Mathematics Grade 7

20072Y0 NC

Mathematics Grade 7 is designed to prepare junior-high students for Mathematics Grade 8. 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.
