Hey 9-05! Anyways, today in math we started off by reviewing what we should have learned from yesterday's homework.

From our homework, we should have learn two important words: Angle & Side.
* The sum of all interior angles should equal to 180°

You should know 3 different ways to write an angle.

For example, we will try to say the 90° angle in the bottom left corner of the triangle.
may be written as:

∠B or ∠ABC or ∠CBA

*Remember to put the "Fancy" angle symbol

Next, we talked about naming sides, in 3 different ways.

For example we'll use side "C" or the "slanted side."
It may be written
AC or CA or b
I know, you're thinking what? Why "b"? Well it's for a simple reason actually.

*Opposite angles name the line, in other words; The side that is opposite of the angle, is named after that angle remember it

1:56 pm: We went to get our textbooks

After getting our textbooks, we reviewed some questions people were stuck on.

2:10 pm: We looked at question 6 on the giant paper with all the rectangles (Activity Sheet 6.2)

6) If the ratio of the lengths of two similar rectangles is 5 : 1, what will be the ratios of the areas?

You need to find the area of each square using the formula: A = S² Then, compare the areas.

A = S²
A = 5²
A = 25 u²

A = S²
A = 1²
A = 1 u²

The ratio of the area is: 25 : 1 *Ratios don't have unit values

2:14 pm: Aleiah asked an "Aleiah Question."

A few minutes later, we were given a question.

In the expression 1 : 8 what does the 1 stand for?
  • One thing (image) on the scale will be 8 times bigger
What does 5 : 2 mean?
  • 5 units will be 2 units
Where do you see enlargements and reductions in real-life?
  • Billboards
  • Blueprints
  • On your television
  • And a lot more!

Find "x".

1) Find out how 1.2 got to 3.96
2) Multiply how 1.2 got to 3.96 by the number on the other side (330).
3) Right down the product

I find this to be the easiest way, but there is another way you could solve this by.

Multiply 3.96 by 330 = 1306.8
Divide the product by 1.2 = 1089
x = 1089

  • Journal (everyday)
  • Study for our test which is supposedly TOMORROW!
  • There will be 16 questions on the test
  • There will be 1 "hard" triangle question
  • The test will also include scale diagrams, enlargements, and reductions (Chapter 4.1 & 4.2)
  • Leave a comment (:
Finally, the next scribe will be......T..R...A..C..E...Y..! Tracey! Good Luck(:

Sorry guys if its a bit late :)

Okay so today we talked reviewed a few 4.2 questions then we talked about similar triangles. Here are the notes we took ! :

Similar Triangles


Rules for Similarity

SAS- Side,Angle, Side

ASA-Angle, Side, Angle

SSS- Side,Side,Side

If a triangle has corresponding sides that are proportional, then the triangles are similar. (SSS)

If a side and another side are proportional and the angle is congruent then the triangles are similar (SAS)

If two angles are congruent and one side is proportional then the triangle are similar. (ASA)

Kinds of Triangles !

Right Angle

-one angle is 90 degrees.


-two sides equal

-two angles equal


-three unequal sides


one angle> 90 degrees


-all sides equal

4.3 Reflect and Check, Show You Know, and Check Your Understanding. Make sure you read.

I'm sorry I need to add more stuff to the scribe tomorrow, its late and the internet was off.

Hello "The Class"! Sorry, that I posted it so late.
So, today in math class we went to the LAB! (: Once we got our computers logged in, we visited We when to chapter 4 We first started of with proportioner.

The purpose for site, I never really got it. It was confusing for me. So, if you want to check it out here's the site: Also if you still don't get it, click on the user's guide and read the instructions (as Mr Backe would say).

Here's another site about proportioner. The purpose for this site is, I'm not also sure because I couldn't find the instructions. But you want to check it out, here's the site:

The last site that we went on was, we when to web games and click on scaling jigsaw. Here's the site:
Now for this one, I understood it very well. You must make each puzzle pieces fit the puzzle by making it larger or smaller. This game was pretty fun. So, if you liked it, you should play it again.

~write in your journals
~study for the next test

Well, that's it. Hope you liked it, sorry that it was late and a lot of them was not clear. PLEASE COMMENT ON MY MISTAKES OR ANYTHING !! :) The next scribe will be......................... Liem! DUN DUN DUN :) LOL

Hello people that I know from my school, today Mr Backe wasn't here so we had math class in our homeroom. The whole class was pretty much a work period.

So YAY! Isn't this convenient for you guys stuck at home because of the snow or sickness.

If you DON'T REMEMBER THE HOMEWORK from last time we had to do....

  • 4.2 The whole section in our mathlinks hard coverbooks.

  • The worksheets from before if you didn't finish (the ones about volume ratios).

  • The foldy thing work sheet the one where there is work that you have to do and you have to fold the paper.

  • Any other textbook work that you didn't finish from before.

  • The chapter 4 introduction sheet.

Well thats all for now and if I have forgoten something about the homework from last time just comment because I am a sucky mc baby for not remembering.

The next scribe will be ANYBODY THAT HASN'T DONE A SECOND SCRIBE YET because I am being nice and not picking on anybody!

Dont even think about it nicky!

