7th Grade Pre-AP MathematicsWelcome to 7th grade pre-AP mathematics! This is essentially an 8th grade class with only some 7th grade material included. Those who are ready by the end of the year will move on to Algebra the next school year. It is expected that anyone who enters this class has successfully mastered approximately 75% of the 7th grade curriculum in previous years.This is a pre-AP class so higher level thinking will be a part of class each and every day. Our focus will include real numbers, similarity and dilations, proportions, slope, functions, triangles (including Pythagorean Theorem), equations, inequalities, geometry, data analysis, probability, and personal financial literacy. Homework will be assigned most every day.Additional PracticeIf you need additional practice, I have two sites for you.This is a subscription site but it does offer some free problems each day.RemindI keep the website that you are currently in updated on a regular basis. I encourage you to check this resource daily.I will also use Remind to send notifications. Click on the link for instructions.

On Wednesday, October 18 we took notes related to writing equations in slope intercept form
The assignment is the Lesson 6 Extra Practice worksheet as well as page 239 (1-7). you may work directly on the worksheet but the bookwork must be on notebook paper. Use your notes, the book, and the online videos from ConnectEd (your book online) as a guide. This assignment is due by the end of the period on Friday, October 20.
I did not pick up page 199 and page 207 yet. That will be turned in early in the period of Thursday, October 19.
I will be absent again Thursday and Friday (I appreciate the thoughts and prayers many of you have spoke of regarding my mother). Tutorials will resume Monday morning at 8:15 as usual. Remember, you may also attend the principal's study hall in the library at 8:15 each morning.
Our test is Wednesday, October 25. On Friday, the first review will be given at the end of the period. It is due by the start of the period Tuesday.
On Monday we took notes regarding proportional relationships and direct variation. It is recommended that the assignment is started Monday as homework. On Tuesday, class time to continue the assignment will be provided with a subsitute. The assignment is due at the start of the period on Wednesday.
Page 199 (1, 3, 4 ,9)
page 207 (1-7, 9, 10, 18)
As usual, your work is to be on notebook paper. You may use the grids provided in the book though for the few graphs that are required.
We describes how the slope of a line relates to similar triangles.
We corrected yesterday's assignment. Anyone who needs a second chance may complete page 183 (1-8)
We did not take "notes" although the book does offer some decent examples. The assignment is page 191 (1-4). You may work directly in the book this time. Please DO NOT tear out the page.
We will work with Imagine Math tomorrow. You are welcome to bring headphones is you wish.
Create a situation and resulting page similar to the samples.
If your last names begins with A-M, then create a proportional situation.
If your last name begins with N - Z, then create a non-proportional situation.
Choose an item, a price, and if needed, a starting fee for your situation.
Use graph paper and use a straightedge.
Read pages 170 and 171
We discussed yesterday's work with inequalities. This was brief during second and third periods due to an assembly.
The bonus assignment of Lessons 4 and 5 Homework Practice was provided. This will replace the lowest daily grade. This is optional. Those who complete it are to turn it in Monday.
The first review was provided. Time will be given on Moday to work on much of the paper. It needs to be finished by the start of the period Tuesday.
The test is Wednesday.
Remember to click on the date to see the attachment.
We continued to solve multi-step equations.
Complete page 437 (1-9). You are to complete any 5 of the 9 problems. Notice that only questions 4 and 5 will have answers of either "no solution" or of "all real numbers."
If you click on the date you will find the bell ringer and the notes.
We took a test today. Check for grades in Skyward.
The test will be briefly looked at in class tomorrow. Students may also view the test and receive help on missed problems at 8:15 many mornings (I do have a meeting tomorrow though). Anyone who earned lower than a 70% will have until Wednesday, September 27 to complete a retest outside of class.
We have no homework.
We reviewed for tomorrow's test.
Review 2 with the key is attached.
I worked out each problem from review 2 in a YouTube video:
Review 1 with key is posted on September 15.
The folder will be turned in tomorrow:
Front Pocket: Reviews 1 and 2
Back Pocket: Old, graded homework
Real Number System 9/5
1.2 Powers and Exponents 9/6
1.3 Negative Exponents 9/7
Scientific Notation Graphic Organizer
1.4 Scientific Notation 9/8
1.5 Roots Handout 9/11
1.5 Roots 9/11
1.6 Estimate Roots 9/13
The review round 1 was worked on in class. Most problems should be finished by now. What is not, is homework.
Notice that the first key is included (except for question 30)
Review round 2 is due Tuesday. Class time will be provided unless the questions regarding the first review takes too much time.
The reviews are excellent indications of what to expect of my tests.
The test is Tuesday.
The notes are due Tuesday.
