Mr. Duggan- 7th Grade Mathematics
Seventh grade mathematics builds upon and extends previous concepts including ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, geometry, and statistics and probability. A solid mathematical foundation of these topics will be achieved through rigorous activities and projects where students will learn through problem solving. Students will be engaged in real-world investigations designed to enhance their thinking skills with a focus on logical reasoning and critical analysis.
