Today we are going to talk about the rise of city-states in Ancient Greece. Students will then respond by creating their very own Greek City state (Polis). Watch the videos below to understand what a city-state is and how/why they came to be in Ancient Greece.
The assignment will be provided in class and on the assignment on Teams.
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.
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.
Today we are watching some short videos that can be found in the files tab on the Science channel on Microsoft Teams. There are three of them. We are taking notes on the videos to use for studying for our Science – Light Unit final Test next week. Then, this afternoon we are studying our Electromagnetic Spectrum on Quizlet. Here is the link to the vocabulary.
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, if you wish to do some of the geometry in a digital way, be sure to watch the second video on how to do this using the online tool at https://www.geogebra.org/geometry
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.
