In Seventh Grade
In seventh grade, students solved real-world problems related to similar shape and scale drawings, converted between measurement systems using proportions and unit rates as well as wrote and solved equations related to the sum of angles in a triangle. Students also solved problems related to finding the volume and lateral and total surface area of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, rectangular pyramids, and triangular pyramids as well as determined the circumference and areas of circles and area of composite figures that contained various combinations of figures.
In Eighth Grade
In eighth grade, students will solve problems to find the volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres as well as use the formulas for lateral and total surface area to determine the solutions for problems involving rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, and cylinders. Students will also use the Pythagorean theorem including models and diagrams to solve problems and explain the effects of translations, reflections, and rotations on a coordinate plane.
