Description

A 12 day CCSS-Aligned Rational Number Operations Unit includes adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing rational numbers (both positive and negative). Students will use the additive inverse property, number line models, and the algorithm to solve rational number problems.

Students will practice with both skill-based problems, real-world application questions, and error analysis to support higher level thinking skills. You can reach your students and teach the standards without all of the prep and stress of creating materials!

Standards: 7.NS.1, 7.NS.2, 7.NS.3; Texas Teacher? Grab the TEKS-Aligned Numbers and Operations Unit. Please don’t purchase both as there is overlapping content.

Learning Focus:

  • represent rational numbers on a number line & write situations that combine to make zero
  • classify rational numbers
  • add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers in real-world situations

More details on what is included:

1. Unit Overviews

  • Streamline planning with unit overviews that include essential questions, big ideas, vertical alignment, vocabulary, and common misconceptions.
  • A pacing guide and tips for teaching each topic are included to help you be more efficient in your planning.

2. Student Handouts

  • Student-friendly guided notes are scaffolded to support student learning. 
  • Available as a PDF and the student handouts/homework/study guides have been converted to Google Slides™ for your convenience.

3. Independent Practice

  • Daily homework is aligned directly to the student handouts and is versatile for both in class or at home practice. 

4. Assessments

  • Quiz(es), a unit study guide, and a unit test allow you to easily assess and meet the needs of your students.
  • The Unit Test is available as an editable PPT, so that you can modify and adjust questions as needed.

5. Answer Keys

  • All answer keys are included.

How to use this resource:

  • Use as a whole group, guided notes setting
  • Use in a small group, math workshop setting
  • Chunk each student handout to incorporate whole group instruction, small group practice, and independent practice.
  • Incorporate our Rational Numbers Activity Bundle for hands-on activities as additional and engaging practice opportunities.

Time to Complete:

  • Each student handout is designed for a single class period. However, feel free to review the problems and select specific ones to meet your student needs. There are multiple problems to practice the same concepts, so you can adjust as needed.

Is this resource editable?

  • The unit test is editable with Microsoft PPT. The remainder of the file is a PDF and not editable.

Looking for hands-on classroom activities?

  • Check out the corresponding Rational Numbers Activity Bundle, which includes activities like scavenger hunts, find it and fix its, mazes and more to allow students to engage and practice the concepts. Win-win!

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.
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.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers.
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.
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. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
