This package of student-friendly objectives covering the Common Core 7th grade math curriculum (AKA "I Can" Statements or KUDs) contains three versions, all in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint so that you can adapt as desired, one formatted as a checklist designed to be distributed to students and parents, one as a set of 8.5 x 11 posters to easily display in the classroom (I put mine on binder rings and hang from hooks) and one that is not formatted so that you can easily copy and paste into lesson plans or parent emails. I have also arranged the standards to align with how they are presented in Kahn Academy, which I feel is the most logical teaching order.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: I have provided a Common Core alignment reference down to the level of a standard (e.g. each standard is broken down into numbered objectives). Where the Common Core gives lettered "substandards" that elaborate on a standard, I have included these concepts and tasks in my objectives; however, they are not necessarily in the same order and I have not included this last level in my numbering system.
For example, on corestandards.org, you would find:
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). Interpret quotients of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
My objectives that cover these same ideas are:
7.NS.A.2.10 I understand why mathematicians have left division by zero undefined.
7.NS.A.2.11 I can explain why the quotient of two rational numbers (except where the divisor is zero) is always a rational number.
7.NS.A.2.12 I can show how the fraction or decimal answer to a real-world division problem is related to the two rational numbers I divided to get it.
If you need the Common Core reference down to the letter, this is NOT the right purchase for you. If you are more interested in having the Common Core Standards organized in bite-sized chunks and put in a logical teaching order, this should be right up your alley.
