Some great Scribbing going on!!!

Lost Algebra

I created a post on the weekend all about the algebra you are doing. I am reposting it for your amusement. Please complete as much of this as you can and leave a comment behind about how you did.

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.

The foundation to understanding algebra is to know integers. Here are two links that will reinforce what you need to know.

Try this Integer Quiz. If this is not familiar to you remember your order of operations and try again.

From this link you can see a movie on adding and subtracting integers. It is well done. If this link does not bring up the movie immediately click on the adding and subtracting integer link on the page.


Your first algebra lessons are dealing with words like term, variable, expression and equations.


Here are some helpful resources for you.
Extra help words to expressions
Extra help on variables and expressions

Here are three quizzes to see how well you did.

Substitution algebra
Solving Equations using Addition or Subtraction
Solving Equations using Division or Multiplication

Remember Leave comments to tell me how you did.

Scribes???

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

” 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.”

Try to scribe or comment daily.

Help the scribe

Some advise to bloggers. You need to be prepared to put a post up to the blog. People are counting on you to keep the scribe alive. If you are having difficulty post a blog and then go back in and edit the scribe.

To the scribes fellow classmates, If the scribe needs to have information added to it, post comments and add information you think will be helpful.

You all are doing a great job. I miss being at school. This is my link to you right now. Keep me informed and I will add comments if I can.

Keep scribbling.
