# Math – April 29 – bisectors (7) and prisms review (8)

This week the grade 7’s are completing their bisectors work with asssignment 8.4 while the grade 8’s are completing their unit on measurement of prisms.

Note: The grade 8’s are having a unit final quiz this Friday covering surface area and volume of rectangular, triangular and cylindrical prisms.

Gr. 7 Assignment: Grade 7’s are to complete assignment 8.4 (all questions).  Be sure to watch the video below closely to learn how to do all the examples from this assignment.

Gr. 8 Assignment: Grade 8 students have a cumulative unit quiz on surface area and volume of prisms this Friday.  To prepare Gr. 8’s are to review all measurement of prisms lessons and to complete the unit review and the practice test to prepare.  The specific assignment is…

-unit review: 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15

-unit practice test: suggested to complete this but it is optional

Note: for more instruction on these concepts see the videos in the past lessons on measurement of solids.

# The Rise Of Skywalker Episode IX

There is a new Star Wars movie that is coming out and the movie is the last one in the Star Wars Trilogy and the Star Wars movie is coming out in December 2019 It is going to be awesome hopefully it is not going to be like the force awakens and last Jedi hopefully it will be good ans then I will be so happy Disney actually used there Brain. So you are probably wondering why i am talking so strange well i am mad at Disney that they ruined Star Wars they shall suffer for this outrage.

# The Little Prince – Ch. 16-17

The Little Prince – Chapter 16-17 responses.

1. Why would adults not believe you if you told them that all the world’s people could fit in a 20×20 mile field?  What would make them believe you? What does that tell you about adults?
