Insert a standard(s) below (include code). HIGHLIGHT the SKILLS that students need to be able to do and
UNDERLINE the CONCEPTS that students need to know.
MCC.7.NS.2 Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide
rational numbers.
MCC.7.NS.2a Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue
to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as 1 ) 1 )( 1 ( and the
rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
MCC.7.NS.2b Understand that integers can be divided, provided that the divisor is not zero, and every quotient of integers (with
non-zero divisor) is a rational number. If p and q are integers then

MCC.7.NS.2c Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers.
MCC.7.NS.2d Convert a rational number to a decimal using long division; know that the decimal form of a rational number
terminates in 0s or eventually repeats.
MCC.7.NS.3 Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.

Computation with positive and negative numbers is often
necessary to determine relationships between quantities.
Models, diagrams, manipulatives and patterns are useful in
developing and remembering algorithms for computing with
positive and negative numbers.
Properties of real numbers hold for all rational numbers.
Positive and negative numbers are often used to solve
problems in everyday life.

WICOR:
multiply and divide rational numbers (NS.7.2)
interpret products of rational numbers in real-life contexts (NS.7.2)
convert a rational number to a decimal using long division (NS.7.2)
identify terminating or repeating decimal representations of rational
numbers (NS.7.2)
solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four
operations or rational numbers (NS.7.3)
use and apply order of operations to solve problems involving rational
numbers (NS.7.3)

Ultimately, students should solve other mathematical and real-world problems requiring
the application of these rules with fractions and decimals.
In Grade 7 the awareness of rational and irrational numbers is initiated by observing the

result of changing fractions to decimals. Students should be provided with families of
fractions, such as, sevenths, ninths, thirds, etc. to convert to decimals using long division.
The equivalents can be grouped and named (terminating or repeating). Students should
begin to see why these patterns occur. Knowing the formal vocabulary rational and
irrational is not expected.
