Math: Integers – Comparing & Adding Overview
We are learning to compare integers
We are learning to add integers
|Principle 1:||The sum of two negatives is negative.|
|Principle 2||The sum of two positives (+) is positive.|
|Principle 3:||The sum of a (-) and a (+) will take the sign of the number that is farther from zero (0).|
Math – Fractions: Reducing, Adding & Subtracting, Converting
We area able to reduce fractions into their lowest terms:
- List all of the factors for each number of the fraction
- Find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two numbers
- Divide the numerator and the denominator by the GCF to reduce the fraction to its lowest terms
We are learning to add and subtract fractions
- Find the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) of the denominators
- Create equivalent fractions using the LCM as the common denominator
- Add/Subtract the numerators (keeping the denominators the same)
- Simplify and reduce fraction to lowest terms
We are learning to convert between improper and mixed fractions:

- History: Why did the population of New France increase slowly during the 1600-1700s?
- 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:
- 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:
- order of operations / BEDMAS
- simplifying algebraic expressions
- solving algebraic expressions
- metric conversions
- area & perimeter
- Data Management
- collecting and organizing data
Poll: Lebron or Kobe
