# Middle School Math 7A

## Course Description:

This is the first segment of a two semester course. Have you ever wondered, “When will I use this in real life?” Grade 7 Mathematics has great news! There are hundreds of ways that math is used in the real world, and this course is designed to help you think critically as you explore a few of those applications. With hands-on activities and interactive lessons, students will have the opportunity to apply what they learn in relevant ways. Key foundational concepts like proportional relationships, probability, and geometry will help prepare students for the next level of learning.

Instructional time for Grade 7 Mathematics will emphasize five areas: (1) recognizing that fractions, decimals, and percentages are different representations of rational numbers and performing all four operations with rational numbers with procedural fluency; (2) creating equivalent expressions and solving equations and inequalities; (3) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships in two variables; (4) extending analysis of two- and three-dimensional figures to include circles and cylinders; and (5) representing and comparing categorical and numerical data and developing understanding of probability.
