# First Semester

Goals for the First Semester

In the first semester of CC Mathematics 7, students will develop mathematical literacy that is needed to appropriately meet the rigors of the common core state standards.  It addresses key vocabulary and language goals that reinforce and enrich each unit while connecting with the standards and assessments.

In the first of the semester of CC Mathematics 7, students will learn the following topics that are Common Core State Standards based:

l Ratio and Proportions                                   l Rational Numbers and its Properties

¡ Unit Rates                                                         ¡ Absolute Value
