Math 9 – Thurs Oct 18

Block 1: FOIL review and practice sheet

Block 2: Perimeter and area with FOIL worksheet. You should have picked up the unit review also at the end of class.

Important dates coming up:

  1. Polynomials Unit review due Tuesday 
  2. Polynomials Unit Test – Thursday Oct 25th

Math 8 b7/8 – Thurs Oct 18

Block 1: Reviewed adding/subtracting when you have to find a common denominator. (hint! Look for the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) to use as your new denominator. Then multiply the numerator by the same factor that you multiplied the denominator by to get to the new denominator). We did pages 14-16 (only have to do half of page 16)

Block 2: Adding and subtracting fractions and integers. We wrote notes and assigned pages 17 and 18.

FOR MONDAY – Please have pages 14-18 done (it’s OK to only do half of page 16). Thanks team!

MATH 8 – Fraction lessons

Have you missed some class lately? Do you need a bit of a refresher on some of the concepts? THIS POST IS FOR YOU!

  1. Adding fractions with like denominators VIDEO
  2. Adding fractions with unlike denominators VIDEO
  3. Adding/subtracting mixed fractions VIDEO

Have a look along the left hand side of the video pages… Here you can find some extra practice. YAY.

Math 8 b 3/4 – Wed Oct 17

Block 1: Review page 16. Make your life easier by finding lowest common factor of denominators and make that your common denominator. Then adding and subtracting fractions and integers. Practiced on pages 17 and 18.

Block 2: Talked about solutions to pages 17 and 18. Then you made a quiz for your class for next class – Monday. Includes everything we’ve done so far in the fractions unit (up to, and including, page 18).

Math 8 b3/4 – Tues Oct 16

Parent-teacher night is tomorrow – Wednesday Oct 17th from 6:30 to 8 pm. I look forward to meeting with you and your parents!

Today – lots of practice with adding fractions with unlike denominators (you have to find a common denominator before adding the numerators!) Please continue practicing on pages 14-16 for tomorrow’s class. Try finding LCM (lowest common multiple) for denominators to save yourself some work.

Math 9 – Tues Oct 16

Parent-teacher night is tomorrow – Wednesday Oct 17th from 6:30 to 8 pm. I look forward to meeting with you and your parents!

 

Today we worked through the questions on Algebra Fractions #2 sheet that you had troubles with. Then – the last topic of this unit: FOIL! When multiplying binomials we need to make sure we multiply each term in the first bracket by EACH TERM IN THE SECOND. Would you like a refresher?! Check this video

We’ll get some more practice on Thursday in our double block. Be prepared for a Unit Test next week .. likely on our double block.
