Good day Grade 8s. 

Click on the lesson links below.  Watch and try the activities and excercises.

Experimental verses Theoretical Probability

Complementary Events

 Simulations using Probability Models Revisiting Independent Events

Independent Events

Good day Grade6!   

This is the last week we will be posted content for you to do at home; however you can access the content during the summer if you so choose. 

1.  Watch the lesson SLIDES AND FLIPS and do the activities

2.  Slides= Translations

Flips= Reflections

In addition to these 2 transformations there is one called a rotation.  

3.  Go to that quiz and try the quiz on identifying the type of transformation.

4.  Unit 8 p.288 in your textbook deals with transformations.

  You can try p.293 Q. 1,2 

 Read CONNECT on p.296-297 p.299 Q.3

Read connect p.304-306  p.306 Q. 3,5

Read p.309 Connect p.311 Q.5, 6 ,8

Read p. 314 Connect   p. 315-316 Q. 1, 5

Create a design using transformations and describe the transformations you used, take a picture and send it to me  

Or find some designs in your house the having transformations.  Like the picture attached.

1.  Watch the lesson from spyguys again. (See last post)

2.  Read p. 277 on Experimental probability

p.278 Q. 1,2, 3, 5 (if you have a die try the experiment or use  

On p.281 there is a game you can play with a family member  .  Send me an email to let me know how it went

1.  Review Sheets attached with solutions

2.  In textbook p.347 Q. 4, 5, 6,11,12,13,14  Solutions are at the back of textbook.

3.  Everyone has thatquiz quizzes to do also.

Email me if you want some help:

Watch and do activity on Probability from Lesson menu:  ( will not work on Apple Products)

Try questions in textbook p.273-274 Q. 1,2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10

Watch this example on expanding an expression using the distributive property

You can look at some example on p.340-341 

Try questions on p.342 Q. 4,7, 8,11, 12,13,16  Solutions on p.520

 There is a worksheet with solutions attached

Watch "BALANCING EQUATIONS" and try activities (needs Flash/ won't work on Apple products)

In textbook p.33-34  andp.35 Q.  1-5

Also p.36-38 Q.1-5


Solving Linear Equations ax+b= c  and how to verify solutions

Solving Linear equations x/a= b

There are multiple solving equations worksheets below.  Follow and record the steps to solve the equation.  Solutions are provided with each worksheet.  

There will also be thatquiz with equations to solve.  There are also questions on p.336 Q.3,4,7,8  olutions on p.520

Watch the video on solving a simple equation. 





Points to remember:

  • When asked to solve an equation, your goal is to find the value for the variable (x)
  • You want to isolate (get it by itself on one side of the equation) the variable
  • Each step you take must preserve equality (meaning what you do to one side of the equation, you must do the same to the other side)
  • Verify means to check that when you substitute your solution back into the equation, both sides of the equation are equal


In your text book, you can try p.331  Q. 5, 6 (just solve don't worry about the model), Q.8, Q.11 Q.12  The solutions are on p. 520. 

If you don't have your textbook, I can send you an email with some practice. Just email me to ask for questions.

There are 3 worksheets attached with answers.

1. lowest term ratios-  write the ratios in lowest terms by dividing both terms by the same number

ex.   15:25  look for a common factor of 15 and 25.  Both can be divided by 5 to get 3: 5 .  3:5 is the ratio in lowest terms because 3 and 5 do not have a common factor to divide by.

2.  creating equivalent ratios-   find the number that is multiplied or divided by one term to get the other terms.  Do the same to the other term to find the missing term of the ratio

ex.   3: 4 =  6:  __     The first term is multiplied by two to get 6 in the second ratio, so multiply 4 by the same factor (X2) to get 8 for the missing term.

3.  understanding ratio problems-  Set up the ratios, find equivalent ratio and write solutions in lowest terms

ex.  The ratio of dogs to cats is 7:3.   If there are 35 dogs, how many cats?    

Set up:   

Dogs: Cats

7   :    4

35  :   __   

7 is multiplied by 5 to get 35, therefore multiply 4 by 5 to get the equivalent ratio.

There are 20 cats.
