Welcome to OLG’s Middle School Math Program
Summer math work obligations are expected to be completed in full by Thursday, September 2nd.
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.
