Hello amazing students and parents!
Over the past two weeks we have been working on Number sense and calculations:
-operations with integers (negative numbers)-Gave back a test last week.
-operations with fractions and conversion to decimals and percent (pixel art project)
-understanding what a fraction, decimal and percent mean
-what is probability and where do we see fractions used?
-negative and positive fractions with operations
-mental math strategies (how to calculate quickly and accurately)-Was included on last test
I would encourage the students to:
-practice calculations (drills! Try: Hoodamath!)
-estimate prices and total in a store or restaurant
-review your bank account if you have online banking
-have a look at Numbeo-a cool site with world stats
-look at Maths Libres online and try and few of their practice sheets
-check out Wired Math.com (Waterloo University). There are many games to practice specific skills.
-I am moving into second term shortly,all students should have a caIculator (a cheap one!) as I would rather they didn`t use cell phones for that purpose and never on a test.
-first term exam will take place in January at the same time as the High School. I will give specific dates before the holiday break
-Pixel art project is due on Decmber 9th at 3:10pm (`the sheet for their information and work is under my documents, titled `l`art des fractions``
-I have many resources under my documents that I use in class (Ppts, worksheets etc). These are handy to use to review for tests or extra help.
I hope you have a great rest of week!
