scribe post march 24 2009

Number of the day is homework everyday. But we didn't have time to do it because we had a quiz. Before we did the quiz we wrote down these notes.

How do we make an angle bisector?

1. Free hand , not perfect and not accurate enough.

2. Protractor

3. Compass

a) arc from vertex

b) arc from pt. s (intersection of line and arc)

c) arc from pt. t (intersection of line and arc)

d) line from arc intersection to vertex that is you angle bisector

After the notes we started on the test. There was two pages, four sides and 40 questions.

Here are some of the questions.


T-1. The height of a parallelogram is always perpendicular to its base.

F-2. The area of a parallelogram is calculated using its length and width.

F-3. The formula of a triangle is A= b x h.

T-4. Lines in the same plane that do not intersect are called parallel lines.

T-5. Angle bisectors can be constructed by using a compass and a ruler.

Multiple choice

C- 15. A perpendicular line segment is a line segment that

a. divides an angle into two equal parts

b. divides another line segment in half

c. divides another line segment in half and forms an angle of 90 degrees

d. forms an angle of 90 degrees with another line segment


26. Lines that intersect at right angles are called perpendicular lines.

27. The height of a parallelogram is always at a right angle to its base.

28.The formula for the area of a triangle is A= b x h/2

29. You can find the area of a parallelogram if you know its base and height.


a. area of a parallelogram e. obtuse angle

b. area of a rectangle f. height

c. area of a triangle g. line segment

d. acute angle h. vertex

b- 33. A= l x w

d- 34. an angle that is less than 90 degrees

a- 35. A= b x h

c- 36. A= b x h/ 2

h- 37. a point on a figure where two sides meet

Short answer

38. What are two methods for drawing an angle bisector?

- Protractor and ruler or compass


40. George is painting a triangular mural to cover one of his attic walls. How much area will George have to paint?

I hoped you liked the video
I pick Raquel Lorenzo for the next blog :D

Heeey . sorry its kinda late .

number of the day today -8756.934 Homework Everday.

Bisect - Bi meants " cut "
Sect means "two"
so Bisect means to cut in two .

perpendicular- a line that divides a line segment in half and is at right angles to it .

This is how you can create or draw a Perpendicular Bisector

1. Free hand O.K but not perfect.
2.Protractor gets us 90 degree angle .
Ruler cuts line in half
Cooler way to do it .
3. Use a compass and create arcs. Open compass and create arcs to greater than half the distance of a line.

B) Place compass on pt. A draw an arc,
C) Place compass on pt. B draw and arc,
D) Use a ruler to connect the intersections of the arcs that line is a perpendicular bisector.

acute angle- angle that is less than 90 degrees
abtuse angle- angle that is greater than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.

Angle Bisector- the line that divides an angle into two equal parts.

this is an example of an angle bisector .

so , basically all we did today was notes , we just copied down the notes today .
theres no homework , except for number of the day , and STUDY STUDY STUDY , for the test tommorow.

I hope you liked my scribe post, next i pick kisha . good luck .

March 11 , 2009 .

heello !

today we didn't really do anything but TLE .
Oh and , for the people who haven't done TLE yet , the subject we had to do is
Rates and Ratio's .

Since I forgot
to do yesterday's blog , I'm going to talk about yesterday's math . Yesterday , the number of the day was 7835.621 .

Mr.Isfeld told us to work on our text book work , page 198 questions 2 - 14 .
We had to do these
Probability tree's and tables .

For example , if you were to flip a coin and roll a die , what are the possible outcomes
that the coin will land on
heads and the die to roll a 4 ?
First , you would have to make a Tree Diagram for the die .

It might look like this :

A probability tree diagram shows all the possible events.
The first event is represented by a dot.
From the dot, branches are drawn to represent all possible outcomes of the event.
The probability of each outcome is written on its branch

Then , for the coin , you need to draw a Table Diagram .
Which would look something like :

Sample space:
{ H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6,
T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6 }

The probability of each of these outcomes is 1/2 • 1/6 = 1/12

And to end this off , I am going to ask a probability question ,
and you must answer it in the comments box .

An ice chest contains 9 cans of apple juice , 8 cans of grape juice , 7 cans of orange juice , and 5 cans of pineapple juice . If you reach into the container and randomly select 3 cans from the chest , what's the probability of selecting no grape juice ?

For the next post , I choose .. DARNELL .

Today in math class we did Number of the Day and its homework everyday. The number was 7362.415.

We also learned key words about probability. These are the key words we learnt:
independent event the outcome of one event has no effect on the outcome of another event

sample space is all possible outcomes of an experiment

tree diagram a diagram used to organize outcomes. contains a branch for each possible outcome of an event.

