Seventh Grade Mathematics Curriculum, Seventh Grade Math Class Activities and Worksheets This course follows the Common Core Standards for 7th grade mathematics and focuses on four critical areas. First, the students will develop and understanding of proportional relationships. They will use their understanding of ratios to develop an understanding of proportionality and solve single- and multi-step problems. The students will learn to use their understanding to solve a wide variety of percent problems. Second, the students will learn to understand operations with rational numbers and begin to work with expressions and linear equations. Third, the students will learn to use two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems regarding area, surface area, and volume. Fourth, the students will learn to draw conclusions about populations based on samples.

Brain Teasers Sliding Triangle The triangle at left lies on a flat surface and is pushed at the top vertex. The length of the congruent sides does not change, but the angle between the two congruent sides will increase, and the base will stretch. What is the maximum area achieved during this process? This brainteaser was written by Derrick Niederman. Solution: 200 square units; 32 units. For the first part of the question, the maximum area occurs when the angle between the sides is a right angle. For a more advanced trigonometry solution, remember that the area of a triangle can be calculated by taking half the product of two sides and the sine of the angle between those sides. For the second part of the question, note that if you bisect the original triangle, divide it into two right triangles, and rearrange the pieces, you can form a new triangle with exactly the same area. Again using a trig solution, A=(1/2)absinθ, where a and b are the side lengths.

3 Things that Don't Suck about the Common Core Math Standards Posted by Lindsey Walborn on Wednesday, 06/17/2015 Since the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), there’s been plenty of controversy, especially when it comes to math. Parents are talking about their dislike of the “new math,” while students scoff at the critical thinking they are being asked to do. While no set of standards will ever be perfect, here are three things that definitely don’t suck about Common Core math: 1. The CCSS do a great job of building learning progressions through all K-12 grade levels so that each year students build on what they learned the year before and deepen those skills. As students move into middle school, variables (x, y, z) are added to equations, and students use opposite operations to find the variable’s value. 2. I created this Wordle using the top 100 words in the CCSS math standards. When this picture popped up, I was surprised at the sentence that emerged: “Understand problems using numbers and equations.” 3.
