7A Science Homework
Students are to submit a formal procedure (step-by-step with full sentences) and an observation section for the separation activity that was performed yesterday. Students had all class today to complete this and many students have already submitted them. This is due by Wednesday at the beginning of class.
7B & 7C Math
This week we have started the unit on coordinate graphing where students will be completing an assignment (https://mrs-lingley.wikispaces.com/Geometry) that requires a great deal of attention to detail. I have asked students to ensure that they bring their ruler and colouring supplies with them to class next week so that assignments can be completed during class time.
Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!Mrs. Lingley
District STEAM Expo Registration
This is a reminder that the deadline to register for the District STEAM Expo is Wednesday, March 13th at midnight. This is an open event for any and all students who wish to participate.
Participation at the school level is not required - you did not have to win at the BCMS STEAM to register!!
Please visit STEAM Expo to register your project and for all information.
7C Math and Science
Math: Students will have one more class to work on the cereal box challenge on Monday. They are due by Thursday, March 1st.
Science: We will be conducting an experiment on Monday so all pre-labs must be submitted by the start of class.
Have a wonderful weekend :)
Rate of Dissolving pre-lab must be completed and handed in by Wednesday in order to participate in the lab activity.
7BC Math Homework - February 9th
Today in class we started a 'M'Art assignment where students were asked to design an image using a 100 grid. After completing the design students are to count the number of squares coloured for each colour used (4 minimum!) and turn them into a fraction, decimal and a percent. My added requirement is that all 4 numbers be different so that we end up with at least 4 different fractions.
Attached is the assignment page and a picture showing example of previously completed designs.

An enrichment option was for students to use their own graph paper and create pixel art of any size. This create a bit of a challenge as the denominator of their fractions will not be 100.
All assignments are due on Monday.
7BC Math Quiz - Wednesday, February 7th
There will be a Quiz on adding and subtracting fractions next Wednesday. Do not forget to reduce your final answers and make sure that they are in proper form!
Attached is the practice quiz that students received earlier this week with an answer key provided. On the quiz itself students must show their work.
7BC Math Update
We are now coming to the end of our unit on adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators (and mixed!). Essential skills are:
- Findng the LCM (lowest common multiple)
- Converting improper to mixed and mixed to improper
- Reducing (simplify) fractions
A great source for practice questions is www.math-aids.com!
7ABC STEAM DUE TOMORROW!
This is it folks! ALL STEAM project components must be handed in tomorrow!
1) Written/typed report (Question, Hypothesis, Materials, Procedure, Observations/Results, Conclusion, Sources).
2) Presentation Materials (Tri-fold, poster, powerpoint sent via e-mail or on USB, slideshow, video, etc).
Typed reports and digital presentations can be shared via e-mail or google drive this evening if needed.
7B & 7C Math Quiz
With the majority of the area unit having been completed prior to the break with Mr. Watts we will be writing a quiz that covers circles, triangles and parallelograms next Tuesday. I apologize for students writing two test in the same week - the only new topic in Math is finding the area of parallelograms (with circles and triangles already covered).
The quiz will be quite short and focus on solving word problems that involve multiple shapes at one time. An example of this style question has been attached to this notice. Please note that the final answer is incorrect as students were tasked with explaining where the student had gone wrong.

7ABC Science Test
Next week students will write the Unit Test for Earth's Crust: Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Mountains. Earlier material from the Rock Cycle will help students to explain these processes and events.
7A - Friday
7B - Thursday
7C - Wednesday

7B & 7C Math Homework
Students were assigned questions in class today to complete. The majority of questions should have been finished in class however any remaining questions have been assigned as homework to be completed for tomorrow's Math class. Students were instructed to complete one of 3 options:
1) #10-16 (straight forward questions)
2) #17-20 (complex questions)
3) Math Link (create-your-own-problem artistic questions)
Completed questions must include the formula used, demonstration of calculations, and a final answer with units in a complete sentence.

7ABC STEAM Update
By now, students should be completing their STEAM experiments as the final outline is due on Tuesday, December 20th (observations, conclusion, mistakes). All of the outlines that have been submitted to date are considered to be rough copies to ensure that students understand the scientific method and what is expected for the final report.
The complete project is due by Friday, January 26th. A complete project includes a good copy of the scientific method (combine all outlines into one report) and a presentation to be shared with the class. Students are expected to complete the final project at home however extra help is readily available upon request.Presentations can be in the form of a poster board, tri-fold board, powerpoint, video, or in-class demonstration. Students who wish to compete at the school or district level are encouraged to use a tri-fold board. While formal presentations are optional (in front of the class), all students are expected to present in a small-group setting. Presentations will begin on Monday, January 29th. Please refer to the attachment for the rubric that will be used to assess projects.
