Math Skills: Seventh Grade

Seventh Grade Your seventh-grader will increasingly:

• Be expected to do all basic mathematical functions (add, subtract, multiply and divide) quickly and accurately.

• Become well-acquainted with fractions, decimals and percents. He should know how to figure out how much a 15 percent tip is, for instance, without much strain.

• Estimate, rather than have to solve a mathematical question to the decimal point. For instance, he'll "round up" from $3.80 to $4.00 in order to figure out the tip.

• Be introduced to geometry and will develop a more sophisticated understanding of algebra. He'll organize data in ways to make sense of statistics and probability. The cognitive ability to categorize information, which starts to develop at this point, will help in other course work, too.
