7th Grade Math focuses on four critical areas:¬† (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geoŪetri# cmnstructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

The seventh grade science curriculum, aligned with state standards, is designed to¬†provide students with a ‚Äúhands on‚ÄĚ approach, while fostering a scientific community¬†through cooperative learning groups. Students will be involved in inquiry-based¬†science, which will strengthen and reinforce student‚Äôs problem solving skills. The major units of¬†study are:

  • Cells
  • Genetics
  • Evolution
  • Ecology
