Great Job and extra Algebra Help
Harbeck
First thing we did today is: we filled out the matchmaker form for about 25 mins. Then he gave us some work to try in the overhead.
E.G1 3+x=9
x-9=14
x+3.2=6.7
Then we solved it together in the classroom.
Next we were going to learn the multiplication and division.
e.g 1
2/2 x 14/2 1} First isolate the variables.
x = 7 2} Cancel using the opposite sign.
2{7} = 14 3} Balance
4} subsitute to check
Then he assigned the class 3 pages of homework on dividing and multipliying.
After he let us do our homework pages 36 and 37. He also gave us as seperate work sheet to work on. On that page we have to do half of the multyping questions and the dividing questions.
Then finally he gave us 3 more examples so that we can understand the concept.
1. What did we do in class today?
---today we tried how to get the answer for the algebra for ex. x+9=12; 12-9=3; x=3
2. What did we learn during these activities?
--I learned how to get the unknown number
3. Was this new information or something I've seen in math or another class before?
-- Yes I’ve seen it last year at mr. pointon's class
4. Was the material difficult or easy to understand?
--at first it was difficult because i forgot to do it from last year
5. Is there something that I still don't understand and could ask my classmates to explain?
--yea some of them are confusing
6. Did anything else happen during class that would be fun to keep a record of?
-- Nope because there is no jokes from mr harbeck
mr.harbeck! sorry if i didn’t do this blog. Because i was busy from the fast few days so just cya tom kk!!
The next would be Janine
Remember me Grade 8’s. Since I have been gone …only two days you must be missing me. Even if you are not missing me here are some excellent links to reinforce your learning.
Your first algebra lessons are dealing with words like term, variable, expression and equations.
Here are some helpful resources for you.
Here are three quizzes to see how well you did.
Being a class scribe is a serious responsibility. You need to recapture the class for that day and post it for all to see.
As Richard has said in his posts
Try to scribe or comment daily.

Sorry I haven’t been commenting or visiting lately. I’ve been crazy studying for exams… But now that Second Semester has started at Daniel Mac. I’m back. Hahaha. Now that I have seen that you guys are scribing. There are some excellent scribes going on and I assure you they will get better. You just have to push around each other on the blog. That’s the evolution of a blogger right there. You guys have to compete with each other to see who’s the best blogger out there. Hahahaha.
There are plenty of Examples of scribing.
Yeah there all from the PC30S blog. Hahaha. Well you see. The purpose of a scribe is to inform the reader what your doing and by doing so you relearn what you learned that day making you just a bit more smarter. Also if the reader reads the scribe then they also relearn. To think about it. Scribing is all about learning and learning… etc.
So keep those scribes coming. And here’s a tip. Like in the examples that I posted. Try to use photos to make your scribe look even more better. Hahaha
