Resource students are assigned to classes on the basis of their own choices and with recommendations of Resource teachers and parents. The Individualized Education Program (IEP) sets forth a plan of goals and objectives, which specifies accommodations and services necessary to meet the students’ needs.

Learning Recommendations: IEP with a qualification in the area of math, math placement test and teacher recommendation

General Description: This course builds on the key principles from Practical Math 3 and prepares the students for algebra. Students learn many of the critical components that are central to understanding algebraic equations. Topics include the study of number and operations (positive and negative integers, estimations, proportions, ratios, rates), algebra (variables, coefficients, equations, graphing linear equations, and translating English words to algebraic expressions, slope and intercept), geometry, measurement, data analysis and probability, problems solving, and reasoning and proof. Continued practice on computational skills, including fractions, mixed numbers and decimals in all operations, is emphasized. Concepts involving critical thinking and problem solving are taught through guided practice and application of math concepts to everyday living situations.
