# Mathematics Department

In Grade 6, instructional time will be focused in four critical areas:

• connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems;
• completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers;
• writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and
• developing understanding of statistical thinking

In Grade 7, instructional time will be focused in four critical areas:

• developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships;
• developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations;
• solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and
• drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

In Grade 8, instructional time will be focused in three critical areas:

• formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations;
• grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships;
• analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem
