Class 7 Math is an important stage as it forms the basis for future math topics at a higher level. Below is a detailed topic wise** CBSE Class 7 Math Curriculum** for students and teachers likewise.

**Number System (50 hrs)**

**Knowing our Numbers: Integers**

This chapter covers three topics.

- Multiplication and division of integers. Here Division by zero is meaningless.
- Properties of integers- which includes the additive, multiplicative, commutative, associative and distributive properties.
- Word problems- these are basically application based problems.

**Fractions and Rational Numbers:**

This chapter contains a large number of small subtopics.

- Multiplication of fractions.
- Fraction as an operator.
- Reciprocal of a fraction.
- Division of fractions.
- Word problems involving mixed fractions.
- Introduction to rational numbers.
- Operations on rational numbers.
- Representation of rational number as a decimal.
- Word problems on rational numbers.
- Multiplication and division of decimal fractions.
- Conversion of units.
- Word problems- Application based problems. May include HOTS questions.

**Powers:**

This is a relatively small chapter with larger significance in the long run.

- Exponents only natural numbers.
- Laws of exponents (primarily there are three laws).

** **

**Algebra (20 hrs)**

**Algebraic Expressions:**

Algebra in seventh standard consists of only one chapter having a large number of sub-topics which need to be studied in detail.

- Generate algebraic expressions involving one or two variables.
- Identifying constants, coefficient and powers.
- Like and unlike terms, degree of expressions.
- Addition and subtraction of algebraic expressions.
- Simple linear equations in one variable with two operations.

**Ratio and Proportion (20 hrs)**

This is one of the few chapters that we end up using throughout our life. Its various subtopics include:

- Ratio and proportion.
- Unitary method, consolidation and general expression.
- Percentage- an introduction.
- Understanding percentage as a fraction with denominator 100.
- Converting fractions and decimals into percentage and vice-versa.
- Application to profit and loss.
- Application to simple interest with time period in complete years.

**Geometry (60 hrs)**

**Understanding Shapes:**

This is one of the easiest chapters in the curriculum with minimum hours required, its sub-topics include.

- Pairs of angles- all the properties related to angles and simple proofs.
- Properties of parallel lines with transversal.

**Properties of triangles:**

For a person who loves geometry this is a very interesting chapter all the subtopics only increase a person’s enthusiasm. The sub-topics included in this chapter are.

- Angle sum property of a triangle.
- Exterior angle property of a triangle.
- Sum of two sides of a triangle.
- Pythagoras Theorem.

**Symmetry:**

Symmetry is again a very interesting and easy chapter. We basically learn about rotational symmetry, and operations of rotations. Later we are introduced to figures that have reflection and rotation symmetry.

**Congruence:**

Congruence is another interesting chapter in geometry where we learn the definition of congruence and then go about finding and proving figures to be congruent based on a set of Criteria’s.

**Construction:**

For a person who likes to draw will find this chapter interesting as a lot of tools such as scale, protractor and compass are used to draw parallel lines and triangles based on given properties.

**Mensuration (15 hrs)**

Mensuration is an important topic as it takes a lot of time and its integration in the math we study in higher classes is much greater. New sub-topics such as area between two rectangles and two concentric circles.

**Data Handling (15 hrs)**

Data handling is a very important topic which encompasses various topics such as statistics and probability both which make the backbone of math in higher classes. The sub-topics included in this chapter are:

- Collection and organization of data.
- Mean, median and modeof ungrouped data.
- Constructing bargraphs.
- Feel of probability using data through experiments.

We hope that this detailed topic wise CBSE Class 7 Math Curriculum is useful for you.

Remember this is only what you do in class. To be good at math it matters what you do on your own.
