Mathematics 7

03103000 TX

Mathematics 7 is designed to prepare junior-high students for Pre-algebra. This course focuses on strengthening needed skills in problem solving, number sense, and proportional reasoning. It also introduces students to operations with rational numbers, solving multi-step equations and inequalities, and geometric concepts. Students will begin to see the "big picture" of mathematics and learn how numeric, algebraic, and geometric concepts are woven together to build a foundation for higher mathematical thinking.

By the end of the course, students will be expected to do the following:

  • Gain an increased awareness of how math is a life skill.

  • Understand how math gives us different ways to model or express the same thing.

  • Explore concepts taught in previous math courses, but at higher levels, applying the concepts to real world situations.

  • Utilize new skills and concepts that will help them in future math courses.

  • Examine the real number system, including rational numbers.

  • Extend understanding of variable expressions and equations.

  • Use proportional reasoning in order to model and solve real-world problems.

  • Explore and extend understanding of probability and statistical concepts.

  • Apply algebraic concepts to solve geometric problems.

  • Apply surface area and volume concepts to solve mathematical and real-world problems.
