Grade 7

Mathematics

Curriculum Overview

Throughout this grade, in order to promote a positive identity as a math learner, to foster well-being and the ability to learn, build resilience, and thrive, students will apply, to the best of their ability, a variety of social-emotional learning skills to support their use of the mathematical processes and their learning in connection with the expectations in the other five strands of the mathematics curriculum.

Students learn how to cope with stress and manage complex challenges. Students learn to break down a task into smaller portions, make a plan and take it one step at a time.

The mathematics curriculum is divided into six strands:

  • Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Skills in Mathematics and the Mathematical Processes
  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Data
  • Spatial Sense
  • Financial Literacy

Complete the suggested activities using these resources and other TVO resources.

Suggested Activities

Complete these activities to consolidate learning across all curriculum strands.

  • Create your own definitions for 20 math words in the vocabulary list.
  • How does the probability differ if two marbles are drawn from a bag with or without replacement.
  • Research about the cost of borrowing and compare interest rates and fees for different types of accounts and loans to become more informed consumers.
  • Solve problems that involve proportions (for example, determining the percentage increase or decrease in the attendance of a show at the movies).
  • Use algebraic notation to show the relationship between variables, such as s = d/t represents the relationship between speed, distance, and time.
  • Use modelling for real-life situations, such as making predictions about future fundraisers based on the funds raised from past fundraisers.
