Please note that students are in two classes in Mathletics.  One class is grade level materials and the new second class in called Canadian math fluency.   The fluency class is a review of concepts taught in elementary.   Students can toggle between the two classes with the drop down menu under their avatar.

Math 8

-No class on Thursday.

Math 7

-Workbook needs to be completed and reviewed in order to do the re-write of the divisibility test on Monday.  This test requires students to have memorized the divisibility rules.

Math 6

-Notes attached below have the corrections of the practice test from today

-The class was divided into smaller groups today.  One group worked on primary factors with Mr. Walsh while the second group worked on Mathletics with myself.   A whole class group review was done of multiples and the rainbow method of finding all factors of a number.

-Test is Friday.

Science 8

-We did some guided reading on waves. Handout was given.

Science 7

-The class has asked to have their test Wednesday during Math class as I am away thursday and Friday of next week.  We will make up the math class latter. We did a group review today.  Studnets also had time to complete the draft of their conclusion.

Some photos from our recent classes.  Lots going on in Math and Science.

Many students were asking me to assign more Mathletics tasks today.  Some wanted more practice for the upcoming tests, and some wanted to gain more points towards certificates.   Please note that I have added more tasks, but they are not required to be completed for Sunday night.  I have also re-assigned tasks that students may have completed but not done well on.

Take time to rest, eat and enjoy time with family this week end.

Math 8

-We went over our formative test on order of operations with integers.  Test will be Tuesday.

-We also did some hands on work with nets.   Lots of laughs as they cut the nets out and tried to make 3-D shapes.  A fun way to end the week!

Science 8

-We continued our learning around waves and tides.  Notes are attached below.

Science 7

-We did a group review today and filled in and re-explained notes as needed.  Students should be reviewing notes at home on a regular basis.  It is too much to learn the night before a test.

Math 7

-We went over the formative divisibility test today.  Students will write the test that counts on Tuesday.

-Students had time to work on their Mathletics.  Some certificates were handed out to students.  Way to go grade 7.

Math 6

-We learnt a new method to find primary factors: factoring by division.  

-Students are encouraged to circle/highlight key words in the question to help them focus on what the question is asking them to find.  Students should be doing this on assignments and tests.  Remember Factors and multiples are not the same thing.   We practiced this strategy together as a class today.  Students will have a formative (practice) assignment Tuesday.  Test is tentatively planned for Thursday.

-Some enrichment was shown to the class for students that are ready to try a more advanced notation for their answers.  This is written as an added piece at the end of factoring using exponents. (You still write the primary factors out in ascending order in the long method). Students do not need to master this notation.  It is an enrichment for students who are working ahead of the class.  J  Congrats to those who are confident enough to embrace this new notation.

Math 6

-Our tentative date for an assessment (test) for multiples, factors and primary factors will be Thursday October 11th.   This may be moved depending on how the class does on the formative work.

-Today we did a review of all material covered this year.  We again went over the importance of reading the question.  Common multiples and common factors are not the same thing.  

-Homework is pg 65 Q3 c and d.  10 minutes of class time was given to work on these two questions. 

-Notes from today are posted below.

Math 7

-Students completed their formative assessment on divisibility rules.  Test is tentatively set for Tuesday and tomorrow’s class is devoted to reviewing and preparing for the test.

Science 7

-Today we went over the parts of a conclusion.  Students were then given time to write the draft of their particle theory lab.  Good copy will be due next Friday.

-We will be doing a lab next Science class Thursday.

-Tentative date for our first big test is October 15th. 

Science 8

-No class today due to assembly.
