Middle School Math

Middle school is one of the best times to begin exploring mathematics: this subject for many middle school kids is scary. Thus, getting rid of this fear of middle school math from the students can be a tough job for the teachers. Apart from handling the students, the teacher should be well aware of the particulars they need to cover without going over and beyond the required level. Middle school math contains topics such as: fractions, geometry, formulas, conversions and general math. Mathematics at middle school level should teach students to intelligently logic out the formulas and apply math in their day-to-day life.

Teaching math at middle school level can be very challenging. Teaching concepts, which are applicable in real life, is a tough job, but with the collection of resources and questions to practice, the fear of math in students can be tackled. This guide will provide various links to learn the topics and links to various worksheets, which students can practice to judge their understanding of fundamentals and concepts on each of the topics.

Learning mathematics at any level can be fun provided proper concepts are embedded in the minds of those who teach and in those who study them. Middle school math concepts can be easy to grab at times but just knowing these concepts won’t fetch grades, worksheets are a must if you wish to come out with flying colors in the league of mathematics.


Fractions in mathematics are the ratio of algebraic quantity expressed in a/b form. In middle school, the child should be familiar with concepts of fractions and identifying a fraction. They should be learning about equivalent and identical fractions. The basic formulas of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing should be imbibed. Students should also be able to compare fractions and convert them into decimals.

Word problems are the most difficult ones to tackle. Conversion between various units can be asked from pupils. The students also desire converting decimals into fractions.


Geometry is a branch of mathematics all about shape, size, relative position of figures and the properties of space. Middle school geometry introduces topics such as: polygons, area, perimeter and volume of geometric and solid figures. Topics on angles, coordinate planes and transformation should be introduced here. Congruency and similarity of triangles are the other topics covered under this unit.


Understanding the concepts of coefficients, variables and polynomials are expected of the students here. This section of math introduces solving of algebraic equations Evaluation of algebraic polynomials along with the application of basic mathematics formula on the expressions are needed. This is a tough section and usually students take time before they settle in this section.

Other mathematics

In mathematics, a percentage is a way of expressing a number as a fraction of 100. It is denoted by "%" symbol. This concept of math is applied in daily life as well; therefore having a grasp on this subject is essential. Students are required to calculate percentages of amount given to them. Word problems form a mandatory part of this section.

  • Learning percentage - A simple interactive guide to learn percentages.
  • Tutorials - This guide provides all the formula pertaining to this topic in math.
  • Interactive percentage – A webpage with explanation of how to use a 10 x 10 grid to explain basic concept of percent, and solve various types of percent problems
  • Math Quizzes - An interactive quiz on percentage of numbers

This unit in mathematics covers all the basic operations in the domain on integers. Integers are natural numbers including 0 with all the negatives of the non-zero natural numbers. Here, basic mathematics formulas should also be taught to the students.
