8W: SJCC Reflection and Last Points for SJCC Project

Hi Grade 8!

WOW! We’re almost there! Good to see a lot of you using your time to check your work and answers before your final submission of your SJCC Cumulative Project! SO proud of all of you for your dedication and grit in completing such a robust and strong project! Starting tomorrow we open up the grade 9 textbook and take a walk through: what do we already know? What and where is the new material? What areas do you have to work on before hand to be successful?

Last pointers for the SJCC Project!

  1. Submissions are open any time now!
  2. Don’t forget. NO EXTENSIONS after June 14th (Next Friday)
  3. Reflection. A reflection (minimum half page typed) including the following:-What was it like having a cumulative project?

    -What strategies did you use? What helped? What did not?

    -What did you find the most challenging?

    -What did you enjoy the most?

    -What are you most proud of?

    -What area did you grow (progress) in the most?

    -What would your suggestions be to next year’s grade 8’s and the teacher if I had to make any changes?

    -Anything else you want to share/comment about.

     

    Looking forward to seeing all your great work and progress come together!

Grade 8 SJCC Pool Prototypes: Real Life Math in Action!

Grade 8 has been busy working on their SJCC Pool Budget Proposals!

We’re getting down to the final expenses in our spreadsheets. It’s been a long yet meaningful process connecting all of our math strands to find the cost and amounts of “re-vamping” the outdoor SJCC pool and even adding a circular hot tub! Real Life Math in Action!

Students had to use scale models to find:

  • All costs of the pool for 3 months plus reno costs; such as the following:
    • electricity
    • water delivery
    • water charge
    • re-paving
    • re-tiling
    • painting
    • fencing
    • water consumption
    • evaporation rates
    • employees
    • employee E.I. and CPP Contributions
    • membership costs and possible algebraic equations to break even and make a profit
    • Taxes
  • Along with a graphed analysis when the budget proposal is complete, students also had to construct and make a scale model “prototype” of what their pool may look like.

Great work guys and gals! We’ll be completed the entire project in 2 weeks!

6R Homework: May 21st

Hi Grade Six

Your homework tonight is to find 5 objects at home (just identify and and list them) that are either a prism or a pyramid. List them and bring your list to school tomorrow!

We will be talking about them tomorrow as we move through surface area of 3-D shapes : )

Did You Know? Mrs. Cleveland has been busy!

Did you know that I have been planning the OAME (Ontario Association for Mathematics Education) conference for the past three years! and….tick tock…it’s now happen in just mere days! Yep! A whole province wide conference!!

We have over 1500 attendees of teachers, professionals and educators from across Ontario, as well as over 500 speakers and presenters from around the world visiting the conference for just over 3 days! WOW! It’s been so much work, but it’s been so worth it! Also, being able to work so closely to the one and only Marian Small, (who is the Head Chair) has been an absolute delight and experience I will treasure forever!

OAME 2019 is happening in Ottawa this year May 16-18. With my role and positions on both the board as a chair on this planning council, and with my executive role and position on the local board COMA (Carleton Ottawa Mathematics Association), soon to be O34ME, places me in an amazing position to not only prepare, organize and implement this conference, but also as my role here as Math Specialist at the OJCS, to bring some of my wonderful colleagues along to participate in many of the hundreds of sessions and courses being offered.

Mrs. Thompson, Mr. Kom, Mrs. Bennett, and Ms. Krantzberg will all be attending many wonderful and meaningful sessions this week at Ottawa University during the conference on Thursday and Friday. I am so proud of my colleagues and so look forward to learning with them, and bringing new ideas, inspiration, and math moments back to the OJCS!

Some of the sessions in which they will be attending are the following:

  • Harnessing the Power of Assessment in Mathematics
  • Number Structure: Reconceptualizing NUmbers with Depth, Breadth, ad Complexity
  • Creating Mathematical Possibility by Constraining Mathematical Possibility
  • Structures for Differentiating Middle Years Math
  • Teaching on the Edge of Understanding and the Speed of Learning
  • Teaching for Mastery
  • Improving Teacher voice in the Math Classroom
  • #slowmath: Reflecting, Connecting, Communicating
  • Strengthening Math Instruction and learning trajectories in K-1
  • Building Fluency in Junior and Int Grades
  • Math Thinking using Code
  • Personalized Learning Environments in Math
  • What does Understanding and Thinking actually look like as fundamentals in K-8 Math.

We will also be tweeting out and sharing our learning experience with our fellow colleagues here at the school as well as the greater digital community as we all continue to grow our own Personal Learning Networks.

You can follow all of our learning and time at this year’s conference by following the Twitter Hashtag #OJCSlearns, and also by following myself @mathemachic Mrs. Thompson @melissa_thomp Ms. Krantzberg @LKrantzberg

Can’t wait to have you all follow along with us as we bring the best math practices and techniques back to our classes to make math meaningful and momentous at the OJCS!

Yours in Mathematics,

Mrs. Cleveland
