Enroll in Grade 7 Mathematics with Dolphin STEM Academy
Mathematics is the study of the patterns around us. In this course, you will learn more
about geometry, statistics, and probability. Geometry is a branch of mathematics that
uses formal methods of thinking to show relationships between points, lines, surfaces,
and solids. Statistics and probability are closely related subjects. In statistics, you will
practice collecting and analyzing numerical data to make decisions. Probability is the
study of the likelihood that an event will occur. For example, what is the likelihood that
you will win a spelling bee if there are 40 participants? Knowing more about these three
disciplines will help you solve problems you encounter every day.
By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:
Solve problems that involve scale drawings of geometric figures.
Construct geometric shapes with traditional tools and with technology to satisfy
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface
area, and volume.
Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population.
Compare two populations using their measures of center and measures of
Interpret statistical data, identify the reasoning presented for that data, and
determine if the argument is accurate or valid.
Understand that probability is a measure of the likelihood that a chance event will
Compare expected probability to relative frequency and explain any discrepancies.
Find the probability of a compound event by identifying all the possible outcomes
surrounding the event.
Design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events.
