8th Grade -- Math (H) -- Nicole -- Thanksgiving Week


Happy vacation, 8th graders! You've made it to the final stretch of the first semester. Skill Sheet #7 is designed to keep your minds well-trained for the upcoming weeks of school. All work is due the first day back to school, Tuesday, December 2. 

You can link Skill Sheet #7 here or from last week's assignment sheet.

Happy Thanksgiving!

6th Math - Mr. Michaud - Week of November 17, 2014

Thursday, November 20, 2014

We are beginning to learn HOW TO CONSTRUCT Squares, Rectangles, and Triangles using a RULER, PROTRACTOR, and COMPASS.

This is a skill you have to Practice!!!!

For HOMEWORK TONIGHT...

Use a RULER and a PROTRACTOR to CONSTRUCT a SQUARE, a RECTANGLE, and a TRIANGLE with the measurements I wrote on the board and asked to put in your planner.

If you did not write those measurements down in class...here they are again!!!

SQUARE -  with sides that are 6 cm  (all angles are 90 degrees)
RECTANGLE - length = 8cm and width = 4 cm  (all angles are 90 degrees)
TRIANGLE -  Base = 6cm ...  base angles = 110 degrees and 40 degrees
  Make sure you LABEL all points, sides, and angles

TOMORROW we will be doing the same process with a COMPASS...so please watch the videos below so your understand the steps to drawing each type of figure.

                            ...and a protractor for certain types of Triangles

Constructing a Triangle  (compass only and the occasional protractor)

Parallelogram (BONUS)

Intro to Chapter 10 - Measurements

LO (Homework) -  Measuring Lines and Angles / Drawing Angles
                              Complete the worksheet handout based on the examples given.

We will be beginning a unit on CONSTRUCTING Squares/Rectangles/Triangles using only a COMPASS and STRAIGHT-EDGE (ruler) on Thursday.

Before then...PLEASE REVIEW THE VIDEOS below to understand the techniques for constructing a PERPENDICULAR LINE (used to construct squares and rectangles) and constructing Triangles when only given the length of each side or one angle and the length of one side.

LO (Homework)   Graphing LINEAR EQUATIONS
                               Do all 7 problems on the Handout

For each problem you will...

1.  Read and understand the "RULE" as given
2.  Set up and INPUT/OUTPUT CHART
3.  Use the given values for X and solve the equation to find Y
4.  LIST the "ORDERED PAIRS"  ( X, Y) and graph on the coordinate plane.

We will have a Mini-Quiz tomorrow on Graphing LINEAR EQUATIONS so if you are still a bit confused...WATCH THE VIDEO and PRACTICE!!!

Thursday, November 20, 2014

We had no class today...so no assigned homework.

But tomorrow, we will be constructing (drawing) squares, rectangles, and triangles using BOTH a PROTRACTOR and then a COMPASS. We will do some basic PROTRACTOR work in class, but the COMPASS work is a bit more complicated
...so please watch the videos below so your understand the steps to drawing each type of figure.
