  • Seventh Grade

    In seventh grade, work with unit rates and ratios continues and includes fractions and percentages.  Students add, subtract, multiply and divide rational numbers and integers while solving real-world problems.  Students solve real-world problems involving positive and negative rational numbers.  They also solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable. Our students use similar triangles to explain slope on a coordinate plane.  They also use the Pythagorean Theorem to find unknown side lengths of triangles and the distance between points in a coordinate plane.  Students continue to use statistics to draw inferences and develop probability models. In reading, seventh-grade students focus on finding the theme and central idea of a text, writing objective summaries, citing text evidence to support inferences, determining the meaning of key vocabulary, analyzing characters, setting and plot, and analyzing claims. Students also write opinion, narratives and explanatory pieces using appropriate grammar, spelling and punctuation.
