Hi guys! Hope you’re enjoying your break!
Here is the homework (due 2-24-14, the Monday we get back): Math 8 Mid_Winter break HW Packet
Here are some videos of topics we’ve recently covered
Interested in nerdy math blogs??
See you on the 24th!
Hope your break is off to a good start! Are you bored?
Here is the homework packet: Mid_Winter_Break HW Packet Math 6
Here are a few videos about circles
And Composite Shapes
And Extra Goodness 🙂
See you all on the 24th!
Today we continued making progress towards our learning target:
I can calculate the area and circumference of circles.
We did this through analyzing mistakes:
And by practicing with word problems.
here is a good explanation
Homework: Pg 82 #22-25 in “Covering and Surrounding”
Today we talked about Venn Diagrams
Here are some resources
And some videos
Today in class we discussed Set Relationships
Here are our class notes: (my phone doesn’t want to upload photos…)
Definition- Mutually exclusive: Contradictory; Both cannot be true at the same time.
Example: when flipping a coin, it cannot land on heads and tails at the same time.
Mutually Exclusive events are represented by “Disjoint” Venn Diagram Circles (they do not overlap).
Thus P(A and B) = 0.
Here is a website with a great walk-through of the concept
Here is a short clip with another explanation
Homework (pg 3): SetRelationships
Today we worked on finding the area of composite (compound) shapes.
We had to know how to find the area of parallelograms (base x height) and how to find the area of triangles (base x height divide by 2).
Hopefully those help a bit.
Our homework due Friday: Covering and Surrounding pg 67 #39
