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!

Math 8 Portfolio

The term 2 self-assessment questions are now available in your Fresh Grade portfolios.  Please give some thought to these questions and have them done by Friday, February 24.  Remember that this self-assessment represents 15% of your term mark.  If you don't complete it...bad things will happen.

If You Missed a Test This Term...

Due to "popularity" (sigh...) the day to make up a missed test this term will be split into two days, as follows:
1)  After school on Monday, February 20 if you are in grade 10, 11, or 12.
2)  After school on Wednesday, February 22 if you are in grade 8.

Unless previous arrangements have been made, you will not be allowed to write a make-up test if you show up on the wrong day.

Change to Test Make-Up Day

For people who were planning to come in after school on Thursday, January 12 to make up a test from before the Christmas holidays, please note that the date has been changed to Tuesday, January 17.  That means five extra days to study, and to feel shame for not writing the test on the original test day.

January Test Make-Up Day

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a fun-filled break.  It's now time to get back to teaching and learning.

If you missed a test before the holidays because you left early for vacation, because you were sick, or..."other reasons", please come in after school on Thursday, January 12 to make up the test you missed.  If you can't make it at this time, you will have another opportunity closer to the end of term 2.

Only 47 school days until Spring Break!
