7th grade mathematicians are finishing the year with an exciting, hands on unit where they learn how to measure the surface area and volume of three-dimensional objects. Filling and Wrapping is a study of number sense and some more geometry. Students need to meet the following learning targets for this unit:

1. I can calculate the surface area and volume of prisms and cylinders.
2. I can figure relate surface area and volume for common figures, especially optimization of surface area for a fixed volume.
3. I can describe the effect of changes in dimensions on the surface area and volume of a 3-D object.
4. I can find the circumference and area of a circle.
5. I can find the volume of cones and spheres.

7th grade mathematicians head back to a more in depth study of linear relationships in our current unit Moving Straight Ahead. Students need to meet the following learning targets for this unit:

1. I can recognize a linear or proportional relationship that is described in table, graph, or equation form.
2. I can create a table, graph, and equation to represent a given linear relationship.
3. I can find the rate of change (slope), x-intercept, and y-intercept for a linear relationship described by a table, graph, or equation.
4. I can find the slope between two points on a line and interpret slope in terms of rate of change.
5. I can solve problems about linear relationships using information given in a contextual setting, a table, a graph, or an equation.
6. I can find sets of ordered pairs to match a linear relationship given in a table, graph, or equation form.
7. I can simplify an algebraic expression by combining like terms or applying the distributive property.
8. I can solve multi-step equations using symbolic method, tables, and graphs.
