Math Review – Fractions and More – Math for April 12, 2020

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 Suggested Materials for Study: p. 120 review of Fractions, Decimals, and Percents. Complete all questions. Practice test on page 122. Be sure to watch the video lesson accompanying this assignment (coming to a computer screen near you before Monday).  We will have a conference on Microsoft Teams regarding this content on Tues. April 14th.

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.

Problem Solving Set 7 – Video For Completion

If you have had a great deal of trouble completing Problem Solving Set 7 then watch the video below for an instructional walk-through.  This will help you to prepare for your Problem Solving test in the 2nd school-week of January (once we have completed set 8).

This first video is to explain how to do the first examples

This one has the real “meat and potatoes” of the lesson showing you how to attack those “working backwards” problems such as the marbles.
