This week we are going to try something new :)
1. To start, I would like you to activate a new account on Netmath. We will not be using the site a lot this week, but I would like everyone to have their account activated so when we need it, you simply have to login.
Follow the link to www.netmath.ca/activate
From here, you will first need to click on Activate. You will be asked for your student activation code, for Grade 7 it is 2DF9-8235
You will then be asked to fill in your first name
confirm password (this just means to put your password again)
*My suggestion for a password is to use the same password as for your school Office 365, so you don't have to remember so many passwords OR if you create a different password, write it down in a safe place you won't lose.
Your account is ACTIVATED! You can then go in and activities will be waiting for you.
The only activity this week is getting to know the site. This will teach you about the tools available, and how to use the site.
*Please remember, when you make your next visit to the site do NOT activate again. Simply sign in using your firstname, last name
2. Our Lesson for this week is on understanding Addition and Subtraction of Fractions and Mixed Numbers.
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 start 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.
When you are ready, you can start the next lesson on subtraction. Follow the link https://courseware.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/27/72/assignments/550/0
Please keep in mind, you are NOT required to do all of this in one day.Take your time, space it out, and try your best!
