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

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.

Mid-Year Math Review

Each year we identify 3 key outcomes for each grade that greatly represent the foundational outcomes at each level.  The outcomes identified are shown below.  To help review these concepts the students have been provided with study packages that consist of previous quizzes from class as well as practice review work from the text.  We are going over all of these materials in class and video will be supplied of these review.  This will allow students a way to review independently using the provided materials on paper, the videos online, and help within the classroom.

In addition: students are being assigned further review materials from the text to help ensure they are prepared for the test next Friday.

Math Jan. 5

Today we are taking our linear equations from the previous weeks and putting them into action in different formats including tables and graphs.

Note: The video this week was unfortunately erased and so will not be included in this week’s materials.  Mr. Ewert is available during morning breaks and is more than happy to assist you to help in any way possible.

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

Here is another great video that can help.

 

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
