Grade 7 Math


Beginning of Intermediate School and on the brink of their teenage years, Grade 7 helps a child discover his/her true personality. This is also the year where academic competition starts to rise and directions towards future careers begin to be mapped. Strengthening of mathematics concept in this grade also becomes imperative. Moving from the world of basic decimals and fractions, Grade 7 further explores the number system and proportional relationships and introduces the concepts of transformations and congruence.

Number theory

The study of whole numbers and their properties is called Number theory. Number theory is a large and interesting area in mathematics, including studying Prime numbers, rational numbers and so on. Number theory is important because it helps you to understand and master how the numbers function which helps with logical reasoning skills.

Integers are like whole numbers which means they do not have fraction or decimal part but unlike whole numbers they can be negative. Understanding integers will help you to understand that negative and positive numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite direction or values.

Operations with integers

Four basic operations with integer numbers. In the primary grades, students develop an understanding of part-whole concepts – they learn that two or more parts can be combined to create a whole (addition) or they can be separated from a whole (Subtraction). The multiplication of numbers is repeated addition. Separation of partitioning of objects from a set for an equal share without any disparity in the fixed number of groups.

Ratios, rates and proportions

A ratio shows the relative sizes of two or more values, in other words a Ratio compares values. A ratio says how much of one thing there is compared to another thing. For example, if there is 1 boy and 3 girls, we can write the ratio like 1:3 (for every 1 boy there are 3 girls.) Ratio, rates and proportion skills are useful to understand the association between two quantities.

“Percent” comes from the Latin Per Centum. The Latin word Centum means 100. When we say Percent, we mean per 100, so 1 percent means 1 per 100. We use the symbol % to show the percent. For example, 50% means 50 per 100. Understanding percentages is important for math skills and real life, for example stores advertise discounts on their products by using percents, like 30% off on math books.

Problem solving and estimation

A question that needs a solution. In mathematics some problems use words, so you need to learn how to interpret them into mathematical expressions and find the appropriate answer to the question. Problem solving is important skill in life which helps you to tackles the problem in life and find the best solution for them. Sometimes when we try to find an answer to our question, we cannot find the exact answer, so we estimate it. Estimation is the process of finding a value that is close enough to the right answer.

Units of measurement

A quantity used as a standard of measurement; it is how much makes up “1” of the measurement. So, 1 second is a unit of time or the basic unit of length in metric is meter so 1 meter is a unit of length. Measurement provides a meaningful context for the use of number skills and spatial concepts.

Coordinate plane

The plane containing X axis and Y axis is called coordinate plane. Cartesian coordinated can be used to pinpoint where we are on a map or graph. We can mark a point on a graph by how far along and how far up it is, the point (10,6) is 10 units along and 6 units up. Coordinate plane is exciting and important for learning math and it has important use in real life like mapping an area or arranging furniture in your room.

An equation says that two things are equal, it will have an equal sign “=”. A variable is a symbol for a number we do not know yet. A single variable equation (one-variable equation) is an equation in which there is only one variable used. Note that the variable can be used multiple times or used on either side of the equation; all that matters is that the variable remains the same.
