Mathematics Curriculum Framework - November 2000
for Grades 7-8
||Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement|
||Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements|
Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:
||Select, convert (within the same system of measurement), and use appropriate units of measurement or scale.
||Given the formulas, convert from one system of measurement to another. Use technology as appropriate.
||Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and apply formulas and procedures for determining measures, including those of area and perimeter/circumference of parallelograms, trapezoids, and circles. Given the formulas, determine the surface area and volume of rectangular prisms, cylinders, and spheres. Use technology as appropriate.
||Use ratio and proportion (including scale factors) in the solution of problems, including problems involving similar plane figures and indirect measurement.
||Use models, graphs, and formulas to solve simple problems involving rates, e.g., velocity and density.
Exploratory Concepts and Skills
for Grades 7-8 and Single-Subject Courses
- Select and apply techniques and tools to accurately find length, area, volume, and angle measures to appropriate levels of precision.
- Investigate formulas to determine the circumference and area of circles, and the perimeter and area of polygons.
