Parents -

Hi! A M3S (Millhopper Montessori Middle School) parent asked a very good question about the difference between the current pre-algebra math course and the new math courses 1,2, & 3.

I wanted to share our response with the 6th & 7th grade parents.

Course 3 is the last course in the series that is considered “pre algebra”.  Math courses have been revised so that pre algebra is incorporated into Course 1, 2 & 3.  By the end of Course 3, MMS students will have completed all the requirements for “pre algebra” and will be ready to take Algebra I by the ninth grade year.

 There isn’t much difference from the current Pre-Algebra class.  We’re using the same publisher and textbook series as the pre-algebra book we currently have 1. because we like the series; good teaching methodology, structure, and it has a good reputation 2. to keep the content consistent; we wanted to make sure we weren’t skipping/dropping necessary concepts. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or set a time when we can sit down and talk about your child’s LRCO.
