**Math 8**

-Today we practiced how to show multiplication of integers with models. We learned how to use a rectangle model to do multiplication when we cannot use a calculator. We also saw how we can use our sign trick to do division questions. Notes are posted below.

-Homework: p. 73 Q8 and p. 74 Q10

-We will be having our first test Monday. Tomorrow we will do a formative test. This is a practice test.

** Math 7**

-Today we took some notes on how to subtract integers using models. Notes are posted below. You draw the first term and then add <<des paires nulles>> until you can circle and take away the second term.

-Homework: Q 1 and 2

-Students are to get their worksheet signed for homework.

**Science 6**

**-**Today we talked about animals to build our vocabulary. It lead to students sharing stories of various injuries. Once we continued we did some classification activity together as a class. Students are learning that animals can be grouped based on traits.

-Homework: students should be studying the notes we took to date. They should also be reviewing vocabulary around animals so that they can participate in class discussions.

**Science 8**

-Today we reviewed the characteristics of living things. **Homework** is to explain the steps one would take to test if an object they found in the playground was living or non-living. We will start next class by sharing our answers. This should be a detailed answer.

-We practiced how to take personal notes from what was said in class and what was on the board. This is an important skill for our grade 8 students to learn. Students picked out key words and phrases and made notes on 4 scientist.

-Time was given in class for students to review and memorize the parts of a microscope. As soon as the lab is ready we will be using them. Students need to know the names and functions of the parts of a microscope so that we will be able to remain <<en français>> while doing the labs.
