LKSD utilizes HMH Into Math for mathematics courses in grades K-12. Students should be exposed to Into Math Grade 7 and Grade 8 in Tier 1 classes. This path prepares students for Algebra 1 as 9th graders. HMH Into AGA builds on Into Math with a comprehensive Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 curriculum for high school students. Into AGA provides the depth of knowledge, complexity of conceptual understanding, procedural fluency and applications students need for critical assessments, calculus, college, and career.
Grades 6-8 Core Courses
LKSD's 6-8th grade math department uses Into Math for our core courses. The program aligns with the Alaska Math Standards and includes opportunities for students to build a positive relationship with mathematics.
Junior High Intervention
Intervention courses have been developed to address the needs of students that are two or more years below grade level with their mathematics skills. These courses use a variety of materials to meet the needs of the students.
Students are placed in intervention courses by an instructional team. The goal of an intervention course is to build students' skills so they can be successful in the core curriculum as quickly as possible.
Math 180 is the curriculum for Junior High Fundamentals. Students must have a documented RtI plan in order to be enrolled in this course.
