 7th Grade Math: It’s Not as Scary as You Think!

A lot of students get nervous when they hear they have to take 7th grade math. They think it’s going to be too hard and they’ll never be able to understand it. But that’s not true! 7th grade math is actually really interesting, and once you get the hang of it, it’s not that difficult. In this blog post, we’ll give you a brief overview of what you can expect to learn in 7th grade math. Hopefully by the end of this post, you’ll be a little less nervous about starting 7th grade math!

What You’ll Learn in 7th Grade Math
In 7th grade math, you’ll learn a variety of topics including:
-Integers and rational numbers
-Expressions and equations
-Geometry
-Statistics and probability

Integers and Rational Numbers
An integer is any whole number, positive or negative. So, for example, -5, 0, 3, and 10 are all integers. On the other hand, a rational number is any number that can be expressed as a fraction. So, for example, 1/2, 3/4, and 4/5 are all rational numbers. In 7th grade math, you’ll learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers and rational numbers.

Expressions and Equations
An expression is a mathematical phrase that can contain numbers, variables (like x or y), and operators (like + or -). For example, 3x – 5 is an expression. An equation is an expression that contains an equals sign (=). So, using our previous example, 3x – 5 = 0 is an equation. In 7th grade math, you’ll learn how to solve equations. This involves figuring out what the value of the variable (in this case x) should be so that the equation is true.
