 Gr 7 outcomes/indicators
 Gr 8 outcomes/indicators
Math has four broad themes, each of which has many specific skills. You can view them at the Ministry of Education's website. The categories are:
 Number  divisibility rules, relating positive fractions, decimals and percents, operations with integers
 Patterns and Relations  linear relations (algebraic expressions and equations), graphing
 Space and Shape  use of Pi, circles, polygons, 2D relationships  bisectors, perpendicular etc.
 Statistics and Probability  measures of central tendency (average), outliers, circle graphs, determining likelihood

Current Themes  Gr. 7 SS7.3 7.5 Geometry Concepts; Gr. 8 SS8.2 Prisms and Cylinders
7's  Transformational Geometry and Angles
This section requires the use of a geometry kit.
We're combining some related geometry concepts in this section. We begin by extending the understanding of coordinates by moving from the grid introduced in Gr 6 to the Cartesian grid. Last year, the grid had one section known as quadrant one. This year, it has four. During the unit, we learn to move or "transform" polygons from one location to another. The three changes are translations (slides), reflections (flips) and rotations (turns). In addition, we will work with creating bisectors of given angles and comparing angle against one another.
8's  Surface Area of Prisms and Cylinders
This section requires the use of a geometry kit.
Grade 8 extends the understanding of some 2D objects and extends it to their 3D counterparts. For this section, we focus only on right prisms (think boxes) and cylinders (think Pringles). The goal is to develop strategies that allow for the calculation of surface area.
