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 N7.6 Integer Concepts with Addition/Subtraction; Gr. 8 N8.5 Multiplication/Division with Integers
7's  Integers
Nothing but addition and subtraction....but with a twist. Introduced for the first time is the concept of operations where terms may have a negative value. Whereas in the past addition always meant a larger value and subtraction a lower value, that is no longer true. Students will review the concept of negative numbers introduced in Gr 6 and then perform addition and subtraction operations.
This year, the concepts extend to multiplication and division. In some ways, it's easier than Gr. 7, as long as the understanding is present. The videos below will help.
