Welcome to OLG’s Middle School Math Program

Summer Learning

Summer math work obligations are outlined on each grade level site.  Packet and Khan Academy work are due Wednesday, August 31st.  Students will be tested on packet skills on Friday, September 9th (8th grade) and Monday, September 12th (6th & 7th grades).


The mathematics program in Grades 6-8 uses a variety of print and online resources aligned to the Common Core Standards.  This includes the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice.


Grades 6 and 7 math courses are taught in a whole group setting and focus on the foundational pre-algebra skills necessary for 8th grade.

The two 8th-grade math courses are:

  • Algebra: This course is based on the 8th-grade and Algebra 1 common core concepts.
  • Accelerated Algebra: This course is based on the 8th-grade and Algebra 1 common core concepts and covers all topics at a faster pace with more demands for independent work, proficient basic math skills, and strong organizational skills.

*More details regarding each grade level can be found in the Syllabus link on each class page.
