AIM: How can we prepare for the NYS Math Assessment? Announcements: The NYS Math Assessment will take place Tuesday, May 2 to Thursday, May 4. There will be an exam Friday, April 28. Questions will be taken directly from the review packet. HW: Percent change & Simple Interest worksheets Do Now: Your friend wants to borrow some money. You agree, but say they have to pay you back plus 8% of whatever they borrow. Your friend wants to borrow $16. How much money will they owe you? Classwork: Today, we discussed the method for calculating simple interest. Students used the formula: I = prt, where I=interest, p=principal, r=rate, and t=time in years. We also discussed that in order to find the percent of change, we can use: (Newold)/old Resources:
AIM: What is volume and what strategies can we use to find the volume of any prism?
Announcements: The NYS Math Assessment will take place Tuesday, May 2 to Thursday, May 4. HW: NYS Math Assessment Review Packet #90103 Do Now: If you were to cut out this picture and fold it along the dotted lines to make a 3D shape, what shape would you get? Explain. Classwork: We looked at volume today and how it is used to measure the space inside a 3D objects. We focused on prisms today (mostly rectangular) and related finding the volume to a deck of playing cards. One card alone is 2dimensional, however when we start stacking cards on top of each other, a 3dimensional figure emerges. From this, we derived the formula V=Bh which finds the area of the prism base, and multiplies it by the height of the entire prism. Resources: AIM: How can we find the area and circumference for a circle? Announcements: The NYS Math Assessment for 7th Grade will be May 46. Please begin your preparations now. HW: NYS Math Assessment Review Packet #5289 Do Now: Determine the circumference of the circle. (Circle with radius of 8 in.) Classwork: Continued from yesterday... We investigated the world of circles today. A circle is a round 2D figure whose points are the same distance from a center point. Circles also have diameters, which are segments that pass through the center and connect one side to the other. A radius is half the length of the diameter. It is a segment from the center to any point on the circle. Since circles are special figures, they also have a special name for their perimeter, which is a circumference. This can be calculated by taking the diameter and multiplying it by pi (C=pi*d). It's important to remember that if you're given the circle's radius, you need to double it first to get the diameter. Finding the area of a circle requires us to use the formula A=(pi)r^2. Remember to follow the order of operations and square the radius first before multiplying that amount by pi. Again, sometimes you'll be given the diameter, in which case you need to divide it in half to get the radius value which is substituted into the formula. Resources:

AIM: How can we find the area and perimeter of 2dimensional shapes? Announcements: The NYS Math Assessment for 7th Grade will be May 46. Please begin your preparations now. HW: NYS Math Assessment Review Packet #2434 Do Now: Look at the figure below. Which color represents the perimeter of the figure, and which color represents the area of the figure? Explain your reasoning. (Green arrow with black bordering) Classwork: Students discussed the difference between area and perimeter, and how to calculate each. Students created formula sheets that can be referenced to find the area/perimeter of parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids. Tomorrow, we will extend the lesson to include circles. We also discussed methods to finding the area and perimeter of composite figures, which are figures made up from other shapes. For example, a composite figure could be two rectangle joined together to make an Lshape. Sometimes a composite figure could be a triangle joined to a rectangle. The key to finding the area and perimeter is to break the figures up in figures you can work with (by using dotted lines), and then finding the lengths needed to perform calculations. Resources:
AIM: How can we make line plots and box plots? Announcements: The NYS Math Assessment will take place Tuesday, May 2 to Thursday, May 4. HW: NYS Math Assessment Review Packet #123 (found below) Do Now: Draw a box plot for the following data. 5, 2.5, 6, 8, 9, 2, 1, 4, 6.2, 18, 7 Classwork: From yesterday... Data is facts and statistics collected together for reference or analysis. When presented as a list, data can be difficult to understand. We looked at two different ways to organize and display data so that it is easier to read, interpret, and understand. The first display is a line plot. Line plots are number lines with "X" or circles above numerical values to show the frequency of data values. The second display type is a boxandwhisker plot. This is also known as a fivepoint summary because it is uses the least value, first quartile, median, third quartile, and greatest value. The power of a box plot is that is gives us the highlights of a data set so that we may interpret it quickly. More on box plots below. Resources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fPORMpSovU
