# Math – April 27 – gr7’s bisectors gr8’s Dividing mixed numbers

This week we are extending our geometry studies with the Grade 7’s looking at bisectors and the Grade 8’s studying the volume of cylinders.

The Grade 7 Assignment: Grade 7’s will complete all questions in assignment 8.3 on constructing perpendicular bisectors.

# Math – April 12

Today the grade 7’s and 8’s are working on a common assignment dealing with dividing fractions.  Fractions are one of the largest hills to cross when it comes to Math in the middle years.  Certain assignments are shared across grade 7-8 so students gain additional exposure over the 2 years in class.  This allows them greater opportunity for mastery of concepts over a two year period.

Grade 7-8 will complete assignment 3.5 covering questions 3-14.  Students will adjusted work will complete #’s 3-9

20.04.20 – grade 8 dividing whole numbers and fraction – 3.5
