**Classroom Expectations**

November – December Content:

**Grade 6** – We will:

*Find percent of a given number**form equivalent division problems.**Compare and order decimal numbers**Divide decimal numbers (“over-over-up” rule)**write decimal numbers in expanded form.**use Pi (the number of diameters that can fit along a circumference) as a special constant**divide by a fraction (multiply by reciprocal)**round decimal numbers**simplify fractions using cancellation**find least common denominator**divide by 10 and 100 (shift decimal left one or two places)*

**Grade 7** – We will:

*investigate data, making box & whiskers plots, stem and leaf plots, and finding the mean, median, quartiles and range.**apply the distributive property [ a(b+c) = ab + ac ]**find quotients with repeating decimal parts**review changing from fraction form to decimal to percent and vice-versa**review over-over-up rule for division of decimal numbers**find unit rates and sales tax, extend to unit conversions**review exponents and work with powers of 10, extend to scientific notation**add and subtract mixed measures*

**Pre Algebra** – We will:

*Study data, graphical representations, central tendancies**Study geometric shapes, points, lines, planes, angles, perpendicular, parallel, special angle relationships, simple polygon names and diagonals**Work with fractions (add, subtract, multiply, divide, greatest common factor (GCF), least common multiple (LCM)**extend to simplifying algebraic fractions (those with a variable)*

**Algebra** – We will:

*continue simplifying rational expressions (have variables in the denominator) using the power of power rule along with the other rules of exponents.**work with ratios and percents along with the cross product rule to simplify/ solve*

- cancel out GCF to solve ratio problems
- using cross products,
- use slope formula, slope intercept form and point slope form to graph and write equations
- review data tendencies (mean, median, mode and range) and misleading graphical representations
