### Mathematics Curriculum

GOMATH is the new math curriculum we are using this year. I am REALLY excited to use this curriculum because there are countless on-line resources that come along with it. I have set up a free on-line account for your child at my.hrw.comThis on-line resource provides additional practice activities, step-by-step help and video tutorials for each lesson! If you need additional help with this please let me know.

SIMPLE SOLUTIONS: In addition to GOMATH, students will be working with Simple Solutions based off of 6th grade standards. This will provide students with an opportunity to re-learn and practice key concepts that they may have forgotten over the summer. Using Simple Solutions as homework will provide the maximum amount of "in-class" instruction to be focused on 7th grade content! It is a great research-based resource that will provide a continuous review of key content crucial to 7th grade success!

### ~Week-at-a-Glance~12/4/17 - 12/8/17

RATIOS AND PROPORTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS 7.RP

Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

1. Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios oflengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units. Forexample, if a person walks ½ mile in each ¼ hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction ½ / ¼ miles per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour.

2. Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.

a. Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., bytesting for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.

b. Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships.

c. Represent proportional relationships by equations. For example, if total cost t is proportional to the number n of items purchased at a constant price p, the relationship between the total cost and the number of items can be expressed as t = pn.

d. Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate.

3. Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent error.
