Syllabus - Grade 7

Grade 7 is where you’ll learn about algebraic modeling, connections between 2D and 3D shapes, and probability. The maths concepts taught in Grade 7 build on the foundation laid in Grade 6 - they enable you to explore applications from engineering to art.

1. Variables

Variables keep track of quantities that change such as position, size, and color. Here’s how a mixed Geometry + Ratios project (CCMS G.B.5 and RP.A.2c) is taught through variables:

Math learning outcomes

  • Variables
  • Angles
  • Rates
  • Equations

2. Functions

Functions make it easy to bundle related instructions together and to map inputs to outputs. Here’s how a mixed Geometry + Algebra project (CCMS G.A.2 and EE.B.4) is taught:

Math learning outcomes

  • Coordinate geometry
  • Transformations
  • Pythagoras' Theorem

3. Logic

Boolean algebra is the logical foundation for computers, and we use it to make decisions using conditional statements. Here’s how a Geometry project (CCMS G.A.3) is taught through conditional statements:

Math learning outcomes

  • Inequalities
  • Coordinate geometry
  • Transformations
  • Conic sections

4. Loops

Loops make it easy to repeat instructions according to set conditions. Here’s how a mixed Geometry + Ratios project (CCMS G.B.4 and RP.A.2) is taught through loops:

Math learning outcomes

  • Inequalities
  • Coordinate geometry
  • Ratios
  • Distance

5. Objects

Many applied maths problems involve bundling data together and presenting it to users, often through text. Here’s how a mixed Geometry + Algebra project (CCMS G.B.5 and EE.B.4) is taught through dictionaries and strings:

Math learning outcomes

  • Equations
  • Coordinate geometry
  • Rates

6. Lists

Lists enable us to keep related items in order, from high scores in a game to scientific observations. Here’s how a Ratios project (CCMS RP.A.1, RP.A.2c, and RP.A.3) is taught through lists:

Math learning outcomes

  • Ratios
  • Rates
  • Coordinate geometry

7. Classes

Classes are the blueprints for objects that bundle data together with the functions that operate on that data. Here’s how a mixed Geometry + Ratios project (CCMS G.B.5 and RP.A.3) is taught through classes:

Math learning outcomes

  • Angles
  • Ratios
  • Coordinate geometry
  • Vectors
