Math 7

Credit:

1 Middle School Credit

7

Assessment:

SOL TEST

Prerequisite:

Math 6 or equivalent

Students will develop an understanding of rational numbers by using a variety of concrete, pictorial, and abstract representations.  Solving multi-step practical problems and equations by analyzing proportional relationships, along with graphing and analyzing data, will provide the applications needed to make inferences and connections

 3119 pre-algebra 7-Honors Credit: 1 Middle School Credit Grade: 7 Assessment: SOL TEST Prerequisite: High level of achievement in Math 6, Teacher Recommendation This course will provide students with the ability to use problem solving and mathematical reasoning to describe the relationships among the subsets of the real number system. Through connecting proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations, students will develop an advanced understanding of multiple representations. New concepts include solving multi-step equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations, visualizing 3-D shapes represented in 2-D drawings, and applying transformations to geometric shapes in the coordinate plane. Students will apply the Pythagorean Theorem and represent relations and functions, using tales, graphs, and rules.
