## Course II

Course II will prepare the student for the Pre- Algebra course. Students will build on their knowledge of mental math and estimation strategies as they compute with decimals, fractions, integers, and metric units. They will use algebraic properties and number sense to compare, order, and compute with rational numbers. Order of operations will be extended to simplify expressions with exponents.

They will solve simple one-step equations with all rational numbers. Ratio, proportion, and percent are applied to real-world problems. They will extend their work in 2-dimensional geometry by learning properties of lines, angles, and polygons, and by finding area and perimeter of polygons. The 3-dimensional geometry will include recognizing solid shapes and their parts, knowing their properties, and finding surface area and volume. The data analysis and probability units will now include more analysis of statistics, charts, and graphs. Throughout the course, technology, interdisciplinary activities, and global perspectives will be integrated.

Unit 1 Two-Dimensional Geometry (4 weeks)

Unit 2 Decimals, Equations, and the Metric System (4 weeks)

Unit 3 Number Theory, Fractions, and Customary Measurement (6 weeks)

Unit 4 Two-Dimensional Geometry(Area and Perimeter) (3 weeks)

Unit 5 Integers, Coordinate Planes, and Transformations (3 weeks)

Unit 6 Ratio, Proportions, and Probability (4 weeks)

Unit 7 Percents (4 weeks)

Unit 8 Data Analysis (3 weeks)

Unit 9 Three-Dimensional Geometry (2 weeks)
