Grade 7 MATH

We started this school year 2014-2015 by reviewing all the math concepts from grade 6.
Past week, we started the first unit in Math 7 ;

Unit 1: Number Sense and Numeration

Representing and ordering decimals (to hundredths), fractions, and integers; representing squares and square roots; dividing whole numbers by simple fractions and decimals; adding and subtracting simple fractions and integers; multiplying and dividing decimal numbers to thousandths by one-digit whole numbers; applying order of operations in expressions with brackets; relating fractions, decimals, and percents; solving problems involving whole-number percents and unit rates.

Unit 1 will be covering Chapter 1,2,6 and 9 of the textbook.

I did provide the students with Chapter lesson outline before we started to make sure that students will know exactly which lesson we are covering as well the homework accompanying the lessons and students were asked to sign it by a parent.

Chapter 1:  Number Relationships

Students will:
·         Determine factors, greatest common factors, multiples, and least common multiples of whole numbers.
·         Use exponents to show repeated multiplication.
·         Calculate square roots of perfect squares.
·         Use order of operations with whole numbers.
