Grade 7 Mathematics

In Grade 7, instruction will focus on four critical areas:

  • Developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships;
  • Developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations;
  • Solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and
  • Drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

Students will:

  • Students will engage in mathematically rich investigations in the classroom, guided by the CMP2 curriculum.
  • Students will have clear opportunities for enrichment and support in each unit of instruction
  • Students will have the opportunity to participate in one of two extra-curricular math clubs at the Upper Campus: one club will be focused on supporting students with foundational content, and another club will focused on offering students enrichment opportunities focused on problem solving and mathematical connections
  • Students will engage in online activities, inside and outside of the classroom, which will deepen their understanding of mathematics
