Q2, W2: October 22nd – 26th

Teacher Felicia Taylor Intensive Math 7th 11 Focus 2: Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.7.EE.1.1

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.

MAFS.7.EE.2.3

Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically.  Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies.  For example:  If a woman making \$25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or \$2.50, for a new salary of \$27.50.  If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will be successful when they can (Standard MAFS.7.EE.1.1):

• use the commutative and associative properties to add linear expressions with rational coefficients.
• identify the different parts of an expression including constants and variable terms, like terms, and coefficients.
• use the distributive property to add and/or subtract linear expressions with rational coefficients.
• use the distributive property to factor out Greatest Common Factor of linear expressions.

Assessment Limits/Notes:

• Numbers in items must be rational numbers.
• Expressions must be linear and contain a variable.

Students will be successful when they can (Standard MAFS.7.EE.2.3):

• apply properties of operations to solve multi-step real-world problems with all rational numbers.
• explain the significance between different forms of equivalent rational numbers.
• justify the reasonableness of solutions using mental computation and estimation.
• solve multi-step real-world problems involving all types of rational numbers with precision.

Assessment Limits:

• Numbers in items must be rational numbers.
• No variables.
• Items should require two or more steps.
