7th Grade Math Posters
We help you sum up major topics and concepts in a single page. These can be super helpful for all your students. It is also a great idea to review these with students before you post them. These will help students cement (pun intended; see image) major topics. Print all these posters out for your grade 7 classrooms. All of the posters are aligned with the standards, as you will see below. You will find 2 posters dedicated to each standard. We did our best to take the topics in different directions.

- Mathematical Terms - In mathematical terms a number is rational if you can write it in an a/b form, where a and b are integers. All fractions are of that form.
- Fractions to Decimals - You can divide to convert a rational number to a decimal. We divide the numerator by the denominator to reach our answer.
- Jenna and Kristy Favorite - Solving math problems doesn't need to be difficult. You need to analyze the information you have and determine the best way to quickly come to an answer.
