The Final Final Term 3 Test Make-Up Day

I know we had the final test make-up day for this term on May 30, and thanks to all the students that came in after school on that day to write a test (or two) that they missed.  However, a bunch of you couldn't make it for various reasons (grad rehearsal, orthodontist appointment, hamster funeral, etc.). Therefore, the FINAL final test make-up day will be after school on Tuesday, June 6.  Just to be clear, there will be no final final final test make-up day.

Term 3 Test Make-Up Day

The last test make-up day this year will be on Tuesday, May 30.  If you are missing a test, please come by after school on that day to write it.  If you show up on make-up day, you need to be clear about which test you are missing.  If you are not sure, please check with me before the day.  I will not have time to look it up after school on the day.  Confused people have written the wrong test in the past (yes, the whole test), and it's not funny.  Okay, it's a little funny, but not for the person who wrote the wrong test.

Gauss Contest

The Gauss contest takes place on Wednesday, May 10 during period 8.  If you are in grade 8 and you would like to write the Gauss contest, please see me or talk to Mr. Marzouk in A207.  You  don't have to be in honours to write this math contest.  It's a great way to challenge yourself, to try some interesting math problems, or to experience the phenomenon that is a room full of math nerds.  Mr. Marzouk will be there.

It's Another Test Make-Up Day

If you are missing a test from earlier this school year, please come by after school on Tuesday, April 4 to make it up.  Please see me before this date if you're not sure which test(s) you missed. It's going to be fun!

Welcome Back from Spring Break!

Welcome back to everyone who checks this website regularly (i.e. nobody).  I hope you had a relaxing, mathless break.  Only 57 school days left...in case you were wondering.

Math 8 Portfolio for Term 3

Hello, Math 8 students!

Most of you did a really nice job with your math portfolios in term 2.  A few things to note:
  • Your comment should relate directly to the questions in your picture.  Try to comment specifically about that work, not a general description of what was covered in class.
  • If you're having trouble writing detailed comments, ask yourself how you would explain what you did to someone who has never seen this before.
  • Stop posting sideways pictures!!!
Some of you were having trouble posting consistently throughout the term and ended up posting a bunch of things at the very end of the term.  Therefore, to keep you on track, I would like to see at least one post each week this term.

Who loves online math portfolios?  You do!  Yay!
