Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
a. 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. (to be taught C)
b. 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. Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers. (to be taught C)
c. Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers. (to be taught C and P)
d. Convert a rational number to a decimal using long division; know that the decimal form of a rational number terminates in 0’s or eventually repeats. (to be taught C and P)

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• use a number line or positive/negative chips to show that an integer and its opposite will always have a sum of zero.
• use a number line to show addition as a specific distance from a particular number in one direction or the other, depending on the sign of the value being added.
• interpret the addition of integers by relating the values to real-world situations.
• rewrite a subtraction problem as an addition problem by using the additive inverse.
• show the distance between two integers on a number line is the absolute value of their difference.
• describe real-world situations represented by the subtraction of integers.
• use the properties of operations to add and subtract rational numbers.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   7th Grade IXL C3

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments.

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday)  None 

I-Ready Adding/Subtracting Integers 

***Please check gradebook for your child’s class for specific due dates as they vary for each class.




Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems.

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
