7th Grade Math Curriculum

Grade 7 Mathematics Introduction

Within a well-balanced mathematics curriculum, the primary focal points for Grade 7 are using direct proportional relationships in numbers, geometry, measurement, and probability; applying addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of decimals, fractions, and integers; and using statistical measures to describe data.

In Grade 7 mathematics students will:

  • Develop fluency with rational numbers and operations to solve problems in a variety of contexts.
  •  Understand how operations extend across different sets of numbers. Students develop fluency with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of rational numbers and use the operations to solve problems.

  •  Represent and apply proportional relationships, including geometry, probability and statistics.

  •  Use reasoning about ratios, rates, proportionality, and percent to solve problems.

  •  Use expressions and equations to describe relationships in a variety of contexts, including geometric problems.

  •  Select, justify, and use appropriate symbolic representations to solve problems in varied contexts, including use of geometric formulas for pyramids and circles.

  •  Compare sets of data.

  •  Use representations of center, spread, and shape to compare and form inferences about sets of data

  •  Develop an economic way of thinking and problem solving.

Throughout grade 7 mathematics, students will use problem solving in meaningful contexts, develop mathematical language for appropriate communication, make connections within and outside mathematics, and construct formal and informal reasoning skills that underlie all of the strands in mathematics.  Students will use these processes together with graphing technology and other mathematical tools such as manipulative materials to develop conceptual understanding and solve problems.
