About the Course
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics were designed to identify what students are expected to learn at each grade level. The grade 7 mathematics standards include four focus areas, including one on understanding proportional relationships and rates. The lessons in this collection were designed to help you teach the proportional relationships concepts your seventh grade students are expected to know. Our engaging videos and expert instruction from experienced educators form the core of the individual lessons, increasing students' learning in easy-to-swallow chunks. The lessons explore ratios and proportionality topics including:
- Unit rates and fraction ratios
- Proportional relationships
- Word problems with proportions
Each lesson is a complete package with an interesting and educational video or text lesson which uses fun graphics and real-world examples to engage and hold attention. You can have your students can take the lesson quiz to check understanding and measure readiness to proceed to the next lessons and chapters, and you can use the chapter tests included in each group of lessons to gauge your students' synthesis of key concepts in each standard and as standardized test practice.
Unit Rates & Ratios of Fractions (CCSS.Math.Content.7.RP.A.1)
Standard: Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units.
Assign these lessons to students to increase their understanding of proportions, calculate ratios and proportions, find unknown proportions, and calculate unit rates including ratios of fractions.
Proportional Relationships (CCSS.Math.Content.7.RP.A.2)
Standard: Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.
The lessons in this chapter explore proportional relationships between quantities, constants of proportionality, the use of equations to represent proportional relationships, and graphing proportional relationships.
Solving Proportion Word Problems (CCSS.Math.Content.7.RP.A.2)
Standard: 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.
Use these lessons to help reinforce classroom instruction related to real-world problems of calculating interest, sales commission, tips, price markups, taxes and discounts, and percentage changes. Students are given a brief introduction to multistep ratio and percent problems.
