Unit 6 Practice Test Answer Key

Unit 7 Practice Test Answer Key

]]>

Here is the Practice Test which will help you to study for the unit test.

If you have questions, please CHECK YOUR NOTES IN YOUR NOTEBOOKS FIRST, then come see me tomorrow! I'll be in my room from 8am on.

Math help in the Fishbowl is always open at lunch (I have a presentation happening in Craft Club at lunch, so I will mostly be unavailable at lunch time).

(Special thanks to Sarah Hagan at mathequalslove.blogspot.com for most of the resources and inspiration for the pages in this post and throughout my notebook)

Students are invited to create their own title page (which is not counted in the page numbers).

On the first day of Notebooks we did a Growth Mindset quiz, and discussed the idea of a growth mindset (where you believe that you can train your brain and learn new skills if you work hard and if you are persistent), as opposed to a fixed mindset (where you believe you are "smart" or "not smart" or "a math person" or "not a math person", which is a less productive mindset and does not encourage hard work and persistence). I'll post more about growth mindset in another post.

We put in a Problem Solving ideas list, which we will be discussing more later.

Then we put in a Mathematician's Toolbox with a neat fold-out number line (see below for more photos).

Sorry for the confusion, we do the units out of order from what is in the textbook.

Table of contents so far - students will fill this out as we add pages.

Today (thursday) we will be discussing the course and what to expect, as well as the course marks breakdown. I will also explain about the Interactive Notebooks that we will be using to organize our notes and as a great study tool for this course.

Can't wait to meet you all!
