Scribe notes for Feburary 23rd

What we did in class
What we did in class was we measured are height and filled out the sheet where you convert percent to number. How we got the number is percent/100=decimal then decimal x your height. At end of the class we we had to measured are body parts Arm span, wrist to elbow, foot hand, baby finger, head circumference, head lenth, shoulder width, shoulder to fingtip, waist to knee then we had to get the percent. How we got the percent was you take your height then divide it by the body part then x by 100.

Homework
No homework for today

Next scribe
The next sribe will be

New look to the blog

As everyone might notice their is a new look to the blog today. As there are four seperate classes of grade 7 math, I have decided that all four classes should have their own unique look and feel to the blog.

So while everything has a new look to it here at 7-43, you should quickly be able to adapt to your posh new surroundings.


Have fun blogging everyone!

Scribe Notes for Feburary 22nd 2006

In case you didn't know I am the first person in room 7-43 to do a scribe. A scribe is where someone retells what we did in class today. Today in class we compared our mystery objects that we measured yesterday. We talked about how to do a scribe and what it is. We also talked about the new assignment on Mr.Reece's blog site called "Blogeramma" which is listed on our blog site for 7-43. If you want to find out more about scribes then go to the links on the right hand side of our blog. There are three links they are: A scribe list, what is expected of the scribe and the last one are examples of great scribe posts. These are very helpful links if it is your turn to do the daily scribe and you are having trouble with it. What we did for the last half of the class was look at how to determine a percent of your body height. Here is the chart that we made up to figure the percents out using our body height.


100% is the same as you height
75% Add the answers you get from 50% and 25%
50% Divide you height by two
37.5% Add the answers you get from 25% and 12.5%
25% Divide you height by four
12.5% Divide the answer you get from 25% by two
10% Divide you height by ten
1% Divide you height by 100


OR
Convert the percent to a decimal by dividing the number by 100. So you chart should look something like this one Below.

100% = 1
75% = 0.75
50% = 0.50
37.5% = 0.375
25% = 0.25
12.5% = 0.125
10% = 0.10
1% = 0.01
