MPM1D Final culminating task 2016-06-16

Okay, EQAO is done! Woot!

One more task for you. We’ll have a double block tomorrow (Friday), so you’ll be here until about 11:30. I don’t think the assignment will take quite that long, but I want to make sure you have enough time and aren’t pressured.

Make sure you finish and submit the measurement/geometry assignment too.

Thanks for all your patience with the provincial testing. I really appreciate it!

MPM1D Want more practice? 2016-06-09

Some of you asked for more practice work. Here’s a link to a past EQAO assessment (2013-2014). The questions are typical, but they’re all in a single book (not the two-book format you’ve seen already).

Questions from 2014: http://www.eqao.com/en/assessments/grade-9-math/assessment-docs/9e-Acad-2014.pdf

Answers from 2014 multiple choice: http://www.eqao.com/en/assessments/grade-9-math/assessment-docs/9e-Acad-Key-2014.pdf

Answers from 2015 multiple choice (the one from class)http://www.eqao.com/en/assessments/grade-9-math/assessment-docs/g9-academic-answer-key-2015.pdf

Remember: most of you are writing the EQAO assessment on Wednesday, June 15 and Thursday, June 16 during our regular class period (8:55am-10:10am). Each day the assessment will take 60 minutes, which doesn’t leave a lot of flex time before and after, so please be on time (or early!).

MPM1D Assignment correction 2016-06-07

I made a couple of mistakes in the assignment.

On Page 4 I asked you to find the radius of a sphere given its volume. That requires you to take a cube root, which we don’t do in the course. Instead, just find r^3 , the radius cubed, which is part of the volume formula.

On Page 10 the last figure is a pentagon on a rectangle. I meant to indicate that the pentagon was regular, meaning all side lengths are equal and all angles are equal. I remembered the side lengths, but I missed the angles.

MPM1D Parallel Lines and Transversals; Assignment 2016-06-06

We learned about parallel lines and transversals today. It’s a repeat from Grade 7 or 8, but it was new for a lot of people. If you weren’t here, check out this page:

Here are a few pages of geometry practice for your homework:

Angle Practice 2 EQAO

Because there are a lot of events in the next few days, I handed out a summary you can use to organize your learning in these two sections:

Skills Summary – Measurement (booklet)

Skills Summary – Measurement

Skills Summary – Plane Geometry (booklet)

Skills Summary – Plane Geometry

And finally I handed out an assignment. You need to complete it independently. Normally we do this sort of thing in class, but so many people will be missing time in the next few days that I’m letting you complete this at home. You can talk to me at school or email me with questions. It’s due “soon”, which means the sooner you hand it in the sooner I can return it to you with feedback. I need it on Monday, June 13th, at the very, very latest. Sooner is better.

Update: I made a couple of mistakes in the assignment.
