Course Description:

This year, there will be a focus on the standards for mathematical practices. Throughout Grade 7, students should continue to develop proficiency with the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices described below.

 

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

4. Model with mathematics.

5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

6. Attend to precision.

7. Look for and make use of structure.

8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

 

Students are expected to demonstrate their knowledge through homework, class work, quizzes, tests, and projects.

 

Student Outcome Objective

This course requires students to put forth effort by paying attention in class, participating, taking notes, and completing all homework assignments, which will prepare them for the test and exams.

Areas Covered:

7th Grade

Unit 1- Number Systems-                                            Using Positive and negative numbers in context

Unit 2 - Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities –     Steps to solving equations

Unit 3 - Proportional Reasoning  -                               Proportional Situations, Sense of Scale, Percent Changes

Unit 4 – Geometry-                                                      Basic terms and applications, Area, maximizing area, 

Unit 5 – Probabilty –                                                   Exercises in basic understanding and terminology

Unit 6 – Statistics –                                                      Understanding basic statistical operations and applications

 

Grading Criteria:

Textbook

The primary textbook for 7th math is Springboard Courses 2.  The Springboard text is aligned with Common Core State Standards that have been adopted by the state of Kentucky and many other states. Please visit http://www.corestandards.org/ for more information. Springboard offers engaging and relevant lessons that teach students proven learning strategies. The strategies embedded in the Springboard program emphasize higher-order thinking skills and challenge all students to aim higher and achieve more.
