Ms. Hache

Welcome Back Grade 7

Posted: May 3, 2020

This week we will be looking at Ratios, Rates, and Proportional Reasoning

To begin, we will start with the audio/visual lesson. Follow the link

https://courseware.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/27

On the left side, under Units, click on Ratios, Rates and Proportions (N). This will open up a set of lessons for us to explore.

We will start with a review:

Lesson 1 What are Ratios

Lesson 2 Equivalent Ratios

These lessons will serve to remind us what we learned in Grade 6. You will not need to spend a great deal of time here. Simply refresh yourself, and when you are confident you remember and understand, move on to:

Lesson 5 Unit Rates

Lesson 6 Proportionality

Once you have completed lesson 5 & 6, you can follow up with activities on *Netmath, to practice what you have learned there. 

Note: If you haven't been on the Netmath site yet, see last week's Grade 8 letter on how to activate your account. (Please only activate once!) All other visits only need your name and password.

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.

 

For the lesson on subtraction. Follow the link https://courseware.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/27/72/assignments/550/0

 

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.)

Note:

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. 

 

 

 

Tuesday/Thursday activity:

 

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!

Just a quick reminder for Grades 6-8: As mentioned in my note posted on Sunday, this weeks activity/lesson was in 2 parts. The first was just having students Activate and explore the introductory activity for the new Netmath site. 

After discussions with some parents and students, it seems people have missed the second part of this weeks lesson. Sudents were given a specific lesson, by grade, on another site. The link was provided to take you to the lesson.

Grade 6 - Ratios and Equivalent Ratios

Grade 7 - Addition & Subtraction of fractions and Mixed Numbers

Grade 8 - Percents less than 1% and greater thsn 100%

Please read through your class letter again, and do what you can. I will be extending this lesson through next week to allow students who didn't see this part, a chance to complete the work. 

Have a great week!

It is important for all students to visit each of your teacher's pages to see lessons/activities for individual subjects. 

Hello everyone! This week we are going to try some new sites. You will all be asked to Activate an account on the site, Netmath. Simply follow the instructions given in your individual class letter. Each grade has its own activation code written in bold. Also, as noted in your individual class letters, please activate your account only once. Future visits after activation only require your full name and password. (see class letter for details)

Grade 5 will be the first to use the site beyond the getting to know the site activity. Grades 6-8, simply check out the getting to know the site activity. 

For Grade 6-8, lessons will be completed on the University of Waterloo site. Please see your class letters for details on each class lesson. 

Take your time, space out the work and have a great week!

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. 

To Acivate:

                                 last name

                                 password

                                 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.

2. Our Lesson for this week is on finishing our work on Percents less than 1% and greater than 100% 

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 follow the link to https://courseware.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/27/75/assignments/751/0
