The regular sequence course for Grade 7 students, this course focuses on mastery of math skills needed to apply concepts encountered in higher-level courses. Students review basic arithmetic skills, then apply these skills to operations with whole numbers, integers, decimals, fractions, and percents. Further topics include ratio, proportion and geometry. Students experience more abstract thinking through the introduction of variables and learn to solve simple equations. Additional math time is allotted for a math lab, which provides opportunities for students to reinforce math concepts through a hands-on approach. Students who successfully complete this course move on to Pre-Algebra in Grade 8.
