The seventh grade math course follows the common core curriculum. For this 4 week course, the area of focus will be on integers.  Students will apply and extend previous understandings of operations with positive whole numbers to add, subtract, multiply, and divide positive and negative numbers. The course will also focus on the standards for mathematical practices. Students will be expected to make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, model with mathematics, use appropriate tools strategically, attend to precision, look for and make use of structure, and to look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
