In Math 7, we will continue to build upon the foundations of algebra that were laid in Math 6. The following is a list of topics that we will be covering this year.
- Powers of Ten
- Scientific Notation
- Compare and Order Rational Numbers
- Square Roots and Perfect Squares
- Absolute Value of Rational Numbers
- Operations/Practical Problems with Rational Numbers
- Proportional Reasoning
- Volume and Surface Area (Rectangular Prisms/Cylinders)
- Similar Figures
- Properties of Quadrilaterals
- Transformations (Translations and Reflections)
- Probability (Theoretical and Experimental)
- Histograms and Other Graphs
- Slope and Y-Intercept
- Order of Operations
- Replacement Value
- Solving Two-Step Equations
- Solving and Graphing Inequalities
A = 90-100 B = 80-89 C = 70-79 D = 60-69 F = 59 and below
- Major summative assessments, such as tests, will count two (2) times in the grade book.
- Minor summative assessments, such as quizzes, will count one and a half (1.5) times in the grade book.
- Major formative assessments, such as classwork, will count one (1) time in the grade book.
- Minor formative assessments, such as homework, will count half (0.5) in the grade book.
Practice is essential to learning. The student who does not complete or at least attempt the practice will not be successful in math class. Any assignment that is given needs to be attempted in order to receive credit. Zeros will be given for work not turned in and points will be deducted for work turned in late. Students will be allowed to redo most assignments for partial credit to receive a higher grade unless the original assignment was turned in late. This is my form of extra credit.
