This week we are beginning unit 2. Students will learn the following algebra vocabulary words:
- Algebraic expression
- Numerical expression
We will practice using the School Yourself website. Students will need to use their username and password from class.
1) What is a variable? (A number we don’t know) – Go to Algebra, then Solving Equations, and Solving for unknowns – or https://schoolyourself.org/learn/algebra/number-line-solve
2) How do we solve expressions? (Substitute a number for a variable) https://schoolyourself.org/learn/algebra/evaluate
3) What is a coefficient? (The number in front of a variable) https://schoolyourself.org/learn/algebra/coefficients
4) How do we simplify expressions? (Combine like terms) https://schoolyourself.org/learn/algebra/simplify
This week we are reviewing decimal operations and applying our knowledge to completing problems with positive and negative decimals.

This week we will apply what we have learned about adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers to completing problems with fractions. Any classwork that is not finished in class is homework.
Monday: Simplifying Fractions
(Review finding prime factors if you forgot!)
Tuesday: Multiplying and Dividing Fractions
Wednesday/Thursday: Adding and Subtracting Fractions
Here are two ways to find common denominators: Easy common denominator (ECD)
or Least Common Multiple (LCD).
Friday: Fractions Assessments – Use your notes, classwork and videos above to review.
This week we are learning to use the order of operations with absolute values and to multiply and divide integers. Here are some video resources:
Order of Operations
Multiplying and Dividing Integers
Students who make less than an 80% our last assessment should watch the adding and subtracting video and complete my recovery packet. Next they should come in for tutoring and re-take the quiz. Students can always come to tutoring if they need help with classwork/homework or feel they don’t understand a topic. My tutoring is on Tuesday afternoons until 5 pm and Thursday mornings from 8:15 to 8:45.
This week we are reviewing positive and negative integers and absolute value. We are learning to add and subtract integers on a number line and with rules. Here are some of the resources we are using this week:

Welcome to seventh grade math! I am excited about our classes as we begin the new school year. I will give out a syllabus with more information soon, but for now I want to make sure you have my contact information:
Mrs. Jibilian – email: [email protected] phone: 770-222-3758 Extension 1709
I provide tutoring for students on Tuesday afternoons between 4:30 and 5:30 and Thursday mornings between 8:15 and 8:45. Students are encouraged to attend tutoring if they are struggling on assessments or don’t understand the material.
This week we are continuing with skills practice to get ready for eighth grade. Here are links to the all the instructional videos we have been using to review and practice:
Types of Fractions
Fractions and Decimal Numbers
Using Prime Factorization to Simplify Fractions
Multiplying Fractions (use prime factorization)
Dividing Fractions (use prime factorization)
Intro to Exponents (if needed)
Exponents and square roots
Graphing on the Coordinate Plane
Monday – Students continued with basic skills practice. They are moving at their own rate. As they pass one skill, they move on.
Tuesday and Wednesday – Math Inventory Testing
Thursday – Using Prime Factorization to Simplify Fractions
