Student need to complete the following by the end of next week.
6.2 - pgs. 217-226, 248-255 fractions, decimals, percent
7.1 - pgs. 127-140 fractions, decimals, percent
7.2 - pgs. 9-10
Just a reminder, not every question needs to be done. It is an opportunity for students to practice the concepts in preparation for the test the week after next and an upcoming project involving fractions, decimals, ratios and percents.
If students do not mark the workbook, the practice is worthless - mark it so you get feedback on progress.
Attend tutorials on Thursdays after school to get some extra help on concepts not clear - tell Mr. Manners you are coming
**see jumpmath pages assigned
Students should be able to move freely between fractions, decimals, and percent, converting easily from one form to the other using different strategies.
Students are asked to create a data table which includes the following information:
Year, City, Medals Won (Total), Number of Athletes, Canada Population at time of Olympics
Students were then asked to create a line graph (shows progress over time) displaying year and medal count to show a historical comparison from the first games to the current games.
Students will be asked to use the data further by comparing athletes, medal count, and population - more details to follow
Below please find a list of pages that should be completed by your son/daughter in their Jump Math student workbooks. The pages listed below correspond with the topics already covered in class.
The goal of the student workbooks is to allow students the opportunity to do some extra practice on new concepts presented in class. When finished, students are then required to mark the homework pages so they can get some feedback on how well they understand the concept.
Attendance is requested at weekly tutorials if concepts are not clear to get some additional review.
Students in grade 6 who are using workbooks 6.1 and 6.2 should have completed the following pages to date:
6.1 - 1-4, 33-43, 56-62, 87-93
Students in grade 7 who are using workbooks 7.1 and 7.2 should have completed the following pages to date:
7.1 - 1-3, 51-71, 147-151, 207-214 (week of Dec. 16th)
Check with your son/daughter and ask to see their practice homework books as to whether they are up to date or require homework time to get caught up
Students from div. 20 and 21 collected height data on every student in their class. We will be using the data on Monday and do some anaysis of it. Please ensure your son/daughter arrives to class Monday with the data table complete and ready to go.
Students were also asked to organize the data on the back of the data table in order from shortest to tallest three different ways - they should be able to determine how that is possible.
Finally, students will need a working knowledge of the following math terms: mean, median, mode, range,and outlier. these definitions should be done in their daily math workbooks (keytabs).
Students need to prepare for the following concepts:
Writing numbers - standard form, expanded form, scientific notation, words
Estimating and Rounding
Factoring - factor trees
Primes and Composites - prime factorization
GCF and LCM
In preparation for the test, students are asked to create 50 questions on the topics above, then answer them, and mark them for feedback
JumpMath workbooks and khanacademy.org are excellent resources for students to gather their questions - no need to reinvent the wheel.
It is critical students mark their questions to get feedback.
Tutorial will be held on Thursday this week in preparation for the test
Students were asked to keep track of the candy they got for Halloween so we could use the data in Math class. Today, we organized the candy data into categories. Students then were given the following task:
1) Create a data table including fraction, decimal, %, degrees of a circle - this table should be completed on graph paper. Calculations for the degrees of a circle are to be done on the back side of the paper. Reminder, all decimals = 1.0, all % = 100% when added together, and all degrees = 360 when added together. In order to find the fractions, you will need a total number of candy pieces as the denominator and the totals from each category as the numerator.
2) Create a bar graph - remember to follow graphing rules
3) Create a circle graph - remember to follow graphing rules and rules specific to only circles
4) Complete the memorable fractions worksheet - do at least five examples
