## Math

**1ST GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 1 the student learns numbers in symbol and name from zero to ten, counting from zero to one hundred, and simple addition and subtraction.

**2ND GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 2 the student learns to add and subtract two- and three-digit numbers; relate multiplication to addition; count by twos, fives, and tens; identify odd and even numbers; carry and borrow; count by very large numbers; tell time; and recognize and construct geometric shapes.

**3RD GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 3 the student expands his basic addition, subtraction, and multiplication skills, learns Roman numerals, and is introduced to money values and measurements of weight, liquid, and length.

**4TH GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 4 the student advances in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, solves word problems, and gains an understanding of the basic concept of sets, number patterns, measurements, Roman numerals, and money.

**5TH GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 5 there is ongoing review both of previous concepts and of those concepts introduced in Grade 5. Some concepts covered are division with two-digit divisors; multiplication of three-digit numbers; addition, subtraction, and multiplication of fractions; decimals through thousandths’ place; use of key words in solving word problems; English and metric measurements; and addition, subtraction, and multiplication of dollars and cents.

**6TH GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 6 the student engages in a comprehensive review of basic math concepts; completes detailed examples in interactive instruction; expands knowledge of fractions and decimals; studies the relationship between fractions, decimals, and percents; builds thinking, reasoning, and problem-solving skills; and develops skills in prealgebra and geometry.

Students are actively involved, whether learning new concepts or practicing applications.

Concepts are presented logically and completely, allowing students to achieve mastery.

**7TH GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 7 the student . . .

• Reads, writes, and works with whole and mixed numbers, integers, and common fractions

• Learns the proper mathematical vocabulary—dividend, multiplicand, product, simplify, minuend, quotient, numerator, and denominator; how to change fractions and decimals to percent; how to find the number when a percent is known

• Is introduced to business and consumer arithmetic—profit and loss, commission, discounts, bills and receipts, and invoices with discounts

• Discovers business methods needed to function at home—keeping cash and household accounts, budgets, insurance, and the reading of gas and electric meters

• Learns about banking—savings and checking accounts, deposits, interest, and loans

**8TH GRADE LEVEL:** In Grade 8 the student achieves mastery in . . .

• Using formulas

• Solving equations

• Finding volume and surface areas of solid figures—prisms, cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres

• Basic geometry and geometric vocabulary—points, find height

• Tables and graphs—their preparation and use

• Use of Pythagorean Theorem—using right triangles to find height and distance, finding hypotenuse of a right triangle

• Square roots

• Use of positive and negative numbers

Application of learned knowledge comes through a more advanced study of banking, tax investments, mortgages, real estate (land and buildings), stocks and bonds, federal and sales taxes, and insurance (premiums and policies).

**9TH GRADE LEVEL – Algebra I:** Basic algebraic concepts are introduced in a carefully structured way so as to make the learning material understandable. This curriculum includes principles for logically solving, transposing, and canceling algebraic equations.

**The student works with:**

• Monomial and polynomial expressions

• Algebraic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division

• Factoring, quadratic equations, positive and negative numbers, averages, percents, interest, ratios, and proportions

**10TH GRADE LEVEL – Geometry:** How were the ancient Greeks able to calculate the circumference of the Earth over two thousand years ago? With geometry. How many teens can logically come up with the answers to the problems they face from day to day? This course:

• Develops the deductive reasoning powers of students

• Reviews previously learned material

• Introduces new concepts

The student learns:

• Properties and theorems and how to use them for solving problems •To reason logically and systematically

**Geometry DVDs**

11TH GRADE LEVEL – Algebra II: This advanced study in algebra includes:

• Parabolas, hyperbolas, permutations, logarithms, and matrices

Students learn to operate with:

• Radicals, fractions, and equations

• Arithmetic and geometric sequences

The approach is practical, enabling the student to use his reasoning abilities. The program effectively equips your student with necessary knowledge to excel in the real world.

**Algebra II DVDs**

**12TH GRADE LEVEL – Trigonometry:** The A.C.E. Trigonometry course is a six-PACE, interactive learning experience for the student. Through the use of a graphing calculator, the student is able to solve realistic problems about our universe.

**12TH GRADE LEVEL – PhysicS:** The basics of physics are practical, interesting, and understandable in this completely self-contained course.

Full of illustrations and applications, it covers:

• Measurements and mathematics

• Radiation and nuclear energy

• Force and motion

• Electrochemistry

• Momentum and energy

• Magnetism and electrical circuits

• States of matter

• Light and electricity

• Gas laws

• Optics and optical instruments

• Heat and kinetic theory

• Wave motion and sound

Each PACE includes a reusable Text Pac and a consumable Activity Pac.Prerequisites: Algebra I andPhysical Science
