Math 7 is based on the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards for 7th grade. Content standards are organized into five domains: Ratios and Proportional Relationships, The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Students gain a deeper understanding of math concepts by narrowing their focus to fewer topics. They master content through reasoning opportunities and engaging activities providing a deeper understanding. Students successfully completing this course will be ready for Math 8. Madison City Schools implements a mastery approach for this course meaning students are expected to demonstrate at least 75% on each indicator.
To successfully master the skills outlined in the Alabama 7th Grade Math Course of Study. Students successfully completing this course will be prepared for Math 8.
