-Students are to complete the histogram for marks.  A copy of the data table is in the notes below for students who were absent today.

Science 8

-A second practice test was passed out today.  Students should have this completed for next class as we will be correcting it as a group.

-Students are to complete the density worksheet.  One side allows students the practice of answering quetions using the information from the graph.  The other side allows students to review terminology and to aplly what we are learning in math to science.  Students may use a calculator to answer questions.

Math 8

-Homework will be checked tomorrwo.  Review day 1 and 2 are due for correction.

Math 7

-Students need to bring a math set to  class each day.  We have started module 8.

Science 6

-Today we went over how to answer multiple choice questions involving testable questions and graphs.  Students were given the third practice test.  This will be corrected next class (Monday) for marks.

Science 8

-Students should now have their two density lab sheets completed and passed in.  Students need to use their observations and calculations in their conlusion statements and answers.  Conclusions should be a general summary statement of what they learnt.  They should then add a second statement where they use their calculations and observations to suport their summary statement.  Remember that numbers need to have units.  NO units, no points.  :)
