 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

Current Theme  Space and Shape SS7.2
This unit touches on themes of measurement in geometry. During Gr. 6, students considered the concepts of area, perimeter and volume using squares and rectangles. This year, we significantly extend the concept to parallelograms, triangles and circles. They're introduced to several new terms in addition to their prior learning. These include a handful of new formulas for area and concepts about the nature of a circle. Some memorization is needed. For this unit, calculator use is expected.

 Parallelograms A = B x H
 Triangles A = ½B X H
 (Circles) A = PiR2
 circumference of a circle C = Pi x D
