 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

This year brings extra considerations for Math. Due to our circumstances, we know that deficits will exist. We have been advised, rightly, to focus on Math and LA outcomes. We will do that. With two grades in the room, some independence will be needed. Diagnostics will help evaluate the current state of readiness for new learning.
7's  Some review is normal at the beginning. We begin the new learning with a series of handy, but critical tricks to determining divisibility. We will use those tricks to practice solving for multiples and factors. Students will put their scientific calculators to work working through multi step problems that require an understanding of order of operations.
8's A look at squares and roots to begin. We will apply this knowledge to one of the Space and Shape outcomes, finding the length of the hypotenuse.
