middle School Mathematics 2



This course is designed to prepare students for the formal study of Algebra and Geometry in a Middle and Upper School environment. Students will develop a solid foundation of fluency with rational numbers and proportional relationships. Major areas of study include simple equations, fractions, decimals, inequalities, graphs and functions, percent, probabilities, and an introduction to geometry and right triangles. Students will explore these subjects with reference to concrete, real-world problems, analyzing situations verbally, numerically, graphically, and symbolically. On successful completion of Pre-Algebra, a student will be prepared to enroll in Algebra 1.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
