  Below is the Math AGENDA for the week of Monday May 16 - Friday May 20 for my Grade 8 & 9 Math classes: Grade 8 Monday May 16  -  Hey everyone, today we are writing the  Chapter 10 UNIT TEST . All the best! Tuesday May 17 -    Hey everyone, today are starting Chapter 1 REPRESENTING DATA . We looked at defining data, interval and some conversions such as 100cm = 1m, and 12inches = 1foot. Moreover, we will be learning about the 6 types of graphs we will be using, and what each graph is best suited for.  Please refer to the section 1.1 NOTES in the gr. 8 notes tab on my Blog for details and for review. Today's activity is on Pg 13 (#1, 3 - 6) Wednesday May 18 -  Hey everyone, today we looked at representing data with a CIRCLE graph.  A reminder that to find the percent you divide the value by the total and then you multiply by a hundred.  Also, a reminder that to find the angle of the sector in the circle you simply take the PERCENT OF THE CIRCLE, (ie; convert the percent to a d

Below is the Math AGENDA for the week of Monday May 9 - Friday May 13 for my Grade 8 & 9 Math classes: Grade 8 Monday May 9  -  Hey guys, today we are writing the  Chapter 10 QUIZ  which will include sections 10.1-10.3. Make sure you know how to solve 1 and 2 step equations Algebraically and make sure you know the strategies involved to solve word-problems that require 1 or 2 steps. All the best!! Tuesday May 10 -    Hey everyone, today we are starting section 10.4 and we're looking at understanding how to solve multi-step equations of the form a(x + b) = c using a model. The model we will be using is Algebra Tiles. They are a good way of visualizing the manipulation on both sides of the equation when they are solved.  Please refer to the section 10.4 NOTES in the gr. 8 notes tab on my Blog for details and for review.  Today's activity is on Pg 397 (#2-7) Wednesday May 11 -  Hey guys, today we are wrapping up section 10.4 and we're looking at solving multi-step equation

  Below is the Math AGENDA for the week of Monday May 2 - Friday May 6 for my Grade 8 & 9 Math classes: Grade 8 Monday May 2  -  Hey guys, today we are looking at solving 2-step equations of the form ax + b = c by using Algebra. Remember:  When solving a 2-step equation: Isolate the variable, by performing the opposite operation to both sides of the equation. Remembering to:  1st: Perform the adding/subtracting 2nd: Perform the multiplying/dividing Please refer to the section 10.2 NOTES in the gr. 8 notes tab on my Blog for details and for review.  Today's activity is on Pg 385 (#7-10) Tuesday May 3 -    Hey everyone, today we are wrapping up section 10.2. We are looking using class time as a work-period to complete the following:  Please refer to the section 10.2 NOTES in the gr. 8 notes tab on my Blog for details.  Today's activity is on Pg 386 (#11 - 17,19) Wednesday May 4 -  Hi everyone, today there we are starting section 10.3 and we're looking at understanding how

Tuesday April 19 -  Hey everyone, today we are using class time to wrap up the questions from section 3.4. We are looking at applying the Pythagorean Theorem and using this theorem to solve application problems.  Please refer to the section 3.4 NOTES in the gr. 8 notes tab on my Blog for details and for review.  Today's activity is on Pg 104 (#6-16) Wednesday April 20 -  Hi everyone, today we started section 3.5 and learned how to apply the Pythagorean Theorem in application questions, and looked at a strategy on how to determine if an angle within a triangle is 90 degrees. Moreover, recall a "Pythagorean Triple," which consists of 3 whole numbers that would form the side lengths of a right triangle. For example 3,4,5 is an example of a Pythagorean Triple.  Please refer to t
