Instruction, Practice and Games for Math 7 SOLs

This site is developed and maintained by the 7th grade math teachers at Colonial Heights Middle School. Its purpose is to provide links to instruction, practice, and games related to all of the VA Math 7 SOL's (2009 version).  Available to anyone with Internet access, this site can be used by students in school and at home for assistance with homework, practice, and review.  While the SOL's are listed in numeric order, notice that we cover this material in a different order (see the column labeled "when do we first cover this").  The "Year at a Glance" page lists the SOL's in the order we teach them with our planned schedule. This site is a "work in progress", begun in the summer of 2011.  Please contact Mrs. Dortch with questions or comments:
