Welcome to Grade 7 Math

Welcome to Grade 7 Math!

It’s been great fun meeting and working with your children. They are a wonderful bunch!

We have started our first unit which includes the Cartesian Plane and an introduction to problem solving.

7B has completed Worksheet 3

7A is working at completing Worsheet 2, questions 2-4

Here are copies of the worksheet!

2016-worksheet-1-introduction-to-the-cartesian-plane

2016-worksheet-2-problem-solving-and-cartesian-review

2016-worksheet-3-translations

We have also spent time reviewing and practicing basic math facts, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Some students have mastered these skills, while others are still working at it. Extra home practice (5-10 min. each day) for the latter students is very important. You may want to use some flash cards or check out the attached worksheet for apps and computer websites you may which to try out. If your son or daughter has had difficulties memorizing their facts please contact me (email: hjanzen@westgatemennonite.ca, or phone: 204-795-9721). We will see what adaptations we can put in place.
