Building upon the success of a long-established program, K12 Math balances mastery of fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem-solving. Our curriculum emphasizes an active, multi-sensory approach to ensure that students understand the concrete realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Online games and animations motivate students and help illustrate concepts, while challenge problems help develop critical thinking skills. From helping younger students make the link between the concrete and the abstract to introducing older students to Algebra, our curriculum provides a thorough mathematic grounding.
In the Summit Math 6 course, students deepen their understanding of multiplication and division of fractions to apply their knowledge to divide fractions by fractions, with an additional focus on increasing efficiency and fluency. Students gain a foundation in the concepts of ratio and rate as an extension of their work with whole number multiplication and division, and in preparation for work with proportional relationships in Grade 7. Students also make connections among area, volume, and surface area, and continue to lay the groundwork for deep algebraic understanding by interpreting and using expressions and equations.
In the Summit Math 7 course, students focus on real-word scenarios and mathematical problems involving algebraic expressions and linear equations and begin to apply their understanding of rational numbers with increased complexity. The course lays the foundation for exploring concepts of angle, similarity and congruence, more formally addressed in Grade 8, as students work with scale drawings and construct and analyze relationships among geometric figures. Students also develop and apply understandings of proportional relationships.
Grade 8 mathematics course prepares students for more advanced study in algebra as students solve linear equations and systems of equations, work with radical and integer exponents, gain conceptual understanding of functions, and use functions to model quantitative relationships. To prepare students for more advanced study in geometry, the course emphasizes the Pythagorean theorem and a deepening exploration of similarity and congruence.
The Summit Algebra 1 course is intended to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. Because it is built to follow revised middle school math courses, the course covers slightly different ground than previous versions of algebra. In this course, students deepen their understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other. Students also apply linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. The course also covers analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions.

Pre-calculus weaves together concepts of algebra and geometry into a preparatory course for calculus. The course focuses on the mastery of critical skills and exposure to new skills necessary for success in subsequent math courses. Topics include quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, radical, polynomial, and rational functions; matrices; and conic sections in the first semester. The second semester covers an introduction to infinite series, trigonometric ratios, functions, and equations; inverse trigonometric functions; applications of trigonometry, including vectors; polar equations and polar form of complex numbers; arithmetic of complex numbers; and parametric equations.
Connections are made throughout the course to calculus and a variety of other fields related to mathematics. Purposeful concentration is placed on how the concepts covered relate to each other. Demonstrating the connection between the algebra and the geometry of concepts highlights the interwoven nature of the study of mathematics.
This is the first semester of a two part course, offered over a condensed 4 week term.
In this course, students use math to solve real-world problems—and real-world problems to solidify their understanding of key mathematical topics. Data analysis, math modeling, and personal finance are key themes in this course. Specific topics of study include statistics, probability, graphs of statistical data, regression, finance, and budgeting. In addition, students learn how to use several mathematical models involving algebra and geometry to solve problems. Proficiency is measured through frequent online and offline assessments as well as class participation. Units focused on projects also allow students to apply and extend their math skills in real-world cases.
