Telescoped Math 7/Algebra 8

7th grade is all about proportional relationships, and 8th grade is focused on linear relationships.



Learning Targets



Communication Goal

LT0: I can explain my thinking and respond to the mathematical thinking of others.

Semester 1

1.  2D & 3D Geometry


Approximate dates:

August - September

LT1.1: I can find measurements and justify formulas involving circumference, area of circles, volume of cylinders, surface area of cylinders, area of sectors of circles and arc length.

2.  Integers and Rational Numbers


Approximate dates: September - October

LT2.1: I can compare and calculate with positive and negative rational numbers including those with whole number exponents.

LT2.2: I can use the order of operations and algebraic properties to evaluate expressions containing variables and positive and negative numbers and create equivalent expressions.

LT2.3: I can graph and describe translations and reflections of figures on a coordinate grid.

3.  Ratios and Proportional Relationships


Approximate dates: November - December

LT3.1: I can use proportional reasoning to solve problems involving ratios, rational numbers & interest.

LT3.2: I can identify the features of proportional relationships and can distinguish between proportional and other relationships.

LT3.3: I can use proportional reasoning to solve problems using multiple representations (equations/inequalities/graphs/context/language/tables).

4.  Data and Probability


Approximate dates: December- January

LT4.1: I can use the mean, median and range to draw conclusions about data and make predictions.

LT4.2: I can display and interpret data in a variety of ways. (line plots, circle graphs, stem and leaf, histograms)

LT4.3: I can calculate probabilities and reason about probabilities using proportions.

Semester 2

5.  Equations and Solving


Approximate dates: January

LT5.1: I can evaluate algebraic expressions, including expressions containing radicals and absolute values, and justify the algebraic properties.

LT5.2: I can solve multi-step equations in one variable and justify the steps by identifying the algebraic properties used.

6.  Linear Relationships


Approximate dates:


 LT6.1: I can represent linear functions with tables, equations, graphs, context and language including identifying the slope and y-intercept.

LT6.2: I can represent and solve real-world and mathematical situations using linear equations and inequalities.

LT6.3: I can recognize that a function is linear if it is written in the form f(x) = mx + b and interpret the meaning of the y-intercepts and slope.

7.  Systems of Equations


Approximate dates:

 April - May

LT7.1: I can solve problems involving parallel and perpendicular lines in a coordinate graph.

LT7.2: I can solve a system of equations by using a graph, substitution, and elimination, and determine if the system has 0, 1, or infinite solutions.

LT7.3: I can model a context using a system of linear equations.

8.  Pythagorean Theorem


Approximate dates:

 May- June

LT8.1: I can classify real numbers as rational or irrational, and approximate the value of irrational numbers and locate them on the number line.

LT8.2: I can use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems involving right triangles, and find the distance between any two points on a coordinate grid.

LT8.3: I can find the distance between two coordinate points.
