 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 N7.5 Addition/Subtraction with Fractions; Gr. 8 N8.4 Multiplication/Division with Fractions
7's  Fractions
This theme is the first of three related to partial value. We begin here and later spend some time on related concepts, decimals and percent. In Gr. 7 the focus is comparison, ordering and addition/subtraction. It's not unusual for some students to experience difficulty in this area. Typically, it indicates issues with numeracy and an ability to use strategies for factors and multiples. If a student has a solid grasp of divisibility rules, for example, steps to problem solution are easier.
8's  Fractions
For Gr. 8, you continue where you left off last year. The new fraction learning is actually easier in some ways than the step up last year. You still need to rely on some basic strategies but the process is definitely more straight forward. There are two parts: how to do it and why it works
