French immersions math and science

Grade 8 

-We have finished the grade 8 curriculum.   I will take this week to review chapter 1.   We did this before Christmas.  We learnt about square roots and perfect squares.  In grade 9 students revisit this concept and build on it.  For this reason, I think it is a good choice to review in preparation for grade 9 math.   Please watch the video and complete a few learning activities. 

 

-Mathletics: prime or composite 

-Mathletics:  square roots

Grade 8 

This week we are reviewing an outcome we covered in science.  It is our last outcome for math 8.  How to read graphs.  In Mathletics you will be asked to read graphs to answer questions. 

-Please log into Reflex and get your green circle three times. 

-Please log into Mathletics and complete the tasks assigned.  These are different for each student.

Grade 6 

We have one unit left to cover in the grade 6 material: module 8 on transformations.   Module 8 is on page 289 of the student text.   You can find copies of the English text, Math Makes Sense 6online.    This will be difficult to cover from a distance as it involves moving images about a coordinate plane.  Most of us do not have graph paper at home or the ability to access a printer.    Rest assured that it will be covered next year as this is a concept we re-visit in grade.   I am developing a list of some resources to introduce the unit from a distance.   These resources will be posted next week, and I intend to make a few videos to explain the main concepts.     

 

This week we will focus on our multiplication tables.   I can’t stress enough how important it is that your child know their multiplication tables by heart.      Please spend the time this week practicing them with your child.    If you would like a report of which multiplication facts are causing trouble for your child, please email me and I can send you a report from Reflex that identifies them for you child.  My email address is angela.mcquaidmurphy@nbed.nb.ca 

 

Activities to help your child learn their multiplication facts: 

  1. Reflex: Students should log on each day this week and work until they get a green circle. 

 

  1. This site has a lot of worksheets that can be printed or copied. https://www.mathslibres.com/multiplication.php 

For those students who contacted me wanting more practice for perimeter and rectangles, you can use the following:

Grade 8

We have two concepts left to cover in Math 8.   They are the following:

SP1 Critiques data presentations

SS6 Understanding tessellations  (In French Un dallage)

 

This week we will learn about tessellations.  In French we call this a “ un dallage”.    Please watch the video and then complete the project.  The project is to create a tessellation.  Please take a picture and send the picture of your tessellation to me at angela.mcquaidmurphy@nbed.nb.ca .

Also, please spend some time this week practicing your child’ multiplication tables. .   I can’t stress enough, how important it is that your child know their multiplication tables by heart.  Please spend the time this week practicing them with your child.    If you would like a report of which multiplication facts are causing your child some trouble, please email me and I can send you a report from Reflex that identifies them for you child.  My email address is angela.mcquaidmurphy@nbed.nb.ca

Grade 7 

This week we start Module 8 in math Makes Sense.   Please have your child watch the video to learn the new concepts and vocabulary.    

 

Encourage your child to learn their multiplication facts.   Students should do Reflex each day this week.   Below are some links to further practice multiplication.  

Extra practice for those who asked for more area review: 

Area of a triangle: 

In a triangle any of the three sides could be used as the base.   The height used must make a 90-degree angle with the base the student chooses to use.   Sometimes this height will be a side of the triangle (in a right triangle), a measurement in the triangle or outside of the triangle.   This is reviewed in the following video with the correct terms in French. 

 

Worksheet to practice (with answers): 

 

 

Area and perimeter of rectangles: 

 

Game to practice area of a rectangle:

Grade 7 

This week our new topic is area of a circle.  Because we use π in the calculation of area of a circle, and because it is an irrational number that never ends, your answer may be slightly different than the one Mathletics has.  This is ok.  Do not worry if your question is marked wrong.   It has to do with the fact that a calculator rounds the value and different calculators round at different place in the decimal. Please watch the video on the ShowMe platform or on YouTube. 

Do a couple of the following learning opportunities.  Do the ones you prefer and work best in your learning environment.  

-Mathletics 

-IXL (review of circumference and new topic of area) 

-Reflex (3 times sa week until you get a green circle) 

-https://www.logicieleducatif.fr/math/geometrie/aire-du-disque.php    Disque is another name for circle.

-District Math activity 

-Research a topic you are interested in science and email me a short description of what you researched and learnt. 

-Email me the answer to the garden project problem.
