Grade Math Syllabus

2014-2015

Ms. Lewis Email address: lewisk6@fultonschools.org

Textbook: On-Level ($56.47): Prentice Hall Mathematics, Course 2

Advanced ($54.95): Holt Mathematics, Course 3

Course description: In Grade 7, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) developing

understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational

numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and

informal geometric constructions, and working with two and threedimensional shapes to solve problems

involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

Process standards and performance-based tasks are also essential to mastering each of the mathematics content

standards, as they emphasize critical dimensions of the mathematical proficiency that all students need.

th

Grade Common Core Mathematics Content Standards:

Unit 1: Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply,

and divide rational numbers.

MCC.7.NS.1 Apply 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.

a. Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0 (zero). For example, a hydrogen

atom has 0 charge because its two constituents are oppositely charged.

b. Understand p + q as the number located a distance from p, in the positive or negative direction

depending on whether q is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0

(are additive inverses). Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

c. Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, p q = p + (-q). Show

that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their

difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts.

d. Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract rational numbers.

MCC.7.NS.2 Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply

and divide rational numbers.

a. 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(-1)(-1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers.

b. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

c. 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 -(p/q) = (-p)/q = p/(-q).

d. Interpret quotients of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

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

f. 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.

MCC.7.NS.3 Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.

Standards for Mathematical Practice:

1. Make sense of complex problems and persevere in solving them.

6. Attend to precision.

Unit 2:Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.

Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.

MCC.7.EE.1 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions

with rational coefficients.

- 2 -

MCC.7.EE.2 Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the

problem and how the quantities in it are related.

Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.

MCC.7.EE.3 Solve 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.

MCC.7.EE.4 Use 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.

MCC.7.EE.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.

MCC.7.EE.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.

Additional Standards for Advanced

MCC.8.EE.7 Solve linear equations in one variable.

MCC.8.EE.7a Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no

solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler

forms, until an equivalent equation of the form a x , a a , or b a results (where a and b are different

numbers).

MCC.8.EE.7b Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require

expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

Standards for Mathematical Practice:

6. Attend to precision

7. Look for and make use of structure

Unit 3: Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

MCC.7.RP.1 Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other

quantities measured in like or different units. For example, if a person walks mile in each hour, compute the

unit rate as the complex fraction

MCC.7.RP.2 Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.

MCC.7.RP.2a Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios

in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.

MCC.7.RP.2b Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal

descriptions of proportional relationships.

MCC.7.RP.2c Represent proportional relationships by equations. For example, if total cost t is proportional to the

number n of items purchased at a constant price p, the relationship between the total cost and the number of items

can be expressed as t = pn.

MCC.7.RP.2d Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the

situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate.

MCC.7.RP.3 Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple

interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent

error.

Draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them.

MCC.7.G.1 Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and

areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale.

Additional Standards for Advanced

MCC.8.EE.5 Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two

different proportional relationships represented in different ways.

Standards for Mathematical Practice:

4. Model with mathematics

- 3 -

Unit 4: Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

MCC.7.SP.1 Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample

of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative

of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid

inferences.

MCC.7.SP.2 Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown

characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation

in estimates or predictions. For example, estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words

from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly sampled survey data. Gauge how far off

the estimate or prediction might be.

Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.

MCC.7.SP.3 Informally assess the degree of visual overlap of two numerical data distributions with similar

variabilities, measuring the difference between the centers by expressing it as a multiple of a measure of

variability.

MCC.7.SP.4 Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw

informal comparative inferences about two populations.

Additional Standards for Advanced

MCC.8.SP.1 Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of

association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association,

linear association, and nonlinear association.

Standards for Mathematical Practice:

3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

Unit 5: Draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them.

MCC.7.G.2 Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given

conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions

determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.

MCC.7.G.3 Describe the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing three-dimensional figures, as in plane

sections of right rectangular prisms and right rectangular pyramids.

Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.

MCC.7.G.4 Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an

informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.

MCC.7.G.5 Use facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem

to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure.

MCC.7.G.6 Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and

three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.

Unit 6: Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

MCC.7.SP.5 Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the

likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an

unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near

1 indicates a likely event.

MCC.7.SP.6 Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces

it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the

probability. For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200

times, but probably not exactly 200 times.

MCC.7.SP.7 Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a

model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.

MCC.7.SP.7a Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the

model to determine probabilities of events.

MCC.7.SP.7b Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated

from a chance process.

MCC.7.SP.8 Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.

- 4 -

MCC.7.SP.8a Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of

outcomes in the sample space for which the compound event occurs.

MCC.7.SP.8b Represent sample spaces for compound events using methods such as organized lists, tables and tree

diagrams. For an event described in everyday language (e.g., rolling double sixes), identify the outcomes in the

sample space which compose the event.

MCC.7.SP.8c Design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events.

Standards for Mathematical Practice:

7. Look for and make use of structure.

8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Students are expected to adhere to the rules and policies of Renaissance Middle School and

Fulton County as stated in the RMS Student Handbook/Agenda and the Fulton Countys

Guidelines for Student Behavior.

Homework: It is the policy of Renaissance Middle School to assign homework as a reinforcement

of concepts learned in class; however, it is up to the discretion of the individual teacher as to whether

it is assigned daily or over the weekend. Evaluation of homework may consist of detailed grading,

generalized checking, or a combination of both techniques.

Recovery Process: FCBOE policy on Grading and Reporting (IHA) provides for the recovery

process at the middle school level.

B. Provision for Improving Grades

1. Opportunities designed to allow students to recover from a low or failing cumulative

grade will be allowed when all work required to date has been completed and the student

has demonstrated a legitimate effort to meet all course requirements including attendance.

2. Teachers will determine when and how students with extenuating circumstances may

improve their grades.

Scheduled Help Sessions: The teacher will be available to assist students who are experiencing

difficulty. It is imperative, however, that students requiring assistance give the teacher 24 hour

notice. Opportunity to accelerate can be requested prior to school and after school; however, if

assistance is requested during after school hours, it is the parents responsibility to provide

transportation.

Teacher/Parent Communication: An open line of communication is encouraged between teachers

and parents. Parental visits are encouraged; however, it is the policy of Renaissance Middle School

that all visitors must report to the office before going to other parts of the building. A Visitors Pass

will be issued as evidence that this procedure has been followed.

Absence/Make-Up Procedures: Upon returning to school following an absence, it is the students

responsibility to contact the teacher(s) to request make-up work. Make-up work must be completed

by the student within the time specified by the teacher. At Renaissance Middle School, the student

will given the same amount of time to make up the work as the student was absent unless other

arrangements are mutually agreed upon. The student will receive the actual grade on the make-up

work if the absence was excused. Make-up for unexcused absences may be reduced by 10 points.
