Math 8

In Socials 7, students can complete the unit we left off with a look at Hammurabi's laws and how they relate to life in Ancient Mesopotamia. There are three links related to this assignment.

Next, students can start to explore the shift in ideas as people migrated to North America, looking at and working on the assignments relating to the "Early North Americans" at their own pace.

After the "Early North Americans", students can then start the unit on Ancient Egypt, again, working at their own pace.

In Math 8, students can start by reviewing practice questions related to percent, and converting fractions, decimals and percent. Next, students can work on calculating percent of a number. There is review page students can try with examples and an answer key.

Students can self check answers using the answer keys.  Students will be moving into calculations using rates, ratios. and proportions next.

Mr. Gambell will be available for video chats every Tuesday, check out the Zoom meeting page here for times. Students can also email Mr. Gambell at dgambell@sd22.bc.ca at any time.
   
At this time there are some options as what to do with completed work. If you have the ability, you can drop off completed work at the school, email or even simply take a picture of your work and email that to Mr. Gambell. Students can also hold onto their work as evidence of their learning. If schools do reopen before September, your student may be asked to provide evidence of learning. Parents are expected only to monitor some daily progress with their students. For more support regarding what to expect of your student, please visit the "Message to Parents" and the "FAQs" pages.
