Unit 1: Linear functions and graphs

Students learn to represent linear function as input/output tables and plot them on coordinate graphs. They solve linear equations with one variable based on mixed operations and values.

Unit 2: Geometry

Students learn to identify different types of quadrilaterals, measure missing angles in geometric shapes and recognize two-dimensional perspective of solid figures.

Unit 3: Measurement

Students learn to compare temperatures in Celsius and Fahrenheit. They learn to apply their knowledge of fractions and decimals to do unit conversion.

Unit 4: Data sampling

Students learn basic concepts of data sampling.

Unit 5: Exponents

Students are introduced to the concept of exponents as an alternative representation of multiplication expressions.

Unit 6: Coordinate grid

Students learn more about coordinate grids. They learn to use the grid to calculate distance between points. They continue to learn more on how to use coordinate grids as maps.

Unit 7: Probability of compound events. Use of permutations, combinations and factorials

Students learn about various types of compound events like opposite, exclusive and overlapping events. They also learn to calculate factorials, permutation and combinations in calculation of probability.

Unit 8: Area and perimeter - rectangles, trianlges, quadrilaterals

Students learn about perimeter and area of different geometric shapes, including rectangles, triangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, etc.

Unit 9: Surface area and volume

Students are introduced to surface area.They learn how to calculate surface area for rectangular prisms. They also learn to calculate volume of complete and partial rectangular prisms.
