Math: Fractions

**Navtej the Mathematician**

Math: Measurement (Formulas)

In math we learned all kinds of formulas to solve certain problems and equations. We learned how to properly calculate the surface area of a rectangular prism. I was always confused with that but now it is clear to me.

Math= Input and Output

We learned input and output in math.

It is mainly used for a patterning purpose. At least that is what I have noticed. You have a rule and you in put the number. Whatever the rule says, you do to the number and that is your output.

Math: Stem and Leaf Plot

In math we learned a strategy to record data in a different way. For example, the stem and leaf plot shown shows the grades on a science test. The stem shows the first digit of the number of all the other numbers on the opposite side of it which is the leaf. So for 7 in stem, 6 people got grades in the 70s. The grades are 72%, 72%, 74%, 75%, 76%, and 79%.

I love math!! <3

Math: Integers

Integers are basically just numbers. We learned that there are positive numbers and negative numbers. A trick that we learned was that if there is a negative sign beside a negative sign you have to add the numbers.

Math: Classifying Triangles

When you classify triangles, there is a category where the classified triangles are from. For example, Triangles classified by their sides would be equilateral triangles, isosceles triangles, and scalene triangles. If you classified them by angles, they would be acute triangles, obtuse triangles, and right triangles.

Tests and Quizzes!

Studying is always important for strengthening an aspect of your education! Of course, tests could be really tough but if you are prepared, the test is just another homework assignment! Of course, you can't always get perfect on everything. Something I can do to help me with tests is to record myself going over the math concepts. Do you still not believe me? Look at these!

Our class blog is an amazing website that we can visit to get help on any subject we are doing in class.

This is a very good way to communicate about school work!

It is very helpful when we need to study for a test or just ask a question about homework.

Goals for Math!

IXl is a helpful and easy way to teach students math.

There are many skills for students to try from junior kindergarten to grade 12, as the IXL team continues to add more to their site.

IXL makes math even more interesting using their award system. As students make progress, answering and mastering skills, they will receive a virtual prize. To see what it is, students will go to the award page and a flashing icon will appear. After they click the icon, the virtual prize will appear as a picture.

Khan Academy

Khan Academy was created in September 2006 by Salman Khan (the educator) to help children in schools with their math, science, economics/finance, arts/humanities, computing and test preps. Our wonderful principal Mrs. Punjabi introduced this website 2 years ago. With the help of the videos that Khan Academy creates, it

enhances the schools performance in math and many students benefit from this website.

IXL

Learning new math concepts may be difficult. That is why we have our math journals. Math journals are used to write new concepts we learn in different units like fractions and multiplying decimals. We use the journal to describe and learn the concept. Afterward, when we have an upcoming test or an assignment. We can use the journal as a study guide.

Math journals

are awesome!

Bump it Up!

Bump it up is a way our teacher can track how we are doing in online sites such as our blog, IXL and Prodigy. It encourages us students to finish our homework on time and not be late to hand in our work. After our time limit is up for our homework, our teacher will add check marks next to students that have finished the homework goal. We get to track our learning progress.

Why Do I Like Math?

Mí͇͔̠ś̷͎̹̲̻̻̘̝t̞̖͍͚̤k̥̞à̸͕̮͍͉̹̰͚̰ẹ̶̢̪s͏̨͈̙̹̜͚̲ ̛̬͓͟

As my parents and all my teachers have told me, math can be used at anytime of my life. From solving a puzzle in a video game or trying to construct your own catapult, math is in it all! This made me think that if I am really good at math, I would be really good in almost everything! Therefore, math is a shortcut route to almost everything!

Prodigy

Prodigy is a game created on September, 10, 2012 in Burlington, ON. This game is similar to the classic game Pokémon, but with a twist. It involves math in the game! Our keen teacher Mrs. Singh uploads tasks that we have to do on Prodigy. We have 1 week to do our assessment. Prodigy also includes the leaderboard system. Satnam Purewal is at the top of the class. We get questions that we learn from a unit in class.

