 History: Why did the population of New France increase slowly during the 16001700s?
 Answer 1: New France was expensive for France to maintain and to get their industries going.
 Answer 2: Fewer women wanted to come – many had to be paid to go, e.g., The Filles du roi (the King’s daughters). Therefore, fewer people starting families (although they were paid to have 3, 12 children)
 Answer 3: Life was harsh in New France.

2014 Math: Data Management
We are now starting a unit on data management, where we will collect data by conducting a survey or experiment and recording their observations or measurements. The survey can be on:
 themselves
 their environment,
 issues in our school or community
 content from another subject
Next, students will be organizing this data into tables, charts and graphs that have appropriate titles, labels and scales.
We will be using Microsoft Excel to help us build electronic graphs for our data.
Our term 1 report cards will include the following strands of math:
 Number Sense:
 decimals
 order of operations / BEDMAS
 Algebra
 simplifying algebraic expressions
 solving algebraic expressions
 Measurement
 metric conversions
 area & perimeter
 Data Management
 collecting and organizing data
