Math 8B, 8C and 8G – Students are working well on one-step equations. I would like them to complete page 2 and page 3 in their booklet for homework.  As well, students were given the chance to take their Order of Operations test home to complete if they did not finish it last week.

Tomorrow we will be looking at modelling One-Step Equations and word problems dealing with One-Step Equations.

Science 9G and 9F – Today we looked at current and Ohm’s Law.  This shows the relationship between Voltage, Current and Resistance in a circuit.  Students are asked to complete questions 1-5 in their booklet for homework this evening.

Wednesday, February 15th

Math 8B, 8C, and 8G – started chapter 10 – Linear Equations. Students were given notes and examples with one step equations. They are to complete 1-10 on first page of their booklet and the second page 11-22. We will go over these tomorrow.

Science 9  – Exams are corrected andstudehts did well. We will continue with current, Ohms and voltage next class. Looking at Ohms Law and relationship between all three in a circuit.
