Math is an important part of the Grade 7 curriculum. Math class is going to be taught daily in the morning, generally after recess.
Even though it is not mandatory, I strongly recommend that students have a calculator, a 30 cm ruler, a protractor and a compass. Bingo chips or blocs with at least two different colours will help students while doing homework at home.
In class, I will be basing my lessons on Math Makes Sense 7. Math Makes Sense offers a website to support the student’s learning at home. You can visit it at the following address: http://www.pearsoned.ca/school/math/mathmakessense7/ . Students will be given an activity book to practice notions at home.
Students will be given two workbooks and a duo tang. One of the workbook is going to be a Math Concept dictionary and the other one will be to practice the exercises from Math Makes Sense 7 in class. In the duo-tang, students will insert extra-practice worksheets, Math Minutes and Mini-Tests. Unit tests will be kept in the student’s file until the end of the school year.
What I need to know before starting the Grade 7 Math curriculum
– Additions and Subtractions to 12
– Time tables to 12
We are using this website to understand math concepts in class. Please use it at home when doing homework.