Goals are awesome to keep yourself working on something you set your self to do. They are like notifications that help you with whatever your goal was. For me, math is a priority that I love doing. My goals for math would be for me to learn a new method of solving equations or just learning a whole new unit! Goals aren't always simple like just learning a new unit because you can always go for the best possible which would be perfecting a whole new unit.

In our classroom, we have many charts to help us with solving different math problems. They are very handy to use when I don't understand a homework question because it is like a review for the unit.

Ticket out the door is a creative way for Mrs. Singh to mark our math. Sometimes she would tell us to find all the factors of 100 (1,2,5,10,20,25,50,100) or she would tell us the greatest common factor (GCF) of 25 and 15 (it's 5). The way we would post our answers is on a post it note.

For example

If the question

is: "find all the

factors

of 72?" we would

write...

Digital Portfolios!

Digital portfolios are one of the best ways to track your progress throughout the year. To me, digital portfolios are fun and easy work trackers. When you do something in class, you could put the same thing in your digital portfolio. Plus, it benefits us in many ways. For example, if you needed an assignment but you lost it in your files on your computer, if you saved it on your digital portfolio, there is nothing to worry about! As I said, it benefits us in many ways. I get to share what I learn at school with my parents. I also get to track how well I am doing in school. Another way it helps us is because all the work you put in your digital portfolio, you can review when you are in grade 8! I enjoy working on my digital portfolio because I get to use my creative mind!

Everyone makes mistakes and it's not bad to make one. For example, when I learn something new, I don't instantly know everything about it. I make some mistakes and I learn from them. That is the beauty of making mistakes. Mistakes just sound bad on the outside but really just improve your intelligence so you know what to do after that happens again! Now the next time you think your going to make a mistake or you are scared of making one, just remember that you learn from it!

Mathematical Processes

Sometimes, there are challenging words when we learn new math terminology. For that reason, we have a math vocabulary section on our math wall! Any words that are challenging and are new to see, go on the math wall. This is very helpful for homework when we don't understand something. Therefore, the math vocabulary section is a very handy and useful tool when we learn something new or need help on a confusing word!

The mathematical process is yet another chart to help us with math! We use this chart to help us with problem solving when we don't understand the criteria. Plus, you would probably need this chart for homework or even class work! All in all, the mathematical process chart is a useful guide to help us problem solve in the proper criteria.

In Math, we solve mathematical problems. Sometimes we create groups and solve challenging problems using simple steps to make the question seem easier. The questions help make us think how our strategy helps us out in the real world and more! Working in groups helps us learn from our peers!

The math wall is, as the name suggests, is a wall of math! We have everything on this wall that relates to math! If you ever thought that you needed help in math, just look at the math wall! At the top of the wall, we have put a row of integers. Right below that we have stated many math websites that we can go on to practice anything in math on. Now, below those, we have 2 charts that explain The Four Step Problem Solving Plan and The Math Seven. We're not done yet! Beside the 2 charts we have math vocabulary, Today's Problem, and Students Work! As you can see, there is everything on the math wall to help us with math in class!

Peers

Teacher

Our teacher always wants us to improve and so do our peers! There are some quizzes that our teacher lets our peers mark for us because we are getting feedback from our friends! Lets not let our peers do all the work. Our teacher also marks our tests and quizzes and gives us detailed feedback so we understand what we need to add and practice! Feedback also lets us know what we did well on so we can continue to succeed in the future.

Manipulatives are useful math tools to help us in math. Metre sticks, number lines and fraction strips are all manipulatives.

When the Ministry of Education and Superintendent (Mrs. Joy Uniac) came to our school, I presented our fabulous math wall with 2 other students. We also had another math prezi to present and they really enjoyed our presentation! We were filmed and our presentation continues to play on the TV at the front entrance of the school!

Math talk is a helpful tool that we can use in class to be prepared for any math questions Mrs.Singh (our teacher) asks us! There are many questions listed on the math talk booklet which Mrs.Singh might ask us in class. This is a very convenient tool that I use to help me be prepared for any question!

That's me!
