Students added salt to water and saw how it changed the density of the liquid.   We were able to see that an egg sinks in tap water but floats in salt water.  Students were able to layer the two types of water.  Good work today grade 8!

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.

-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.  :)
