8th Grade Mathematics
The PowerTeaching curriculum for Grade 7 focuses on four main critical areas:

1.use rate and ratio reasoning to solve proportional thinking problems,
2.use all rational numbers (whole, fraction, decimal, percent, and integer) in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division computation problems,
3.calculate geometric measures involving circles and cylinders, and
4.gather, analyze, and present data based on a random sampling of a population and use the data to make predictions.

The Grade 7 PowerTeaching curriculum also includes instruction on secondary math concepts:

1.use fractions and decimals to add complexity and realism to ratios and two-step equations, and
2.investigate chance and probability.

PowerTeaching for Grade 7 continues to build student proficiency with the Standards for Mathematical Practice:

•Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
•Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
•Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
•Model with mathematics.
•Use appropriate tools strategically.
•Attend to precision.
•Look for and make use of structure.
•Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
