Math and Science

Math and Science Week in Review

Week of September 13th - 17th, 2021

Math:

This week, the students explored ‘Mondrian Art’ during math and were tasked to find the best possible score for different sized grids. Students continued to expand upon their numeracy and estimation skills through various math talks in the classroom. We also began learning about the Cartesian plane.

DUE DATES:

Figures About Me, September 10th, 2021

Mondrian Puzzle, September 17th, 2021

Science:

In science, students have been learning about Planet Earth. This week’s focus was on minerals and the mineral identification properties such as lustre, colour, streak, and hardness. We also looked at some special properties of mineral identification such as effervescence and fluorescence. Students explored the properties of mineral identification and Moh’s hardness scale by researching and exploring mineral samples as they completed their ‘Mighty Mineral Cartoon’ assignment.

DUE DATES:

Layers of Earth, September 10th, 2021

Mighty Mineral Cartoon, September 17th, 2021


Week of September 7th - 10th, 2021

Math:

In math this week, Grade 7 students participated in a "Figure Me Out" math activity where they had to create math equations whose answers represented them. Students were able to create equations that challenged their thinking and represented their math ability and understanding of different kinds of numbers. Students also had the opportunity to participate in math discussion and share their strategies with others. Next week, we will be exploring the Cartesian plane. 

Science:

We started off our first Science unit, Planet Earth, by learning the definition of Geology, and exploring the layers of the Earth. Students took notes and were then asked to complete a poster describing each of the layers, with a detailed picture of the Earth, coloured and labelled. This assignment will be their first formative assessment and will be visible on powerschool next week. Next week, students will be learning about rocks and minerals.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL

RT @NickleCBE: Drive by and check out our new trees! Grade 7 Environmental Stewardship class planted 7 trees in front of our school (purchased by EcoClub last year). We are excited to be adding to the biodiversity of our community! #WeAreCBE #getoutside #environmentstewards @NickleParents https://t.co/Lpg5lX8LyH
