    7th Grade Learning Objectives
    Book 1
    Accentuate the Negative
    1.  Students will use number lines and other manipulatives to add, subtract, multiply, and divide positive and  
         negative numbers.

    2.  Students will extend their understanding of the coordinate grid to include all 4 quadrants.

    Book 2
    Stretching and Shrinking
    1.  Students will determine that similar figures have the shape, congruent angles, and a scale factor.
    2.  Students will use the properties of similar triangles to solve applied problems.

    Book 3
    Comparing and Scaling
    Students will create and solve proportions using scale factor.

    Book 4
    Variables and Patterns
    Students will crate tables, graphs, and equations for various sets of data.

    Book 5
    Say it with Symbols
    1.  Students will identify the 9 number properties which include:  Associative Property of Addition, 
         Associative Property of Multiplication, Distributive Property, Commutative Property of Addition,
         Commutative Property of Multiplication, Multiplicative Identity, Additive Identity, Multiplicative,
         Inverse, Multiplicative Identity.
    2.  Students will use the distributive property to write expressions in expanded and factored form.

    Book 6
    Samples and Populations
    1.  Students will measure central tendency, such as median and mode, to make predictions about various
    2.  Students will organize data sets using the following:  histograms, stem and leaf plots, bar graphs,
         and box and whisker plots.

    8th Grade Learning Objectives
    Book 1
    Looking for Pythagoras
    1.  The students will calculate and estimate square and cube roots.
    2.  Students will use the Pythagorean Theorem to find missing side lengths of right triangles.

    Book 2
    Moving Straight Ahead
    1.  Students will make tables, graphs, and equations of linear relationships (linear relationships increase or 
        decrease at a constant rate).
    2.  The students will learn y=mx+b, where b is the y-intercept and m is the slope of the line.
    3.  Students will solve linear equations.

    Book 3
    Growing, Growing, Growing
    1.  Students will make tables, graphs, and equations of exponential relationships (Exponential relationships
         increase or decrease by a constant multiplier).
    2.  The students will learn where a is the y-intercept and b is the growth or decay factor.

    Book 4
    Frogs, Fleas, and Painted Cubes
    Students will make tables, graphs, and equations of quadratic relationships.

    Book 5
    Filling and Wrapping
    1.  The student will learn how to calculate the surface area and volume of 3-dimensional figures.
    2.  The student will be able to apply formulas for calculating surface area and volume to solve real-
         world problems.

    Book 6
    Shapes of Algebra
    1.  Students will solve systems of linear equations using both graphing and symbolic techniques.
    2.  Students solve and graph linear inequalities.
