Math 8

-Today we worked on how to take data from a table and put it into a graph.  Students learnt that graphs need a title.  They need to use the info in the question to name the axis.  Each column (row) is a point on the graph.   Each axis can have its own scale.  Number are placed on the lines and not in the spaces.

-Q 10 is to be passed in for marks.

Math 7

-Today we learnt how to fill in an enter exit table.  We also reviewed material from last week.  Students are encouraged to think of algebra as a third language they are learning. It is important to review our new vocabulary.

-Homework is to finish the review sheet for material covered last week.

Math 6

-Today we learnt how to fill in a table with data using a pattern.  Students are to complete Q 1 and 2 for homework.  This is 4 tables in total.  See notes posted below.

Science 7

-Today we discussed observations.  We can have observations that describe and observations that have numbers. 

-We learnt about the terms concentrated and diluted.  We also began to learn how to calculate the concentration of a solution.

Grade 7 made a solution by diluting their solute in a solvant.  We saw a super saturated mixture.  We cleaned the oxidized tarnish off pennies.  Some groups then started to experiment with altering the time the solution worked on the penny. Other groups altered the ratio of solute to solvant to...

I will be having an extra help session Friday at lunch this week.

Math 8

-Students continued to work with data tables, and linear graphs.   Homework p. 363 Q 4 adn 7   p. 364 Q9

-A review sheet was passed out for all material covered to date.  This sheet is due Friday.  Students may use their notes.

Math 7

-We continue to learn the language of algebra.   Homework is p. 18 Q 1, 7 and 8

Math 6

-The worksheet on PEDMAS is due tomorrow and the students will correct it in class.

-A second review sheet was passed out.  This sheet reviews all material covered this year.  Students are to use their notes to help them review.  In June we will be writing a provincial assessment that coveres material from the entire year.    We will do review assignments all year so that we do not forget what we did earlier in the year.  This review assignment will be due Monday.
