The sixth grade program uses the Saxon Course 1 text. This program is both sequential and incremental in developing math concepts. Major strands include: relating math to real life situations; performing basic operations with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and integers; working with open equations; using estimation and mental math skills; developing math terminology and introducing algebraic and geometry concepts.
The seventh and eighth grade programs use the Glencoe Algebra 1 and Algebra 1 (2012) texts. The series is designed to prepare the students for middle school school mathematics. Major strands include: reviewing and reinforcing concepts taught in prior grades; translating word problems into equations; becoming familiar with calculator usage; developing algebraic concepts and methods; simplifying polynomials; identifying and using mathematical properties; graphing equations on the coordinate plane and simplifying expressions and equations.
