We have started our Fractions Review. Students should be familiar with the following math vocabulary: Numerator, Denominator, Proper Fraction, Improper Fraction and Mixed Number. Some students have completed addition and subtraction of Fraction but for our review we have used fraction strips to visually add and subtract fractions and well as looking at mixed fractions and improper fractions.
Today, students in 8E/8B reviewed how to convert Improper Fractions in Mixed Numbers. The following exercises were given in class and students are to continue working on the questions if they need to.
If any student needs a refresher. This video tutorial will go over the process again.

We continued with some practice and work on Order of Operations. We will be doing a short check in tomorrow to see how much progress has been made. We will continue to be using the Order of Operations rules throughout the units in Grade 8 Math. We will be starting work on our first Math 8 unit of the year, which will be Fractions!
If anyone would like to do some extra practice with Order of Operations. This is site that will provide some practice opportunities.
Students worked in groups today to complete the Four Fours activity. It was a challenging one but helped in reviewing order of operations. As a class we continued an Order of Operations review and students were given some time to work on a practice Order of Operations maze. We will continue this work tomorrow.
Attached below are solutions the students came up with for the Four fours activity.
If any student would like to review the Order of Operations procedure, this is helpful link that will go through Order of Operations as a video tutorial.
