Course Overview

Welcome to the 7th grade Next Generation Standards for West Virginia Common Core. The material covered in this grade level is challenging yet exciting. The 7th grade curriculum has been broken down into four main goals. The first of these goals is to develop a strong foundation of proportional relationships and apply that knowledge to real world situations. The second goal is to develop number sense with rational numbers used to solve multi- step linear equations. The third is to problem solve with scale drawings, create geometric constructions and calculations with two and three dimensional shapes, and lastly being able to draw inferences from sample populations. 


Implementation of the Common Core State Standards and Objectives for Mathematics through engaging instruction coupled with rigorous learning activities and assessment is hard work. During the 2011-2012 school year, a dedicated group of WV classroom teachers worked collaboratively to study the Middle School Math standards, objectives and performance descriptors and designed quality units of instruction that encompass the content, skills and understandings reflected in this set of grade level standards. The units and lessons created by these teachers, model best practices in student engagement, provide rigorous learning activities and quality formative assessment opportunities that are the basis for this Media-rich course guide.
