Mathalicious' Grade 7 offering has 25 realworld math lessons, each with clear teacher instructions, highquality student activities, and attentionholding video clips and interactives (ideal for wholeclass viewing). Clearly correlated to a number of Common Core standards, engaging for kids, and easy to use for teachers, these lessons are a gem among an already sparkling site. Teachers may notice that a few lessons are also found in other middle school grade levels.
About to start a unit on percentages? Use the “Coupon Clipping” lesson to launch the topic. Even kids struggling with the math content will get engaged in the conversations as they share experiences and opinions. As you identify students who may need conceptual support, pull them aside for some smallgroup attention while the rest of the class continues to work on the related lesson (try “AppleCare a Day,” among others). Or, use the site’s everyday applications as an opportunity to truly check for understanding, at the end of a unit.

Expressions And Equations  
6.EE: Reason About And Solve OneVariable Equations And Inequalities.  
6.EE.7  Solve realworld and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers. 
Represent And Analyze Quantitative Relationships Between Dependent And Independent Variables.  
6.EE.9  Use variables to represent two quantities in a realworld problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and write the equation d = 65t to represent the relationship between distance and time. 
7.EE: Solve RealLife And Mathematical Problems Using Numerical And Algebraic Expressions And Equations.  
7.EE.3  Solve multistep reallife and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation. 
7.EE.4  Use variables to represent quantities in a realworld or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities. 
Use Properties Of Operations To Generate Equivalent Expressions.  
7.EE.2  Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, a + 0.05a = 1.05a means that “increase by 5%” is the same as “multiply by 1.05.” 
8.EE: Work With Radicals And Integer Exponents.  
8.EE.4  Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology. 
Geometry  
7.G: Draw, Construct, And Describe Geometrical Figures And Describe The Relationships Between Them.  
7.G.1  Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale. 
7.G.2  Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle. 
Solve RealLife And Mathematical Problems Involving Angle Measure, Area, Surface Area, And Volume.  
7.G.4  Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle. 
7.G.6  Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two and threedimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms. 
8.G: Understand And Apply The Pythagorean Theorem.  
8.G.7  Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in realworld and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. 
Ratios And Proportional Relationships  
6.RP: Understand Ratio Concepts And Use Ratio Reasoning To Solve Problems.  
6.RP.3  Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve realworld and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations. 
7.RP: Analyze Proportional Relationships And Use Them To Solve RealWorld And Mathematical Problems.  
7.RP.1  Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units. For example, if a person walks 1/2 mile in each 1/4 hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction 1/2/1/4 miles per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour. 
7.RP.2  Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. 
7.RP.3  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. 
Statistics And Probability  
6.SP: Develop Understanding Of Statistical Variability.  
6.SP.2  Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape. 
6.SP.3  Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number. 
Summarize And Describe Distributions.  
6.SP.4  Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. 
6.SP.5  Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by: 
7.SP: Draw Informal Comparative Inferences About Two Populations.  
7.SP.4  Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw informal comparative inferences about two populations. For example, decide whether the words in a chapter of a seventhgrade science book are generally longer than the words in a chapter of a fourthgrade science book. 
Investigate Chance Processes And Develop, Use, And Evaluate Probability Models.  
7.SP.5  Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event. 
7.SP.6  Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its longrun relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability. For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200 times, but probably not exactly 200 times. 
7.SP.7  Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy. 
7.SP.8  Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation. 
8.SP: Investigate Patterns Of Association In Bivariate Data.  
8.SP.1  Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association. 
The Number System  
7.NS: Apply And Extend Previous Understandings Of Operations With Fractions To Add, Subtract, Multiply, And Divide Rational Numbers.  
7.NS.1  Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram. 
7.NS.3  Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.
