Grade 7 - Number Sense and Numeration

Standard 7.NSN.2 - Practice subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.

Included Skills:

Operational Sense

• divide whole numbers by simple fractions and by decimal numbers to hundredths, using concrete materials (e.g., divide 3 by 1/2 using fraction strips; divide 4 by 0.8 using base ten materials and estimation);

• use a variety of mental strategies to solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions and decimals (e.g., use the commutative property: 3 x 2/5 x 1/3 = 3 x 1/3 x 2/5, which gives 1 x 2/5 = 2/5; use the distributive property: 16.8 � 0.2 can be thought of as (16 + 0.8) � 0.2 = 16 � 0.2 + 0.8 � 0.2, which gives 80 + 4 = 84);

• solve problems involving the multiplication and division of decimal numbers to thousandths by one-digit whole numbers, using a variety of tools (e.g., concrete materials, drawings, calculators) and strategies (e.g., estimation, algorithms);

• solve multi-step problems arising from real-life contexts and involving whole numbers and decimals, using a variety of tools (e.g., concrete materials, drawings, calculators) and strategies (e.g., estimation, algorithms);

• use estimation when solving problems involving operations with whole numbers, decimals, and percents, to help judge the reasonableness of a solution (Sample problem: A book costs $18.49. The salesperson tells you that the total price, including taxes, is $22.37. How can you tell if the total price is reasonable without using a calculator?);

• evaluate expressions that involve whole numbers and decimals, including expressions that contain brackets, using order of operations;

• add and subtract fractions with simple like and unlike denominators, using a variety of tools (e.g., fraction circles, Cuisenaire rods, drawings, calculators) and algorithms;

• demonstrate, using concrete materials, the relationship between the repeated addition of fractions and the multiplication of that fraction by a whole number (e.g., 1/2 + 1/2 + 1/2 = 3 x 1/2);

• add and subtract integers, using a variety of tools (e.g., two-colour counters, virtual manipulatives, number lines).
