This week we will continue working on the exercises on Adding and Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers assigned last week.
Remember, the lessons are audio/visual lessons so you can hear someone explaining the terms and lessons, and watch as they walk you through the math.
Note: The Alternative Format section simply presents the lesson without the audio.
To continue the lesson on addition, follow the link to https://courseware.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/27/72/assignments/562/0
Work through each section of videos and exercises. At times, during a lesson, you will be given a "Check your Understanding" question or little game. When you complete it, continue the video by pressing the forward button on the black bar at the bottom of the lesson screen. Do not press the blue NEXT button until you are ready to move to the next section of the lesson.

Once complete, there are activities on the Dreambox and *Netmath sites to practice.
*If you have not been to the Netmath site yet, see last week's Grade 7 letter for instructions on activating your account. (Please only activate once.)
If you have completed the activities assigned last week, I have added another activity on Netmath, on calculating Fractions-Decimals-Percent. There is also an activity waiting on Dreambox on Percents.
Percent game : Decention
Follow the link www.mathplayground.com
a) Click on "Math Games"
b) Scroll down and click on the orange "More Fraction Games" bar
c) Scroll down to the "Cranium Challenges" section and click on "DecentionJr"
The object of the game is to place the proper fraction, decimal and percent on each of their corresponding fraction circles.
Feeling brave? :) Try the game "Decention" afterward. The object of the game is the same, but the fraction circles are not provided. Have fun!
