# Math

Math is more than memorizing formulas and doing calculations. Math involves:

• Highly practical and hands-on problems and skills
• Rich problem-solving activities in collaboration with your peers
• Some problems that will stretch your understanding to the abstract and theoretical
• Using technology to develop, demonstrate and communicate your mathematical understandings

Math 6

Operations with numbers. Your child will convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers, learn about and use integers, and understand the meaning of ratio and percent. They will multiply and divide decimal numbers, and perform operations with whole numbers using order of operations. Your child will use variables, graphs, and tables to show number patterns.

Math in Motion: Fractions and Space at Telus Spark this April.

In grade seven students will continue to build on the mathematical knowledge and skills they have developed so far.  Students will explore the relationships between numbers and operations by examining divisibility rules; solving problems with fractions, decimals and percent; and adding and subtracting integers.  Students will expand their algebraic reasoning skills by solving one and two-step equations, and developing formulas for finding the perimeter and area of various shapes. They will analyze data sets by creating line and circle graphs, and by determining the mean, median, and mode.

In math this year, students continue to explore the integer number system through the lenses of conceptual understanding, problem solving, and numeracy. The topics below are used to guide their learning:  -Estimate square roots of numbers -Solve problems involving percents greater than or equal to 0% -Express percents as fractions and decimals -Solve linear equations involving integer coefficients and constants -Use tables, graphs, equations and words to describe number patterns -Represent 3-D objects as nets and in different views -Determine the surface area of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms and cylinders -Develop and apply formulas for the volume of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms and cylinders -Understand congruency of polygons -Interpret graphs critically
