This 123-page unit was designed to be first in the study of 7th grade Math, but can be used in a variety of grades. It uses a wide-variety of interactive lessons, including both traditional notes and practice as well as games, experiments and connections to other subjects, to help students understand the concepts included in the unit. It also includes a section of enrichment, remediation, and private school inspired worksheets. It includes all lesson plans, worksheets, answer keys, and a PowerPoint review game. (The rest of this year long course will also be available for download by the end of April, 2011.) You will need win zip to open this download.
Standards of Learning
7.2 Ã¯ï¿½Â The student will simplify expressions that contain rational numbers (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals) and positive exponents, using order of operations, mental mathematics, and appropriate tools.
7.3 Ã¯ï¿½Â The student will identify and apply the following properties of operations with real numbers:
a) the commutative and associative properties for addition and multiplication;
b) the distributive property;
c) the additive and multiplicative identity properties;
d) the additive and multiplicative inverse properties; and
e) the multiplicative property of zero.
7.5 Ã¯ï¿½Â The student will formulate rules for and solve practical problems involving basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with integers.
