Today we are taking our linear equations from the previous weeks and putting them into action in different formats including tables and graphs.

Note: seeing as we are currently in remote learning students may either choose to create their own graph paper using this link.  Or they can use an online graph creating website at this link  for their assignment.  Grade 8’s: when using this link you will need to input your positive and negative values for making a cartesian plane.  If you wish to do them digitally online, then you can use this link here.

5 Min. Mystery

Today we are solving a 5 min. mystery.  These mysteries come from https://www.5minutemystery.com/ where people submit their mysteries for signed up members to solve.  In this assignment you are reading a 5 min. mystery, using 2 colours of higlighters to note the incriminating and exonerating evidence (we will discuss in class what these terms mean).  Then you will write down your notes from your highlights to determine who the culprit is in the mystery.  You will then write an account fully explaing what you think happened based on the evidence that you have collected.  Here are the materials you will need posted below.

Recipe Writing Assignment

Today you will be writing a recipe. To do this you will first need to look at some sample recipes online.  Here are links to 3 recipes to consider.  Look for aspects that you think are part of writing a good recipe.  What do they include that draws the reader in?  What makes them clear/easy to understand.  Could you follow this recipe?



Links to examples of well-written recipes

Burger recipe

Fetttuccine Alfredo

Once you have read through a few, take a look at the assignment below.  Fill out the sections regarding the recipe you would like to share.  It is likely something that you have with your own family.  Likely you don’t already have a recipe from home (many homes don’t use formal recipes).  This means that you will likely have to look up a recipe that is for the type of food that you like.  Then you will borrow the facts from that recipe and make it your own by including your own thoughts, experiences, and ideas (likely using the template in the link below too).

21.12.15 Recipe-Writing_Assignment

Now that you have done all this work, get together with your small group to discuss what a quality recipe should have.  You will create your own rubric based on the criteria that your group (and the class) come up with.  If you need more inspiration, here is a link to a webpage describing how to write a quality recipe.
