Course Description:

Are you and your middle school student not feeling ready to tackle pre-algebra this year?  Are you wanting to cement foundations in their mind before moving to that next step?  This General Middle School Math is for you.  We will be brushing up on concepts that will help them prepare to enter pre-algebra.  These topics and suggestions come from our Algebra math teacher at NHC for areas that she feels would be helpful for students to have a better grip on when they enter her algebra classes.

We will use the text “Principles of Mathematics, Jr. High Year 1”  Student edition.  From the product’s description:

The Principles of Mathematics curriculum integrates a biblical worldview with mathematics! Year 1 of a 2-year course (year 2 sold-separately), this text is designed to give students an academic and spiritual mathematical foundation through building thinking and problem-solving skills while also teaching them how a biblical worldview affects their approach to mathematical concepts. They’ll learn how math can be seen as a way of exploring and describing consistencies God created and sustains and will see how math is not a neutral subject but rather reveals the glory of God.

Each student will need the text found here: https://www.christianbook.com/principles-of-mathematics-student-book/katherine-loop/9780890518755/pd/518755?event=Homeschool|1007553  and a 1 1/2 inch binder, as well as basic supplies of pencil and paper.

Upon registration a suppy fee of $25 and a registration fee (to hold your place in the class) is required.  The registration fee will then be applied to your tuition amount on the first day of class.

If you have a student with special needs, please contact the teacher directly to discuss.
