Mathematics Common Core 7:  A Story of Ratios Ms. Paton/ jpaton5591@stjoeronkelem.org Extra Help is available during study hall, lunch, or by appointment after school

This course will focus on many different aspects of a student’s learning experience.  The first emphasis is on study habits, including homework, note-taking, study skills, and test taking.  Mastery of basic skills in arithmetic is second.  The third point of emphasis and most challenging is the ability to apply the processes and proficiencies addressed in the Mathematical Practices.

Seventh grade mathematics is about (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

Key Areas of Focus for Grade 7: Ratios and proportional reasoning; arithmetic of rational numbers. 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. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
