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 2 and prepares the students for pre-algebra. Students begin to develop a more complete understanding of the number system and higher mathematics. Topics include the study of rational numbers (fractions, decimals, and percents), geometry, measurement, and statistics (analyzing data, working with graphs). 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.

Equipment to be provided by Student: None
