Homework: Finish Skittles Percent Circle Graph. It will be collected at the beginning of class tomorrow.  
Both grade 7 and 8 have a test tomorrow in class. There are sample tests for each. Grade 7 please note that the method used in the sample to get the answer is not the one used in class. Please use the method taught in class. Both have an exam on Friday on all work completed from September until today.

The file is similar but not identical to the test which will be given in class tomorrow. There will be a vocabulary quiz as well and some questions will carry additional instructions such as determining whether the trinagle is obtuse or acute if it is not a right triangle. Most questions will indicate that you must draw a diagram if possible.

Last week students worked on converting fractions to decimals and percents and changing each to one of the others. Students also should understand that each of these forms are equal to one another. ( For example: 1/2 = 0.5 = 50%) Students can use the textbook sections 3.1 and 3.2 to review this information This week students will be adding and subtracting decimals. (Section 3.3) and multiplying and dividing decimals (3.4 and 3.5).     Students may need to review multiplying numbers and dividing numbers using online games, videos or practice. Extra help will be available on Tuesday for those that wish to attend.

This week students will explore Pythagorean Theorem. a2 + b2 = c2 This theorem helps to prove that a triangle is a right triangle and can be used to find the length of any line in the triangle if you know the other two. In the textbook students can use sections 1.5 to 1.7 to develop their understanding Pythagorean theorem. We spent the last week and a half learning about squared numbers and square roots. To be successful students need to remember how to square a number: which is done by multiplying a number by itself. So 4 squared is 42=4 x 4= 16.) Students also need to find the square root of a number for example the square root of 16 is 4.

Students continue to work on solving algebra equations using models and then without models. This outcome is represented in teh textbook in sections 6.1 to 6.5. Students will be tested on this outcome early next week (Tuesday). Understanding terminolgy is very important and students should review the key terms for each unit frequently.

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).
