20.10.20 grade 7 – area of circles – 4.5

Grade 7’s – Your assignment is 4.5 #’s 1-7


Check out this video below that explains exactly how the formula for the area of circle was arrived at thousands of years ago (formula explained).

And here is a follow up lesson video on #4 as it often gives people a moment to figure out


20.01.20 gr 8 – surface area of a right triangular prism – 4.4

Grade 8’s – Your assignment is 4.4 #’s 4-10

Art – Zentangle

Today we studied how line can be used to express emotion, depth, and various effects.  We experimented with how there are many different types of line, and how lines can be used to create mood.

We observed zentangles.  Zentangles are made by using line and pattern. Students observe examples and created their own.

 Assignment: Students were asked to create their own zentangle using their new-found knowledge of line, and pattern.

Here I am going to tell u what my favourite youtube animators and giving u some information on them.

First my first animator that I watched was “The odd ones out”. the odd ones out is a anim8ed series of one guy (James) telling u about what happened during his life (actually thats what everyone is doing) James full name in James odd ones out Rallison he is 25 and he has two ✌ books.

Math Jan. 10

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.

Grade 7’s are working on assignment 1.6 in the text and completing numbers 1-8

19.01.15 grade 7 – graphing relations – 1.6-2jjbiak


Grade 8’s are working on assignment 6.7 in the text and completing numbers 4-13

19.01.15 grade 8 – graphing linear equations – 6.7-webak2

Here is a very helpful video for the grade 8’s
