Useful Technology Tools

StudyPug
Grade 7 Math help videos with step-by-step solutions.

This is a useful website that has a variety of interactive questions and problems relating to all the strands and expectations of the grade 7 curriculum.

Math Gizmos
This website has interactive tools (gizmos). Each tool allows students to manipulate the gizmo to see its effects (e.g. change fraction quantities to see change in ratio of coloured tiles/non-coloured tiles)

Strand 1: Number Sense and Numeration: Writing Out A Decimal In Words
Khan chooses an appropriate number (with tenths, hundredths, and thousandths) and breaks it down by adding the words together. (twenty thousand + five tenths + seven hundredths). Example is highly effective because he does not reveal the full word, but rather guides the student towards coming up with the word.

Strand 2: Measurement: Area and Perimeter
How to calculate perimeter and area of a square and rectangle

Strand 3: Geometry: Plotting on the Cartesian Plane
This video shows how to plot a point on the Cartesian plane. It gives good step by step instructions Classifying Triangles (Gangam Style):
A fun video about classifying different types of triangles. Students will enjoy the music and learn all about triangles.

Strand 5: Data Management and Probability: Theoretical and Experimental Probability
All work is done on a single screen, different examples are considered (probability of picking a certain dog breed out of a group of mixed dogs, probability of rolling a standard die and getting less than 3, probability of picking a coloured ball out of a basket of balls) - examples all have real-world applications, and explanations are as simple as possible.
