7th Grade Mathematics Honors (1.0) (7121-semester 1, 7121B-semester 2)
In 7th Grade Mathematics Honors students will focus on developing an understanding of and applying proportional relationships; developing an understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and drawing inferences about populations based on samples. The Honors course includes extra depth and additional topics such as codes, patterns, number bases, and number systems.

8th Grade Mathematics Honors (1.0) (8130A-semester 1, 8130B-semester2)
Prerequisite: 7th Grade Mathematics; In 8th Grade Mathematics Honors students will focus on formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; and analyzing two- and three dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem. The Honors course includes extra depth and additional topics such as 3-D graphing and graph theory, fair division and apportionment, sets, and voting theory.

Secondary Math I Honors (9130 – semester 1, 9130B – semester 2)
The fundamental purpose of Mathematics I Honors (9th grade level math) is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas, organized into units, deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships, in part by contrasting them with exponential phenomena, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Mathematics 1 Honors uses properties and theorems involving congruent figures to deepen and extend understanding of geometric knowledge from prior grades. The final unit in the course ties together the algebraic and geometric ideas studied. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. Secondary Math I Honors covers additional concepts in more depth and at a faster pace then the Secondary Math I course.
