Glencoe Middle School Math 2, Part Two

With Emily Nardozzi, MEd

Middle School Math 2 covers many of the same topics as Middle School Math 1, but each topic is discussed more in depth and with more application. We will still be doing a lot of work with fractions, decimals, integers, data analysis, algebraic expressions and equations, functions and inequalities, using formulas, and surface area and volume. We will add to this list ratios and proportions and more applications of fractions and percentages. This course is designed to prepare students for Pre-Algebra.
