Today we are going out and visiting other Edublogger classrooms around the world. Click on the link below to find new classrooms of students that have been online just like you. Be sure to leave comments on blogs that you have read to let them know they have been read.
Be sure to also share a link from your blog and/or our class blog home page to invite them to come interact with our own blogs.
If you have had a great deal of trouble completing Problem Solving Set 7 then watch the video below for an instructional walk-through. This will help you to prepare for your Problem Solving test in the 2nd school-week of January (once we have completed set 8).
This first video is to explain how to do the first examples
This one has the real “meat and potatoes” of the lesson showing you how to attack those “working backwards” problems such as the marbles.
This week we are revisiting our algebra work to review and consolidate what we were learning last week. Students are encouraged to come in for extra help and to watch the additional videos below if they are in need of more help. This week grade 7’s are working on assignment 1.4 in the test and grade 8’s on 6.2. All questions are to to be completed prior to the due date morning with corrections made in order to prepare for the quiz that morning.
Today we are choosing from one of three articles to represent. Students will write an article summary based upon their article. They are to fill complete their summary either in formal handwriting or typed double-spaced. Once students have completed their work they are to attach a rubric filled out declaring their projected assessment.
Once their assignment is physically handed in they are to post it on their blog and then submit a link to their blog posting when submitting their assignment on Edsby.
Here are the assignment items for download and print:
