Topics include:
The Chapter Review and Practice Test at the end of chapter 10 in the text are good resources to use to prepare for the test. There are also many additional questions that were not assigned in the textbook as well. Good lUck! :) Moving deeper into our study of algebra and equations, we will work on solving equations that take one or two steps to solve. This information can be found in the textbook in chapter 10. The notes from class and suggested textbook questions can be downloaded by clicking on the link below. The project for this unit can be found in the textbook on pg. 405 (Challenge in Real Life).
Because this section was mostly review from grade 7, we will be having a quiz on the following topics on Friday, May 9th:
 creating tables of values (from a graph, from an equation)  creating graphs (from tables of values, from an equation)  decribe patterns in words (remember 3 things : what is it, where start, how change)  describe a pattern by creating an equation (from a graph or table of values)  explain whether a graph / table of values / pattern is linear or not. Linear relationships are something that students should be familliar with from Grade 7 Math. In Part 1  Chapter 9 in the textbook  we review and explore ways to represent linear relationships: a) tables of values b) graphs c) words d) expressions / equations In Part 2  Chapter 10 in the textbook  we will look at how to solve these relationships using one and two step equations. Notes and textbook questions assigned for this unit can be found in the following document:
We have completed our practice questions on integers and have begun to review for the final test on this unit. Students are encouraged to complete the Chapter Review and Practice test in the textbook, and additional questions are available on IXL Math website.
For the unit project, students will be playing and creating a game that uses integers in multiple operations (add, subt, mult, div). Integers are positive and negative numbers, including zero. In Grade 7, you were introduced to integers and learned how to add and subtract them. (NUMBER LINES, INTEGER CHIPS, and ZERO PAIRS would have been used to help you). A general rule is that if you have two negatives (subtracting a negative number for example) they become a positive. Ex. (+1)  (2) = (+1) +2 = 3 In Grade 8, we review these operations and learn how to multiply and divide integers. Click to download the notes for this unit that were handed out in class:

For the unit test, students will need to know the following:
 views of 3D objects  using views to draw a 3D object  making nets for 3D objects  using nets to find surface area  using formulas to find the surface area of 3D objects 3D objects studied are: Cube Rectangular Prism Triangular Prism Cylinder *note that Circumference and Hypotenuse calculations may be needed to find some of these surface areas. Review questions can be found at the end of Chapter 5. PROJECTS  Due April 10th. Now that we know how to find all side lengths of right angle triangles, the next step is SURFACE AREA! In this unit, we will look at:  2D and 3D views of objects  Nets  Surface area of cubes, prisms and cylinders The following notes were handed out in class:
Suggested questions for groups are:
3D Views  P. 168169 G – 2, 4, 5, 6 B – 2, 4, 5, 6, 9 R – 2, 4, 5, 7, 9 Nets  P. 174175 G – 3, 4, 7 B – 3, 4, 7, 9, 13 R – 3, 4, 7, 9, 12, 13 Prism SA  P. 180181 G – 3, 5, 10, 11 B – 3, 5, 10, 11, 12 R – 3, 5, 10, 11, 12, 13 Cylinder SA  P. 186  187 G – 2, 5, 8 B – 2, 5, 8, 11 R – 2, 5, 8, 11 We have studied 4 main ideas in this chapter:
 Squared numbers, perfect squares, and square roots  Estimating square roots (number lines)  Pythagorean Theorem and Right Triangle  Using the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems Students are encouraged to prepare for the test by completing the Chapter 3 Review and checking their answers with the answers in the back of the textbook. There is also a Practice Test for Chapter 3 in the text  answers for this are available upon request from Mrs. C. :) Good Luck!
