Math – May 19 – Algebra and Squares and Roots

This week the Grade 7’s are working on a review of the basics on Algebra while the Grade 8’s  are working on a review of squares and roots.

Grade 7 Assignment:  Grade 7’s are working on 6.1 this week.  They are to complete all questions in assignment 1.1.

20.05.19 grade 7 – solving equations – 6.1

Here are some additional videos to help you out.

 

Grade 8 Assignment:  Grade 8’s are working on 1.1 and 1.4 this week.  They are to completes 1.1 #’s 5-12, 16 and 1.4 #’s 4-11, 15

20.05.19 grade 8 square numbers – 1.1 1.4

Math – May 11-15 – Gr.7-8 Probability Revisit

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.

20.05.011 grade 7-8 – Probability – 7.6 alternative

PART B – Since our assignment is rather easy as a review we are doing two parts.  The link below leads to 4 problem solving questions to be solved.  Mr. Ewert will be going over one question at the beginning of each study hall.  So, if you are struggling at all, be sure to come to study hall to see how each question is completed.  Both assignments are to be attached to your quiz on Monday, May 18

Math May 4 – gr.7 Angle Bisectors Gr.8 Solving Problems With Fractions

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, since we don’t have geometry kits (most of us that is), be sure to watch the second video on how to do this using the online tool at https://www.geogebra.org/geometry

19.04.29 grade 7 – constructing angle bisectors 8.4-27ljguk

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.

20.05.04 grade 8 – solving problems with fractions – 3.8

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.

19.04.21 grade 7 – constructing perpendicular bisectors – 8.3-2bj78n8

Live video for this lesson was completed on the morning of April 27th.  The videos of this lesson are shared on the Math Channel of our Microsoft Teams page.  Please check there for the video lesson on how to do this assignment using the online tools provided.

Here is the follow up lesson on how to do #’s 4-5 and 8-9

Here is the link for a great hands on tool to do geometry on a pc or device.  It is the website I used to make the video lesson below.

The Grade 8 Assignment: Grade 8’s will complete questions 4 – 16 of assignment 3.7 – Dividing Mixed Fractions

20.04.24 grade 8 – dividing mixed numbers – 3.7

Live video for this lesson was completed on the morning of April 27th.  The videos of this lesson are shared on the Math Channel of our Microsoft Teams page.  Please check there for the video lesson on how to do this assignment using the online tools provided.

Math – April 20

This week we are going into spatial math with the grade 7’s entering geometry starting with parallel and perpendicular lines.  The Grade 8’s are working on more 3d geometry with.

The Grade 7 Assignment: Grade 7’s are working on assignment 8.1 and 8.2.  On 8.1 they are to complete #’s

19.04.12 grade 7 – parallel and perpendicular lines – 8.1-8.2-18jxzej

Below is the original lesson for this using pencil, paper, and geometry tools (feel free if you have those to do this the original way.  If you don’t have a geometry set I have made another video (below) that shows how to use this handy online tool to complete your assignment.  Note: I have not tested this on an iphone etc.  I anticipate it may not work on them.  However, a quick search on the app story reveals MANY options for apps you can use to do this, then take screen shots for you to use.  Or, you could try installing a browser that uses flash such as flashfox and then the link below should work for you even on an apple device.
