Q1, W7: October 12th – 16th Advanced Math

TeacherFelicia Taylor
Subject AreaAdvanced Math
Grade Level7th
Week #7
Unit of InstructionFocus 1: Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities
Standard(s) Taught


Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

  1. Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach.

  2.  Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem.
