Below is a list of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) that every seventh grade student in Texas is expected to have learned by the end of their 7th grade year. TEKS in RED are TEKS that have already been taught in class. Students keep track of their mastery of each TEK after tests and quizzes on their star charts and personal Math Trackers. If they have not yet mastered (with at least an 80%) a red TEK, students may come in at lunch or after school to practice and re-assess their mastery.

use concrete and pictorial models to solve equations and use symbols to record the actions; and
7.5B
formulate problem situations when given a simple equation and formulate an equation when given a problem situation.
