Course Description

                The seventh grade mathematics curriculum is comprised of the following major concepts or “Big Ideas”: Integers; Rational Numbers; Equations and Expressions; Graphing; Ratios and Proportions; Percents; Solving Equations; Angles and Geometry Shapes; Area and Volume; and Probability and Random Samples. In addition, there are applications related to fraction and decimal manipulations. While knowledge of content is developed, students will be engaged in direct instruction activities, differentiated lessons, hands-on activities and cooperative learning activities that encourage mathematical problem solving. The learning environment promotes mathematical reasoning, communication and higher order cognitive skills. Students will utilize technology such as calculators, lap top computers and scanners, cameras, and interactive white boards will be used to enhance instruction. Finally, evaluation of student performance will be accomplished through the use of primary, secondary, and support assessments. These may include but are not limited to tests, performance assessments, quizzes, informal assessments (both verbal and written), classroom observations, and homework.
