The seventh graders have been studying percents in Math class.  We have changed percents to decimals and fractions, and then changed a decimal to a percent.  Once we learned these concepts, we were able to compare fractions, percents, and decimals when they are written in different forms.  We will look at solving percent problems using the percent proportion and the percent equation.  We will also study percent of increase or decrease, discounts, mark-ups, and simple interest.

The seventh graders have started studying ratios and proportions in Math class.  They have learned about what is a ratio, rates, unit rates, and what a proportion is.  We will continue in the chapter and study how to write a proportion, how to solve a proportion using different methods, and determining the slope of a line when given a graph. Encourage your child to see me for any additional help.

The 7th graders have finished our chapter on solving one and two step equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  We are moving on to Chapter 4-Inequalities.  We will learn about inequalities and how to solve one and two step inequalities using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  We will continue using the skills that we learned in Chapter 3 as the actual solving of equations and inequalities are very similar.

The 7th graders have finished our chapter on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing rational numbers.  We are moving on to Chapter 3-Expressions and Equations.  We will learn how to combine like terms to simplify expressions and how to solve one and two step equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  All valuable skills as we continue throughout the year in Math.

The 7th graders have just finished Chapter 1 in Math on Integers.  We learned new vocabulary connected to integers which we then used to compare and order integers, add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers.   We are not by any means finished with integers.  The 7th graders will continue to use all of this knowledge not only this year in Math, but many years to come!

We have now started Chapter 2 on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing rational numbers.  Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction.  Since an integer can be written as a fraction, it is a rational number.  So, the same rules that we learned in Chapter 1 will be used in Chapter 2.
