This year students continue learning key math skills. Please email me straight away if you have concerns, or questions, regarding the program or your child’s progress. (You can email me too if your child tells you something great about math!) I am always happy to meet with families in person, or if your child has a math question please encourage him/her to talk to me in class or after school on Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday.
This year 7th graders learn many skills that they will use throughout high school and beyond! We will focus on the 7th grade Common Core standards, including:
- Ratios and Proportional Relationships – proportions
- The Number System – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of rational numbers (whole numbers, decimals and fractions, positive and negative)
- Expressions and Equations – multi-step equations
- Geometry – scale, circles, area, volume, surface area of 2D and 3D objects
- Statistics and Probability – theoretical and experimental probability
- Problem Solving
