Welcome Back Grade 7

Posted: April 26, 2020

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:

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 6 it is EEE2-3CD8

You will then be asked to fill in your first name

                                 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.

 

*Please remember, when you make your next visit to the site do NOT activate again. Simply sign in using your firstname, last name

                                                                                                 password

2. Our Lesson for this week is on Ratios.

To understand and explore ratios, the following site (even though it says grade 7&8), explains exactly in the first two lessons of the unit, what we need to know. The lesson is an audio/visual lesson 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, follow the link to https://courseware.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/27?gid=75

We will be working on Lesson 1 : What are Ratios?

                           Lesson 2: Equivalent Ratios

Start with Lesson 1, and 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 Lesson 2. 

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!

2.Fraction Dice game:

You will need a pair of dice, a partner (or two or three!), a paper and pencil to record your totals. 

a. Decide what the end goal will be - do you want to add until you get a total of 3?,  5? , 10? The higher the total, the longer the game may go, You decide!

b. Each player tosses the dice, then creates and records a proper fraction. (ex. rolling a 1 and a 3, creates 1/3)

c. On the next roll, add your new fraction to the previous fraction. (if you roll doubles, remember 5/5= 1 so you would now have a mixed number when you continue adding.)

ex. 1+1/3 = 1 1/3

c. Continue adding each new fraction to the previous. The first palyer to reach the goal wins! Give it a try!  :)
