Units of Study for Compacted 6/7
Unit 1: Rational Numbers & Equations Students apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. They use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. Students learn to solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations. Unit 2: Proportions & Probability In this course, students analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems. They use random sampling to draw inferences about a population. And draw informal comparative inferences about two populations. Unit 3: Shapes & Angles Students draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them in this course. They solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measures, areas, surface areas, and volume. |
The following standards are emphasized during all units of study
The eight Standards for Mathematical Practice are: - Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
- Model with mathematics
- Use appropriate tools strategically
- Attend to precision
- Look for and make use of structure
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
