Math Review – Fractions and More

This week we are spiraling back to fractions.  Grade 7’s are reviewing fractions, decimals and percents where Gr. 8s are dividing decimals. Whilst students are reviewing these past concepts we will also be doing interventions based on our current MRLC results to ensure students are growing past their “sticking points” in math.

Grade 7 are working on questions 1-4, 6-8, 11-15, and 18 with Grade 7 adapted option being 3’s 1-4, 6-8, 12-15

19.04.08 grade 7 – unit review fractions decimals percents – p.120-10o50qu

The Grade 8 Assignment: Grade 8’s are working on 3d geometry.  They will be completing #’s 4-15 in assignment 4.7.

Grade 8 assignment is Surface Area of Right Cylinder (4.7) #’s 4-17.  Grade 8’s may recall that we started a bit of this prior to Spring Break but now we are reviewing and consolidating our prior learning.  Be sure to watch the video lesson accompanying this assignment.  We will have a conference on Microsoft Teams regarding this content on Tues. April 14th.

Math – March 14 – Probability

PART A – This week we are reviewing our probability.  The Gr.7’s and Gr.8’s have a common assignment this week.  Complete #’s 1-7.

To review ways of expressing probability you can access our former lesson on assignment 7.5 below

This week we are doing assignment 7.6 and where we are determining the probability of events.  We will do all of this in person in class, however, if you still need some extra help then check out the lesson on this from last year.  Students are assigned all numbers in this assignment.

20.05.11 grade 7 8 assignment – probability tree diagrams – 7.6

PART B –  As previously mentioned, the Grade 7s and 8s are doing a common assignment this week.  Part B of the assignment will be from the Grade 8 textbook as shown below.  This takes our probability one step further.

You are completing assignment 7.4 – 4 – 14

20.03.09 grade 8 – solving problems involving independent events – 7.4

Note: Grade 8’s may find it helpful to review the previous lessons on probability.

For even more help you can check out the additional video lessons from Grade 7 – assignemnt 7.3 on probability.

Math for March 1

This week the Grade 7’s are working on outliers of data and how they effect averages whilst the grade 8’s are looking at probability of independent events.

Grade 7’s

You are completing assignment 7.3 – all questions

20.03.09 grade 7 – the effects of outliers on an average – 7.3

Grade 7-8’s

You are completing assignment 7.4 – 4 – 14 (grade 7s only complete #s 4-8 and #10.

20.03.09 grade 8 – solving problems involving independent events – 7.4

Note: students may find it helpful to review the previous lessons on probability.

Today in Science – Optics

Today we are attempting to explain what the heck happened with the arrow and the glass yesterday.

Step 1) follow this link to our quizlet vocabulary online and practice getting to know and learning about some of the basic concepts

Step 2) Watch Bill Nye to get some more info that may help us

Step 3) Watch the video below to help you out with your explanation by observing it again with your newfound knowledge.

Then we started watching Bill Nye the Science Guy – Optics

Here is the work sheet from class and the video itself.
