Otter's
7th Grade (PreAlgebra) Math Schedule
Click here to download this schedule in .doc format or click here for .docx format. If you don't have Microsoft Word, you can use either of these free programs: Open Office or Libre Office.
Click here to return to Guest Hollow's website.
This is the math schedule I developed for my 7th grader. My goal is to make math fun and interactive. Just because we are heading into middle school math, doesn't mean that Otter is "too big" to play around with math. I chose Holt Mathematics Course 2 because it is rigorous, it has proven results and because of the humorous videos for each chapter (by the Edward Burger who does the Thinkwell videos). I also like the wealth of resources available via the "One Stop Teacher's CDRom".
I do NOT plan to get through this in 1 school year (well, probably not). We are going to take our time and really work on building a solid foundation before moving on to algebra. Past experience has shown me that Otter is not one to be rushed through math. We are going to take our time to really work through and understand each concept before moving into a fullblown algebra course.
Besides the things listed in the schedule, Otter is also doing Teaching Textbooks Prealgebra. (Yeah, we always do 2 math programs!) We may move ahead in TT and that is not reflected in my math sequence listed below.
My planned math sequence is
the following: 
Alternate sequence (if he
is able to move through the material faster) 
7th grade: prealgebra 8th grade: prealgebra 9th grade: algebra 10th grade: algebra II (or
geometry) *depending on whether or not he plans to take the PSAT in Oct. of
11th grade 11th grade: geometry (or
algebra II) *He may take algebra II and geometry concurrently in the 10th
grade as my daughter did. 12: grade: precalculus 
7th grade: prealgebra 8th grade: algebra 9th grade: algebra II 10th grade: geometry 11th grade: precalculus 12: grade: calculus (or
statistics or other advanced math) 
Gizmos (scheduled below) are accessed by subscription through www.explorelearning.com. You can also get a free 30 day trial or try each activity with a "free pass" of 5 minutes. *You may want to access the desired gizmo, click on the instructions, SHUT DOWN the Gizmo so you can read the instructions and THEN spend the rest of the time in the Gizmo (so you don't use up all the time reading the instructions).
Books, videos, songs and activities help introduce concepts and make them more handson and/or fun. :)
The Mental Math in Junior High book adds in a mental math component for the year. The lessons are short with cartoon drawings and very practical!! This is an important skill that is often overlooked!! You really need to understand math, in order to do it mentally!

Lessons (main text)
I
didn't schedule in the extra worksheets and practice pages. We're going to
play it by ear and I will assign everything on an as needed basis. How
quickly he is able to firmly grasp concepts will determine the speed at which
we move through the textbook. 
Books, Workbooks, Extra Activities
*Some
activities are from workbooks I have on my shelf at home. I don't recommend
purchasing them as I only schedule in a few activities.

All of the following are going to be optional. I'll use them if we want a
little extra or to add some fun into our math day.

Mathematics Course 2, Grade 7:
Holt Mathematics OneStop Planner CDROM for Holt
Mathematics, Course 2 I'm ordering the onestop planner
as it has almost everything you need on it. I'm also ordering the premier
online edition. I'm not ordering a hard copy text. Holt Online store with all
options 
(To be used throughout the
year) 
Mental Math in Junior High /
Grades 79 
Cyberchase videos are
available at Discovery Streaming and also on YouTube and PBS Kids. A few are also on Netflix (streaming). Cyberchase descriptions
quoted from here. BrainPOP can be accessed
via subscription. A SINGLE
USER homeschool subscription is $99. You do not need a multiuser
subscription unless you have multiple children who will be using BrainPOP at
the same time on different computers. Some of the linked BrainPOP movies are
FREE through Glencoe. I link to the freebies whenever possible. Besides videos, Khan
Academy also has exercises where students can earn ranks, points, badges etc.
Otter spends about 15 min. a day practicing at Khan Academy. 

Watch on the first day of
math.
