7th Grade MAT Targeted Standards Domain (NS) The Number System Cluster: Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.

MAT-07.NS.02.a Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (–1)(–1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

Student Learning Targets:

Reasoning Targets

I can relate the properties of multiplication of fractions to the multiplication of rational numbers.

I can interpret products of rational numbers by describing real world situations.

Skills Domain (Performance) Targets

I can use the rules for multiplying signed numbers to determine the sign of the product.
