Math Grade 6 and 7

Instructor: Ms. De Jesus

__Grade 6 Overview:__**unit 1**will assess student’s ability to accurately solve problems. However, the expectation is that the students will have many opportunities to develop fluency, defined as speed and accuracy, in the areas of multi-digit division and operations on decimals using the standard algorithms throughout the school year. Unit 1 builds on the students’ understanding of number system concepts from previous grades to extend to division of a fraction by a fraction, operations with decimals, and multi-digit division.

**Unit 2**employs the students’ understanding of the concepts involving integers in unit 1 to understand and apply rational number concepts. Unit 2 also introduces students to ratios and rates. Students will use reasoning to solve real world ratio and unit rate problems

**unit 3**, students are introduced to expressions involving numbers and variables. Students apply properties of operations, find greatest common factor, and find least common multiple in this unit.

**unit 4**, students will focus on equations and inequalities. Students will write and solve one step equations that represent real world problems. Students will also use inequalities to represent constraints and conditions.

**unit 5**, the standards from the Geometry and Statistics and Probability domains are included as a means of providing real world contexts. Students will find area, surface area, and volume of shapes. They will also display numerical data in different types of representations.

**Grade 7 Overview****Unit 1**- rational numbers with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of rational numbers and to use these skills in a problem solving context.

**Unit 2**will focus on problem solving, developing fluency with rewriting linear expressions, and solving linear equations. Students will use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.

**Unit 3**combines rational number arithmetic and linear expressions and equations concepts. Students will analyze proportional relationships and use them in problem solving. The geometry standards will provide opportunities for the students to use proportional reasoning in context.

**unit 4**the students will continue to use ratios and proportional reasoning in multi‐step ratio and percent problems. The standards from the Statistics and Probability domain will support the use of proportional reasoning in context.

**Unit 5**will consist of drawing, constructing, and describing geometrical figures and analyzing the relationships between them. Students will also solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.
