7th Grade Homeschool Math Curriculum
We at Time4Learning view ourselves as partners with parents in ensuring that students finish middle school with the skills they need to be successful in high school level courses. For mathematics, in particular, that means providing a standards-based program that is focused on the major math concepts while using many different types of multimedia tools to engage students and inspire a greater interest in mathematics.
What Do 7th Graders Learn in Math?
A seventh grade math curriculum should cover all the math strands, not just arithmetic. The major math strands for seventh grade curriculum are:
- Number sense and operations
- Geometry and spatial sense
- Ratio and proportional relationships
- Data analysis
The ideal math curriculum for 7th grade should be based on these standards while engaging students with fun and varied activities.
