Modeling Real Life 6-8

Modeling Real Life 6-8

The Big Ideas Math: Modeling Real Life program uses a Universal Design for Learning to create an engaging and innovative program that uses hands-on activities and scaffolded instruction. The instructional design guides students through concepts from surface-level to deep-level learning and allows them to transfer these skills to new concepts in a complete and comprehensive way. This allows for balanced lessons with built-in differentiation, as well as RTI support, that appeals to students and teachers alike.

The Big Ideas Math: Modeling Real Life series comes with two options of accelerating students, the Advanced Pathway and the Compacted Pathway. Students in either pathway cover all the middle school content in two years, allowing them to reach Algebra 1 in eighth grade and advanced mathematics in high school.

High School Mathematics

Savvas Realize: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 teaches for understanding by incorporating an interwoven strand of thinking and reasoning into problem solving. This connects the math that students learn, from the first lesson to the last. By focusing on thinking, reasoning, and problem solving, students will become more prepared for success in school, in their careers, and in life.  Students have the option to enroll in honors level courses for advanced concept instruction and weighted GPA in Geometry and Algebra 2.

Upper-Level Mathematics

Precalculus Textbooks
Precalculus (high school)

The Precalculus course includes trigonometry content.  Students who Precalculus can take this course can choose concurrent enrollment, which allows them to earn college math credits while in high school.
