Students will be getting their "unit test" back on Monday. Materials required this week in math. Graph paper, Textbook, Notebook, Pencils and erasers, and a ruler This week students will be focusing on a new outcome. Students will be working with patterns and developing an expression which will represent the pattern. For example the pattern:3, 5, 7, 9 ,11, 13 Can be represented by the expression 2n+3. Students will also graph these relations. This outcome is found in the text in Sections 1.3 to 1.6. There will be a test on these skiills early next week (Tuesday or Wednesday).

Grade 7F is working on Divisibility Rules. The rules can be found on page 12 of the text book. They can use their Mathletics site to practice the skills for this unit at home as well as at school occasionally.A quiz will occur very early next week. Grade 8 M is working on Understanding Graphs this includes understanding what various graphs are best for and therefore what certain graphs are not very good at displaying. Near the beginning of Unit 7 there is a very helpful chart and other notes which can help explain these concepts. Students will continue to work on this for the next few classes.They can use their Mathletics site to practice the skills for this unit at home as well as at school occasionally.If your child wants help they are welcome to stay during activity period Tuesday or Thursday.

Grade 8 is off to a great start we have started with multiplying and dividing integers. So far there has been no homework as students have been able to complete assigned questions in class. If you have any questions or concern please e-mail or call. Extra help: If you want/ need it it is available on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (most of the time) during activity period. If for some reason this is not possible I can meet with at lunch to assist you. If you are struggling with a question get help right away since these types of difficulties are best solved sooner rather than later.

The grade 7 class is working on a practice test in class. We are going over each question in class one by one and students are expected to make corrections on the practice test. Students have been told before hand that some of the questions on the final test will come directly from this practice test. Some numbers will be changed but the expectations of the question will remain the same as will the wording. The only real change will be an additional box on the test that asks the students to verify their answer to the question. We have verified our answers for every question in class and this will be expected during the test as well. Students will bring their practice test home with them tomorrow (Thursday). I strongly recommend that they work out some of the questions and compare their answer to the "corrected" version that they should have from our classwork. I will collect the "Practice Test" at the start of class Friday and will use it as part of their classwork/homework grade. If you have any questions please contact me.
