We have moved onto the next unit in Science, Cells and Systems. So far students have covered two topics:
1) Characteristics of Living Things
2) Levels of Organization - Notes are attached below. Students will spend some time this week working on an assignment based on levels of organization.
,In Math students have been working on converting percents, fractions and decimals. Much of it is review from last year but in Grade 8 students are expected to further their understanding by being able to problem solve with percents greater than 100% and percents between 0 and 1.
This week we will be moving on to Ratios, Rates and some Proportional Reasoning.
