7th Grade Algebra Skills
Prior Standards Implementation
The standards listed below have been replaced by a newer set of standards.
Please go to Current 7th Grade Math Standards for current resources.
Extend geometric and numerical patterns.
- Analyzing Numeric and Geometric Patterns of Paper Pool - an activity from Illuminations, the NCTM site.
- Calculating the nth Term - how to develop a formula that can be used to calculate these terms
- Create your own pattern - Drag shapes to create a pattern - ( Instructions on how to use this page in your classroom )
- Mystery Operations - In this activity the computer makes up a mystery operation, and you have to figure out what the operation is. You give the computer two numbers to calculate, and it tells you the answer.
- Number Cracker - Guess what number comes next in the pattern?
- Number Cruncher - Lists input and output in a table and will not let the user attempt to guess the rule on without at least having two data points.
- Patterns in Geometry - online quiz
- Patterns - Figure out the patterns, if you can!
- Spy Guys Interactive - Summarizing/Extending Patterns - Lesson 8
- Whole Number Cruncher - Similar to "Number Cruncher" but only generates multiplication and addition functions to avoid outputting any negative numbers
- Writing Rules for Patterns - online quiz
Apply function rules.
- Ambleweb Function Machine - students identify what process was used to produce a sequence of numbers (twelve processes available)
Extend rate charts to solve real-world problems.
Generalize patterns in data represented in tables and graphs.
Represent mathematical statements and real-world situations using symbols.
- Spy Guys Interactive - Balancing Equations - Lesson 11
- Symbols of Inclusion - simplify each expression and choose the correct comparison symbol
- Translate Sentences into Equations
- Translating Word Problems - lesson with links to practice types of word problems
- Verbal Reasoning - Challenges students to clearly understand a problem and think through the solution!
- Word Problem Practice - Problems in addition, subtraction and more (Warning: many pop-up ads on this site)
Evaluate algebraic expressions given the value of two or more variables.
- Spy Guys Interactive - Balancing Equations - Lesson 11
Solve one-step linear equations.
- Function Machine - Students investigate very simple functions by trying to guess the algebraic form from inputs and outputs.
- Graphing Linear Equations - an Internet project
- Linear Equation Solvers - Practice Linear Equations! Improves your test scores!
- Linear Equation Solver from Algebra.com
- Linear Equation Solver - a pop-up window allows users to specify the number of equations
- Linear function - move your cursor to the green block to select step 1
- Linear function and Graph - move your cursor over the green block to see lesson 1 or lesson 2
- Linear Function Machine - Students investigate linear functions by trying to guess the slope and intercept from inputs and outputs.
- Positive Linear Function Machine - Students investigate linear functions with positive slopes by trying to guess the slope and intercept from inputs and outputs.
- Solving addition and subtraction equations - Try a workout of 10 problems. If you get at least 8 correct on your first attempt, then you're ready to move on. If not, review "In Depth" and try again.
- Solving Linear Equations
Solve real-world problems involving one-step linear equations.
Identify whole numbers that satisfy a given one-variable inequality.
Select a scatter plot to represent data presented in tabular form.
- Step-by-step Internet4Classrooms module on how to produce a scatter plot using Excel
Interpret graphs which represent rates of change.
- Rate of Change: Connecting Slope to Real Life - a lesson on using slope to find the rate of change accompanied by graphs and explanations
- Rate of Change Practice Problems - nine practice problems (including a graph to interpret) followed by an answer key
- Using the X and Y Intercept to Graph Linear Equations - This follow up to the first lesson above deals with linear equations written in standard form rather than slope intercept form
- Finding the X Intercept and Y Intercept to Graph Standard Form Equations - five practice problems to practice using what was learned in the lesson above, followed by an answer key
National Library of Virtual Manipulatives
Algebra (Grades 6-8)
