- 7.NS.A.1Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
- 7.NS.A.2Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
- 7.NS.A.3Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers. (Computations with rational numbers extend the rules for manipulating fractions to complex fractions.)

Black Friday Blowout (Summative Assessment)

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Proportional Reasoning with Percents

Big Idea:Let the students have a blast experiencing a full BLACK FRIDAY excursion. Students will shop, and compare better buys using their understanding of calculating sales tax, and discount, to solve a performance task.

Write It Wednesday-Multiplying Integers

7th Grade Math

Integer Quotients

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Rational Number Operations

Big Idea:Students use their previous knowledge of signed products and fact families to discover the sign of quotients.

Solving Multi-Step Word Problems Given a Part to Part Ratio

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Proportional Reasoning

Big Idea:Using MP 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 students will grapple through and solve rigorous multi-step real world problems given a part to part ratio.

Expressions and Word Problems

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Operations with Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Students work in pairs to write and evaluate expressions from word problems.

Multiplying Signed Fractions

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Rational Number Operations

Big Idea:Students quickly discover that the signs of fraction products are the same as integer products. Then, the students practice multiplication.

Divide and Conquer

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Operations with Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Students take their weekly assessment and work independently to divide rational numbers

Multiplying and Dividing Integers

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Operations with Rational Numbers

Introduction to Mathematical Investigations

Big Idea:With the focal point being on the mathematical practices, studentâs will become math detectives searching for evidence to solve mathematical mysteries.

7.NS.A.2a

Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (â1)(â1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts

7.NS.A.2b

Understand that integers can be divided, provided that the divisor is not zero, and every quotient of integers (with non-zero divisor) is a rational number. If p and q are integers, then â(p/q) = (âp)/q = p/(âq). Interpret quotients of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

7.NS.A.2c

Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers.

7.NS.A.2d

Convert a rational number to a decimal using long division; know that the decimal form of a rational number terminates in 0s or eventually repeats.
