Math May 4 – gr.7 Angle Bisectors Gr.8 Solving Problems With Fractions

This week the grade 7’s are completing their bisectors work with assignment 8.4 while the grade 8’s continuing their work with fractions in the form of Word Problems

Gr. 7 Assignment: Grade 7’s are to complete assignment 8.4 (Questions 2-8).  Be sure to watch the video below closely to learn how to do all the examples from this assignment.  Also, since we don’t have geometry kits (most of us that is), be sure to watch the second video on how to do this using the online tool at

I would like to take a moment here to nominate myself for the “best thumbnails that preview youtube videos” award.  I think youtube TRIES to take the most ridiculous frames for the preview.

Grade 8 Assignment: Grade 8’s are continuing their work on fractions by by addressing them with word problems.  This makes it VERY IMPORTANT that students utilize, estimation, question review, and to ask themselves “is my answer plausible?” prior to moving on to the next question.  Gr. 8’s are to complete #’s 3-14.