And we also learnt how to make a tree diagram and a probability chart.

Today in math we did the NUMBER OF THE DAY which is homework everyday. The number was 7839.126. We also did work on a MATH LINKS book, we had to do page number 162 ,1-12 questions.

We had to solve questions about PROBABILITY, also probability means -the like/liked or chance of an event occuring and we had to solve how much the FAVOURABLE and POSSIBLE OUTCOME was, also the PERCENT, FRACTION, and RATIO.

oh by the way HI ISFELD (:

Hey Everyone!
Today in class we did number of the day and the number was 6918.205. We also corrected our Practise Test with algebraic equations like 7e+8=29 and 4x+2+3x=9. Isfeld gave us word equations where we had to show ALL of our work including the operation, verification and the answer in a sentence.

Eg. There are 2 more than half as many boys in the class as girls. If there are 12 girls how many boys are there.

This is what I came up with...


There are 8 boys in the class.
We corrected the balancing act and these are the answers.....
triangles =3

Hello Classmates and Teachers,

I'm gonna tell you what we did today in class ( Thursday February 12 , 2009 First Peroid)

Today in class we were doing T.L.E in Mr.Lamberts room.

The lesson we did today in T.L.E was Linear Equations 2.

The self check for this lesson was somewhat out of 9 so you had to atleast get 7 out of 9 to get a check mark beside the lesson.

Since some of the kids in the class finished early we went to a site called

http://www.coolmath4kids.com/to play some math games to keep us busy until the end of the class.

So Today we didn't do number of the day.

Anyways remember we have no school on Monday and have a great long weekend !

Today in math class we did # of the day, a quiz about range, outliers, median, mode, and mean, another thing we did today was a balancing act.

# of the day-3179.269

Range-lowest # - Highest # = answer example, (1,2,3,4,5) 5-1=4!!

Outlier-The number that is very different from the others

Median-The middle number in a set of numbers Example, (3,6,9,12,15) median is 9

Mode-The number that shows more often than the others Example, (22,27,58,22,26) mode is 22

Mean-The average number Example (12,15,14,19) add all up then divide by how many the # is, the mean is 15.

Here is the Balancing Act we did today!!

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Heey Everyone !

Today in math class we did number of the day and we did text book work. It was about range and outlier.

range- 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 777, 88.
you take the smallest number , and the biggest number and you subtract it from each other.

Outlier- 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 777, 88.
777 dosent fit in with that set of numbers because its a odd number.

Hi you guys ! Sorry my post is a little late but here it is...

I did it wrong so you have to check out this link my-blog.

I am so sorry Isfeld. You are such a great teacher I can't believe I still did it wrong, thanks for fixing it.

Please leave comments on this site and not on my blog site.

Friday, January 16, 2009

Congrats to All of You! :D

Great job you guys!

It has only been 2 days since you were taught how to use Blogger (better), and you guys are using those notes pretty fast. It's also nice to see that a lot of people are leaving comments behind. Keep it up! If you do, we'll hopefully see more visitors checking out our blog (by looking at the Cluster Map). I'm sure that Mr. Isfeld and Mr. Harbeck are also very proud of you all.

Keep up all the great work!

Today we learned how to make a scribe post follow these steps and you can make one too...

LINK - Highlight a word and press the green link button, then look for a site that you think will build interest. Then copy and paste the URL. After you get a link click on preview and test the link.

IMAGE - Find a image on Google images then save it to your computer then browse and find the image that you saved (delete image after if you don't want it). Then you can change the layout and the size of the image if you choose to. Then press upload image after that press done.

VIDEO - Then you can go to youtube and find a video that could build interest about the topic you are writing about. Once you have found a video click on it and go to the grey box and highlight and copy the code that is in the box beside the word embed. Then click on Edit Html scroll to the bottom then paste the code, then click compose and then click preview.

- To change the font click the arrow next to the word font then scroll down and find a font that you like and that others can read.

- To change the colour click the T with the multi coloured square and then change the colour of the important facts and titles don't use too many colours or else it will be to distracting also avoid light colours like yellow because what ever you wrote will be hard to read.

To change the size click the double T's then choose the size you want to write with don't make the size too small or too large.

(This is also the h.w.)We worked on some mode, mean, median, range and outlier problems the problems were...

A - 17,7,16,23,24,23,27,28,23

B - 14,8,7,11,12,8


Find the prime factors of 42 using a factor tree.

Thank you for looking at my post please
comment. I choose Jarret to scribe next.
