- 7.EE.B.3Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations as strategies to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
- 7.EE.B.4Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

Inequalities

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Equations

Big Idea:Why do we graph the solution to an inequality? This lesson investigates inequalities and their graphs.

Linear Expressions and Word Problems

7th Grade Math

Two Step Equations

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Equations

Big Idea:It's time to undo the order of operations! This lesson introduces students to two-step equations.

Applications of One Step Equations

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Equations

Big Idea:If you cannot apply what you learn - what is the point? This lesson allows students the chance to apply one step equations to real world scenarios.

Inequality Applications

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Equations

Big Idea:At most and at least - the most common mistakes in inequality verbiage - this lesson addresses their meaning, and thus their inequality.

7.EE.B.4a

Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?

7.EE.B.4b

Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions. (Combine with 424)
