Subject AreaAdvanced/ Regular Math
Grade Level7th
Week #1
Unit of InstructionFocus 1: The Number System
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.7.NS.1.2

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.

  1. Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (-1)(-1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

  2. Understand that integers can be divided, provided that the divisor is not zero, and every quotient of integers (with non-zero divisor) is a rational number. If p and q are integers, then -(p/q) = (-p)/q = p/(-q). Interpret quotients of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

  3. Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers.

  4. Convert a rational number to a decimal using long division; know that the decimal form of a rational number terminates in 0s or eventually repeats.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they can…

  • multiply positive and negative integers using properties of operations.
  • multiply positive and negative rational numbers using properties of operations.
  • divide integers, provided the divisor is not zero
  • divide rational numbers using properties of operations
  • define a rational number as a decimal that terminates or eventually repeats
  • use long division to convert a rational number to a decimal
