Scribe Notes for Thursday, April 13, 2006.

Mr. Reece told us that there was a new scribe list he put up. We started the class with of course mental math. We then passed it to our neighbours to mark it. After mental math, Kim then handed out two lids to each group. Ashley also handed out on string of yarn to each group and Mr. Reece gave us meter sticks. Then Mr. Reece put up the only shape that isn't a polygon on the over-head, the circle. He showed us all the characteristics of the circle. He then showed us the " Center " of a circle. which is obviously the center of it :
.
Diameter : A line from one edge to another passing through the center.

Radius : Goes from the center, to the edge.

Circumfrence: Is the perimiter of the circle

We then did an activity where we used all the supplies everyone had handed out and figured out each of the attributed of the circle. Class was then over. We had no homework. But there is a blogger assignment due on April 19th, 06. The next scribe will be .....

LENAAARD SERAPIO-oh-oh-oh oh..

Fill The Buckets

Gino's mom has told him he needs to take a bucket of water over to their neighbor since she is experiencing problems with her water supply. He doesn't want to waste much time since he has a soccer game to play in later in the afternoon. From past experience he knows if he uses the small hose it takes 45 minutes to fill the bucket with water. He also knows that the larger hose can do the same in 30 minutes. If he uses both hoses, how long will it take him to fill the bucket?

Scribe List

I have decided to reset the scribe list. Everyone in the class who wishes to be the scribe for the day will earn the right to post the scribe notes. As well as the scribe posts are not mandatory, you can chose to opt out of the scribe posts. You must inform either myself or the previous scribe with your decision to not conplete the scribe post so that we can chose a new scribe. Remember you earn bonus marks upto the equivalent of two blogger assignments for completing the scribe post.

This is The Scribe List. Every possible scribe in our class is listed here. I will do my best to update this list every day. If you see someone's name crossed off on this list then you CANNOT choose them as the scribe for the next class.

This post is can be quickly accesed from the [Links] list over there on the right hand sidebar. Check here before you choose a scribe for tomorrow's class when it is your turn to do so.

Scribe For April 4th 2006

In Class today we did a type of Geoboard thing on paper. We had to make shapes that had to have a total of five sides or more. Mr. Reece gave a specific number of line segments which we had to draw.It could be no more than or less than that number he gave us.

We also started a new book. Remember at the beginning of the year when we did Mental Math?
Well, guess What! Mr. Reece gave us these books with 60 pages of mad minutes. It should only take you one minute to do a page, but since Mr. Reece is so nice, he;s giving us three minutes!!

Also, Mr. Reece will now be using a medium sized black dot instead of this x. So now it will look like this: 5943 DOT 10= 59430, NOT this 4572649027646573 X 0=0.

so watch out for that and please don't mess up on it's not that much more different than the X!!

Mr. Reece, I'm TERRIBLY SORRY THAT THERE ARE NO PICTURES, BECAUSE THE COMPUTER PROBABLY HAD A VERY BAD DAY TODAY AND DID NOT LET ME IMPORT PICTURES FROM THE INTERNET.


PS: SORRY MR. REECE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
