Math 7/8

Math 7

Students will develop a unified understanding of numbers, recognizing fractions, decimals (repeating or terminating), and percents as different representations of rational numbers. Students will extend their under- standing of ratios and develop understanding of proportionality to solve multi-step problems. Students will extend their understanding of varia- bles to working with algebraic expressions including the distributive property and they will learn to solve one- and two-step equations. Students will extend their work with Geometric figures including area and circumference of circles. They will work with areas and volumes asso- ciated with some three-dimensional figures. Students will identify sta- tistical samples and populations and use sample results to represent and make predictions concerning populations.

Math 8

Students will learn the real number system. They will use linear equations and systems of linear equations to represent, analyze, and solve a variety of problems. Students will strategically choose and efficiently implement procedures to solve linear equations in one variable, understanding that when they use the properties of equality and the concept of logical equivalence, they maintain the solutions of the original equation. Students will grasp the concept of a function as a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. Students will use ideas about distance and angles, how they behave under translations, rotations, reflections, and dilations, and ideas about congruence and similarity to describe and analyze two-dimensional figures and to solve problems. Students will learn and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
