Math 7 with Pre-Algebra - Kolbe Academy

Math 7 with Pre-Algebra

Seventh Grade Math provides the student with an introduction to algebra, on a level to be used before Algebra 1 or before a pre-Algebra course. 

If a student completes this course with ease, he is ready to go onto Algebra 1.  Topics covered include prime and composite numbers, ratios, graphs, exponents, square roots, scientific notation, circumference, pi, mean, median, mode, range, and probability.

Students taking this course are expected to complete daily assignments, periodic exams and quizzes.  

Assignment due-dates and grades are established by the parent.  Optionally, a student may be enrolled in the Self-Paced Plus© grading assistance program to receive grading assistance from a Kolbe Academy faculty or staff member on designated assignments in the course.  In this case, parents will still submit final grades to Kolbe for the course, but may choose to incorporate the graded assignments into the student’s overall grade or use the Kolbe-graded assignments to assist in arriving at the student’s final grade.
