Domain 7.EE  Expressions and Equations 
Solve reallife and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations. 
Lessons 
7.EE.3 
Solve multistep reallife and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form;
convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For
example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar
about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.

Use variables to represent quantities in a realworld or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities. 


7.EE.4.a Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter

7.EE.4.b Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and
interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you
want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions.

Domain 7.SP  Statistics and Probability 
Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population. 
Lessons 
7.SP.1 
Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations
about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends
to produce representative samples and support valid inferences. 
Independent Events 
7.SP.2 
Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of
interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions. For example, estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly
sampled survey data. Gauge how far off the estimate or prediction might be. 
Probability Goodies 
Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models. 
Lessons 
7.SP.5 
Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event. 
Introduction to Probability 
7.SP.6 
Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the
chance process that produces it and observing its longrun relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the
probability. For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200 times, but probably
not exactly 200 times. 
Probability Goodies 
7.SP.7 
Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to
observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy. 


7.SP.7.a Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all
outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events. For example, if a student is selected at random from a class, find the
probability that Jane will be selected and the probability that a girl will be selected. 
Introduction to Probability 

7.SP.7.b Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process. For example, find the approximate probability that a spinning penny will land heads up or that a tossed paper cup will land
openend down. Do the outcomes for the spinning penny appear to be equally likely based on the observed frequencies? 
Introduction to Probability 
7.SP.8 
Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation. 


7.SP.8.a Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of outcomes
in the sample space for which the compound event occurs. 
Mutually Exclusive Events
Independent Events
Dependent Events
Conditional Probability 

7.SP.8.b Represent sample spaces for compound
events using methods such as organized lists, tables and tree diagrams. For an event described in everyday language (e.g., “rolling double
sixes”), identify the outcomes in the sample space which compose the event. 
Sample Spaces
Probability Worksheets 

7.SP.8.c Design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events. For example, use random digits as a simulation tool to approximate the answer to the question: If 40% of
donors have type A blood, what is the probability that it will take at least 4 donors to find one with type A blood?
