Grade 7 Overview

    • Ratios and Proportional Relationships

        • Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

    • The Number System

        • Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.

    • Expressions and Equations

        • Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.

        • Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.

    • Geometry

        • Draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them.

        • Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.

    • Statistics and Probability

        • Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

        • Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.

        • Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

    • Mathematical Practices

        • 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.
