Dear Students and Parents,

Please find the first term assessment syllabus and details below:

 Grade 7 Criteria-wise units Criteria Units to be assessed Criterion A: Knowing and Understanding Unit 1 – World of Numbers Unit 2 – Journey into the unknown Unit 3 – How do we measure up? Criterion B: Investigating patterns Unit 2 – Journey into the unknown Criterion C: Communicating Unit 2 – Journey into the unknown Criterion D: Applying mathematics in the real-life contexts Unit 1 – World of Numbers Unit 2 – Journey into the unknown Unit 3 – How do we measure up?

Unit wise topic list:

Unit 1: World of numbers

1. Number System
2. Factors and Multiples
3. Highest Common Factor and Lowest Common Multiple
4. Prime Factorization Method
5. Operation with Integers
6. BEDMAS rule
7. Squares and square roots
8. Cube and cube roots
9. Ratios and Percentages

Unit 2: Journey into the unknown

1. Understanding Algebraic Expressions
2. Key words in Algebra
3. Constructing expressions
4. Like and Unlike terms
5. Simplifying expressions
6. Understanding equations
7. Solving equations
8. Constructing and solving equations
9. Substitution into an expression and Formula
10. Story writing (expression and equation)
11. Expanding and factorizing
12. Identifying algebraic patterns and extending them, creating general rule

Unit 3: How do we measure up?

1. Lines and Angle Properties (Angle Pairs of Parallel lines) and Basic Terminologies
– Angles on a straight line add up to 180 degree
– Angles around a point add up to 360 degree
– Vertically Opposite angles
– Corresponding angles
– Alternate angles (Interior and Exterior)
– Co-Interior angles
– Supplementary angles
2. Triangles (Classification, Angles, Properties)

• Area and Perimeter of Square, Rectangle, Trapezium, Parallelogram and Composite figures
• Area and circumference of Circle
• Volume and surface area – Cube, Cuboid
• Relation between Volume and Capacity

Assessment Details:

• Paper will consist of short, medium and long response questions.
• The assessment will be divided into 2 components

(i) Component 1: Pen and Paper assessment to assess Criteria A & B – 60 minutes

(ii) Component 2: Pen and Paper assessment to assess Criteria C & D – 60 minutes

• Questions will be asked based on the Criteria of individual unit assessed during Summative Assessments. Eg: If a Unit-X has catered to learning objective A- strand (i), (ii) and objective B-strand (i) only, then the questions from this unit will only be asked in Criteria A and B.
• All the resources shared on Curricle(subject resource sheet and central presentations), Google Classroom as well as the worksheets provided(online or in hard copy) will be considered as a part of the syllabus and will be sufficient to prepare for the assessment.

Important notes:

• Calculators will not be allowed.
• The entire paper is to be written in the space provided in the question paper booklet. Neither additional supplementary will be provided nor any extra paper will be considered as a part of your solution.
• All the instructions will be available on the cover page of the question paper booklet. Please read these instructions before attempting the paper.
• Sharing of any resource will not be allowed.
• You need to carry your personal stationery.

In case of any query/concern, please feel free to approach any of the Grade – 7 Mathematics educator.

Thanks and regards,
