Grade 7 Math

Last Thursday, students were given the block to work on the analysis for their carnival game. In addition to this 50 minute work period, they also the weekend to complete the assignment. I will be collecting the completed copies on Monday. This is the final component for their Data Management and Probability mark for term two. Students who lost their copy can download a new one HERE.

Other than completing the assignment, we have completed the course content for this year. This week, we will review some of the major concept in preparation for the exam on Wednesday. We will also be playing math survivor throughout the week.

Grade 7 Science

7-10 and 7-09 are on totally different tracks this week since 7-09 missed so many classes this month. Therefore, I am going to write about each group separately.

For 7-10, Monday will be the building day for our solar powered smore cookers. Click HERE to find a link to the project. Last week, students designed their cookers and determine who would be bringing in building materials. Tuesday we will test the cookers. On Wednesday, students will be writing their final assessment on heat transfer (conduction, convection, and radiation).

For 7-09, on Tuesday we will be reviewing the three main methods of heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation) in preparation for our test. On Wednesday, students will be writing their final assessment on heat transfer.

Since Friday is the movie day, and Monday and Tuesday (am) are award ceremonies, Wednesday class looks to be the last science class for the year. I will be handing out mark breakdowns to all students on Thursday (whether or not I teach them) so that students can get an overview of where their report card grade came from. Students that have questions about their grade can always come find me Thursday or Friday at lunch or after school to sort things out before the report card are distributed on June 25.
