You know you are going to be faced with the same hurdle – 7th grade math worksheets – only this time you are doing more advanced topics than those you encountered in the 6th level.  Actually, there’s just a bit of an addition that’s going to happen.  Meaning, some of the things you’ve learned from math 6 are carried over to the 7th level, some of these are even repetitions or reviews of topics back a year ago.

7th Grade Math Worksheets – Generalizations Of Past Concepts

But there are really new concepts that are somehow alienated from the topics a year ago, little different topics but advanced.  For instance, there’s Geometry part dealing with the figures – segments, rays, angles, parallel lines, parallelograms, quadrilaterals, etc. – that you have learned in the 6th.  This time around, you will take up generalizations about them.  So, instead of just counting the angular measures and trying to illustrate these figures, your worksheets will be filled with general statements, axioms, theorems and proving assumptions or theories.

An Example

Let us take parallel lines in grade 6.  They form pairs of equal angles when these lines are cut or intersected by another line.  As part of your worksheet exercises, you will be asked to show or prove that indeed these pairs of angles are equal in measure.  Conversely, you will have to show that two lines are parallel, given that some angles are either supplementary or equal in measure.

That sort of stuff is an example of new topics ahead.  It’s going to make your head spin, like it did to me, but there’s a clean way out of this predicament.

7th Grade Math Worksheets – Start Ahead

7th Grade MathThat is the way to do it – work out some of the coming math loads while you have free time.  While the 6th grade concepts are fresh in your mind, do some advanced learning.  Some of the important questions that you should ask while tackling new topics are:

  • What does the new topic mean?  What are the new terminologies that are used for this section of the book or manual?  What is the coverage of these new topics?  In short, define clearly these new topics.
  • What are the theorems, postulate, kinds of exercises, and types of questions in this section?  What is the standard way of solving these problems?  What should I expect the teacher to ask of me?  What are the given items for each type of problems?  Do I have to reviews past concepts as preparation for learning these new topics?

The Topics In Brief Overview

7th Grade MathAbove, I mentioned about parallel lines.  That example is a part of Geometry learning.  Apart from this part, you will have to study about similar triangles and congruent triangle.  A special section in Geometry is devoted to studying right triangles and non-right triangles (properly called oblique triangle).

Probability and Statistics is another main topic.  This one tackles the methods by which we gather data and interpret data.  Your teacher will be talking a lot about percentages, predictions and central tendencies in this part of the study.

You will also deal with relations and functions.  This is where you will have to graph lines, circles, parabolas, hyperbolas and so on and so forth.  Study how to graph these figures as early as you can because the concepts in this part of the study you can use when you go to college.

I wouldn’t like to tax your mind more.  What I have mentioned here is about 75% of the things you will be dealing with.  The 25% will come naturally in the course of your discussions.

Remember to take things in your stride.  Relax.  Hurdling 7th grade math worksheets is easier if you will approach the task this way.
