On this page you will find helpful information about 7th grade Math. This year we will build on the concepts that were learned in 6th grade.
A great resource for all chapters that we will cover this year is khanacadamy.com. This website includes instructional videos as well as practice problems.
Chapter 5 Concentrates on expressions. The main question that we will answer througout this chapter is "How can you use numbers and symbols to represent mathematical ideas?"
Throughout this chapter we will use the integer rules for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division that we learned in the last chapter. We will also be writing and solving algebraic expressions.
The vocabulary that will be used in this chapter can be found on page 346 of volume 2.
Lesson 1 - Algebraic expressions. The objective of this lesson will be to evaluate simple algebraic expressions
Lesson 2 - Sequences. By the end of this lesson students will be able to describe the relationships and extend terms in arithmetic
Lesson 3 - Properties of Opreations. This is a review of mathematical properties such as the commutative and associative
properties and how they can be used to simplify expressions.
Lesson 4 - The Distributive Property. Students will use mutliplication to help simplify expressions.
Lesson 5 - Simplify Algebraic Expressions. Students will be able to simplify expressions by using like terms.
Lesson 6 - Adding Linear Expressions.
Lesson 7 - Subtract Linear Expressions.
Lesson 8 - Factor Linear Expressions. This lesson will focus on being able to deconstruct an expression by using the GCF.
