NFS Curriculum Update :: December, 2015
Seventh graders will continue solving algebraic equations with variables on both sides. This includes reinforcing the use of inverse operations, combining like-terms, simplifying to lowest terms, and checking each equation as the final step. Students will be given formulas that are unfamiliar to them and evaluate a word problem given what each variable means. This is an important skill because in many occupations, various formulas are used to represent situations. Students will be involved in several activities including investigating if coupon clipping is actually saving money, exploring how a car’s fuel economy changes as it drives, and examining if taller sprinters have an advantage to winning the race.
With integrating technology, we will also continue working with Google Sheets, Google Slides, graphing calculators, Desmos, and continue having class notes and resources shared on Google Classroom. The cumulative math midterm will be in mid-January.
