Grade 7 Mathematics Module 1: Ratios and Proportional Relationship

In this 30-day Grade 7 module, students build upon sixth grade reasoning of ratios and rates to formally define proportional relationships and the constant of proportionality. Students explore multiple representations of proportional relationships by looking at tables, graphs, equations, and verbal descriptions. Students extend their understanding about ratios and proportional relationships to compute unit rates for ratios and rates specified by rational numbers. The module concludes with students applying proportional reasoning to identify scale factor and create a scale drawing.

Grade 7 Module 2: Rational Numbers

In Grade 6, students formed a conceptual understanding of integers through the use of the number line, absolute value, and opposites and extended their understanding to include the ordering and comparing of rational numbers. This module uses the Integer Game: a card game that creates a conceptual understanding of integer operations and serves as a powerful mental model students can rely on during the module. Students build on their understanding of rational numbers to add, subtract, multiply, and divide signed numbers. Previous work in computing the sums, differences, products, and quotients of fractions serves as a significant foundation.

Topic A Addition and Subtraction of Integers and Rational Numbers
Topic B Multiplication and Division of Integers and Rational Numbers
Topic C Applying Operations with Rational Numbers to Expressions and Equations

Grade 7 Module 3: Expressions and Equations

This module consolidates and expands upon students’ understanding of equivalent expressions as they apply the properties of operations to write expressions in both standard form and in factored form. They use linear equations to solve unknown angle problems and other problems presented within context to understand that solving algebraic equations is all about the numbers. Students use the number line to understand the properties of inequality and recognize when to preserve the inequality and when to reverse the inequality when solving problems leading to inequalities. They interpret solutions within the context of problems. Students extend their sixth-grade study of geometric figures and the relationships between them as they apply their work with expressions and equations to solve problems involving area of a circle and composite area in the plane, as well as volume and surface area of right prisms.

Module 3
Topic A Use Properties of Operations to Generate Equivalent Expressions
Topic B Solve Problems Using Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities
Topic C Use Equations and Inequalities to Solve Geometry Problems

Grade 7 Module 4: Percent and Proportional Relationships

In Module 4, students deepen their understanding of ratios and proportional relationships from Module 1 by solving a variety of percent problems. They convert between fractions, decimals, and percents to further develop a conceptual understanding of percent and use algebraic expressions and equations to solve multi-step percent problems. An initial focus on relating 100% to “the whole” serves as a foundation for students. Students begin the module by solving problems without using a calculator to develop an understanding of the reasoning underlying the calculations. Material in early lessons is designed to reinforce students’ understanding by having them use mental math and basic computational skills. To develop a conceptual understanding, students use visual models and equations, building on their earlier work with these. As the lessons and topics progress and students solve multi-step percent problems algebraically with numbers that are not as compatible, teachers may let students use calculators so that their computational work does not become a distraction.

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 4.

Module 4

Topic C Scale Drawings

Grade 7 Module 5: Statistics and Probability

In this module, students begin their study of probability, learning how to interpret probabilities and how to compute probabilities in simple settings. They also learn how to estimate probabilities empirically. Probability provides a foundation for the inferential reasoning developed in the second half of this module. Additionally, students build on their knowledge of data distributions that they studied in Grade 6, compare data distributions of two or more populations, and are introduced to the idea of drawing informal inferences based on data from random samples.

Module 5
Topic A Calculating and Interpreting Probabilities
Topic B Estimating Probabilities
Topic C Random Sampling and Estimating Population Characteristics
Topic D Comparing Populations

In Module 6, students delve further into several geometry topics they have been developing over the years. Grade 7 presents some of these topics, (e.g., angles, area, surface area, and volume) in the most challenging form students have experienced yet. Module 6 assumes students understand the basics. The goal is to build a fluency in these difficult problems. The remaining topics, (i.e., working on constructing triangles and taking slices (or cross-sections) of three-dimensional figures) are new to students.

Module 6
Topic A Unknown Angles
Topic B Constructing Triangles
Topic C Slicing Solids
Topic D Problems Involving Area and Surface Area
Topic E Problems Involving Volume
