  • In Grade 7, instructional time will focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples. The standards are fully explained TN.gov website. https://www.tn.gov/assets/entities/education/attachments/std_math_gr_7.pdf

Classwork: Participation in class activities and class assignments are important to informally assess student learning and understanding. All students are expected to participate in class. Participating in note-taking is a part of the class experience. Students are expected to take notes in their composition notebooks/3-ring binder.

Homework: Students will receive homework regularly to reinforce key math concepts. Students are expected to complete and turn in all homework in a timely manner. Homework is usually due the next day, unless otherwise specified by the teacher.

Tests: A test will be given at the conclusion of every Module and Unit.  

Tests should be completed independently. Using notes, talking, or cheating during a test is NOT allowed. If a student is found doing such things, he/she will receive a ZERO on the test and cannot make up the test.

Late/Makeup work: Ten points will be deducted per day for all late work. A student will have one day for everyday they are absent to complete absent work.

Grading: Grades will be updated on Gradebook Wizard once per week. All students and parents have a username and password to use to check grades and communicate with teachers.
