# 7th Grade Math Textbooks for At-Home Practice

If your child could use some math lessons in addition to those found in the school textbook, you may want to consider some of the free resources available online. The following sites provide access to free math learning tools.

## AAA Math's Lessons

These written lessons can help your child better understand 7th grade math concepts, like positive and negative integers, scientific notation and equations with decimals. There are many categories within each math unit, so you may have to click through the different links a bit before finding exactly what you're looking for. Fortunately, the lessons come with an online problem generator, making it easy for your child to test his or her skills on each lesson before moving on.

The lessons vary in length, from a basic chart to several paragraphs. An example is usually included with each explanation to help your child visualize the concept. In the 'Introduction' section, you can find a progress report specifically designed for this website. So, your child can record his or her scores and the dates that he or she did each lesson.

## Purplemath's Algebra Resources

If your son or daughter is struggling with the basics of algebra, these thorough lessons may lend a hand. You'll find lessons divided into 'preliminary topics,' 'beginning algebra topics' and beyond, but these two sections will most likely be best suited to your 7th grader. Some of the topics discussed in the 'preliminary topics' section include fractions, rounding, geometric formulas and negative numbers. Each lesson is several paragraphs long and comes with several examples.

## Videos from Math Game Time

This site offers several different activities to help kids learn math, including video lessons, online games and printable worksheets. Videos are available on topics such as finding range, median and mode, finding supplementary angles, solving 2-equation word problems and solving algebraic expressions. In each video, you'll see a teacher standing before a whiteboard, explaining the topic in just a few minutes. The games deal with algebra, integers and decimals. Additionally, all the worksheets come with answer keys.
