7th Grade Algebra

Semester 2 Final Exam Study Guide KEY

7th Algebra Update 5/27/19

Last week, we applied quadratic functions to help solve real-world problems including vertical motion models and other quadratic relationships. We then reviewed for and took our unit 8 test. This week, we will review for our semester 2 final exam on Tuesday and then take the exam on Wednesday. Thursday will be our last math class due to the end of year activities for 7th graders on Friday. I hope everyone has a fantastic summer!

7th Algebra Update 5/19/19

Last week, we focused on the characteristics of the graphs of quadratic functions. We explored the effects of the a- and c-values, vertex, axis of symmetry, intercepts, and were introduced to vertex form. This week, we will continue working with quadratic functions by graphing and applying quadratic functions to solve different problem scenarios. We will look to take our unit 8 test on Friday. We will then take our semester 2 final exam during the last week of school.

7th Algebra Update 5/12/19

Last week, we explored factoring nonmonic trinomials, reviewed, and took our quiz over factoring and solving quadratic expressions and equations. This week, we will dive into the graphs of quadratic functions and look into their many characteristics.

Quiz 7.12, 8.02, 8.04 Review Material KEYS

7th Algebra Update 5/5/19

Last week, we explored two alternative methods to quadratic equations. We first explored completing the square and then were introduced to solving using the quadratic formula. This week, we will explore factoring nonmonic trinomials. We will then take a quiz over these topics.

7th Algebra Update 4/28/19

Last week, we continued to practice factoring and solving using the zero product property. We then reviewed and took our unit 7 test on Friday. This week, we will begin our last unit of the year by exploring two new ways to solve quadratic equations. We will begin with completing the square and then explore the quadratic formula.

Unit 7 Review Materials

Quiz 7.09-7.11 Review Material KEYS

7th Algebra Update 4/14/19

Last week, we explored the characteristics of polynomials and refined our skills performing operations with polynomials. We then took a quiz on these topics on Friday. This week, we will dive deeper into different types of factoring including factoring the difference of two squares, monic trinomials, and perfect square trinomials.

7th Algebra Update 4/21/19

Last week, we explored different ways of factoring by looking at patterns of multiplication. We explored how to factor a difference of two squares and monic trinomials. This week, we will continue to explore types of factoring by looking at factoring perfect square trinomials. We will also practice how to determine what type of factoring to use and how to know if something is fully factored. We will look to take a quiz over these topics on Tuesday and then review and take a test on these topics later in the week.

7th Algebra Update 4/7/19

Last week, we continued to work with polynomials by exploring the powerful zero product property and the concept of factoring. We took a quiz over these topics and performing operations with polynomials on Friday. This week, we will learn more specific vocabulary and characteristics of polynomials. We will also refine our skills with multiplying polynomials. We will then look to take a quiz over these topics.
