 Gr 7 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
Practice Quizzes
 multiple choice quizzing For students who want to test their understanding,, these short M/C quizzes are available. They're taken from material in our primary resource, Math Focus 7. Click the unit theme, listed below as the current focus, and select topic to begin.
Mathletics
All students will receive a license for the Mathletics website. The site can operate as an important and helpful supplement to classroom activities. Students needing to shore up current or prior learnings are strongly encouraged to use it.

Current Theme  Operations with Fractions
OK, here we go. The Fractions unit is one of three where we focus directly on partial value, those values between whole numbers. The other two units are Percent and Decimal Operations. Some students experience difficulty in this area. Problems sometimes show up when students lack confidence with divisibility rules or background concepts of multiples and factors. If this is true for you, some review is in order. In this unit we will continue on from last year's concepts and will compare, order and perform operations on fractions.
Check out these two videos. The first describes the easy method to create fractions with like denominators. The second uses a slightly trickier method but it's the better way for many questions.
