We will be finishing up our Algebra and Patterning unit this week and as always, students are given ample time and preparation to revise and get ready for the end of unit test on Thursday, March 11.
Here are some review videos of all the concepts we have learned for this unit:
* This video has two examples with exponents. You DO NOT need to know exponents. Watch the first two examples until 2:10
Solving Equations (Balancing)
* This video has one example at the end with negative numbers. You DO NOT need to know this. We are only using whole numbers. Watch the first three examples until 4:15
Writing Equations from Word Problems
Students are encouraged to use IXL algebra and patterning recommendations and assigned tasks from Miss Mellenthin and Mrs. Thompson, alongside paper practise. Here are the worksheets to print if you prefer paper copies (5B have copies in their bags):
- Simplifying expressions
- The balancing act
- Find the value (1 step)
- Graphing Inequalities
- Word Problems
To help you study at home, here is a study planner, as well as tips for how to study!
Early next week we will also be sharing a full review package.
As always, there will be check-in sessions in class with the teacher and peer mentoring opportunities. If you need to reach out, please do not hesitate!

Every year, students participate in a Blogging Bingo challenge to inspire them to write on their blogfolios more often. Right now, all students posts things to their blogfolios that their teachers ask them to; some students independently write posts of their choosing; and some students want to write more but don’t know what to write.
In an effort to inspire and spark creativity while also building new tech and media literacy skills, we have created this Blogging Bingo Challenge.
Students can work on this challenge throughout the whole year. There are some rules, though….obviously!
- All posts must follow our guidelines of what makes a quality post in order to be counted towards the challenge
- All comments must follow the guidelines of what make a quality comment
- Writing and drawings cannot be rushed just to complete the task
And for added incentive, here are the prizes!