Hello 9-05!In the start of today's class we talked about the homework. After that Me and Rinorm didn't get anything he was saying so we asked about what a Scale Factor is.What Reduction meant and what enlargement meant.

Scale Factor-Is the Number you multiply the original number by to get an enlargement.

Reduction-A reduction has to have a scale factor greater than one but less than zero.

Enlargement-Is anything greater than one.

Mr.Backe gave us a sheet of paper with a bunch of shapes looking like a person. We had to make the original figure then enlarge it by two. The original looked like this.

Uhmm I couldn't upload any pictures.Sorry!! Ill go back in the near future and put them in next time I have a chance.okay?Well sorry about that.

Homework:The sheet that has all those things on it.yeah have fun.Oh yeah!the next scribe is....Hmmm..Dean Sauddin!!haha just because you sit beside me.PEACE!


Wednesday, January 20, 2010
Hello, my fellow 9-05 classmates. Today, I will attempt to do a scribe for yesterday. I know what you are asking and nodding your heads about. I'm deeply sorry for missing my part in yesterday's scribe. Brendan (goatboy) wasn't at school and I didn't fill him in. By the way, beware for the harsh content that you are about to see. I'm just kidding you fools. Now listen up! Or in this case read..


If you are wondering what this is for its just measurements that Mr. Backe wanted us to understand. From smallest measurement to biggest measurement.
Next is the show you know question in between the pages 130-135.

This triangle is 2 cm long I think

shape-triangle.<span class=gif"> 

To enlarge it 3 times bigger you use this procedure
( / is actually the division sign, I can't use paint because it is "currently unavailable, please wait few months for it to get back to normal" -_-)

Another method:
x=33 1/3

That is all folks. Since you all were at school today. You should know the homework :)

And to make up for the missing of yesterday's scribe, I'm going to to today's too!

TODAY, we went to prairie theatre for a field trip to watch a play about human rights. It was called "Goodness"

Please tell me what I did wrong and I will decide whether I want to listen or not. I'm just kidding again! Thankyou for your time and patience.

This is going to be a short scribe. On Jan 18, we got our math test back. We went over all the answers, and Mr. B helped answer questions. Helped fix our mistakes.

This is a question most of the class got wrong.

We had to figure out the formula.

A of Square = 4² m²
A of Cirlce = pi r²
= pi 2²

(2.2)= 2²(2²)
= 4²

Formula is 2²(2² - pi )

Read 130-135
Work, Ask Questions Tomorrow
Show You Know
Check Your Understanding

I choose Rinorm for next scribe !

Ok well..this is going to be one really short scribe. Today was just a work period which means we got lots of homework to do. The only main important thing of this scribe is the work pages we need to have done, and also the other things for Mr. B to collect on monday.

Things that need to be done:
-The Wrap It Up(the hand-out only) you're not supposed to number 3 on that.
-Test(Hand-Out)..very simple except for the last question..that confused me.
-And you have a choice of either doing the Test or Review in the book.

The Things Collected on Monday:
-All the Mathlinks(Hand-Outs)
-Wrap it Up(Hand-outs) so you have to actually do this...
-Introduction...though I can't seem to find mine..
-The two foldables(the one with lots of flaps on it and the three-point-approach.

And the next scribe is...Francis A. MUAHAHAHA...haaah..yeah.

Negative Exponent Law Scribe Post for January 11, 2010

Monday, January 11, 2010
Hello everyone! Nicky here yet again to tell you about our Math class today. First of all, we went over our homework with Mr. B. Then, (once all questions were answered) Mr. B "informed" us that we would be starting chapter 3.4. He also taught us about another of the Exponent Laws. This one is entitled, the "Negative Exponent Law".

Now, just what is the Negative Exponent Law? Defined scientifically (or mathematically I suppose) it is: a nonzero base raised to a negative exponent is equal to the reciprocal of the base to the positive exponent.

Quite a mouthful, eh? Well, don't you worry, never fear, Robin Hood will soon be here... Ahem... Until he does I'll just continue on with the class, shall I?

Hm... Now where was I... Ah yes! Mr B's demonstration of this law... Well, first, I think I'll give a simpler definition considering the one above can be quite confusing... Relatively speaking, the Negative Exponent Law states that when you have a base that isn't zero and you're raising it to a negative exponent, it is equal to the reciprocal of the fraction that you get. (Here's a picture to make it much simpler).Alright. This concludes the lesson on Grade 10/11 stuff... Yeah... We're learning advanced stuff because we're "The Class"... Or, Mr B just wants us to... I amen't sure... Anyway, Robin Hood should be coming right about now to deliver his- Ah! Here he is (took him long enough)!Thank you, "Robin" for your definition of the Negative Exponent Law. I was kind of hoping you'd say something more along the lines of it dealing with patterns and fractions as I demonstrated above but, oh well. Beggars can't be choosers, until Robin Hood gives them money! Harhar... I made a funny (and a rhyme)!

*drumroll* And now, the moment you've all been waiting for, HOMEWORK! *trumpet fanfare*

(The following is due on Wednesday)

Textbook Pgs. 118-119 (All questions)

Workbook Chapter 3.4

Mathlink Chapter 3.4 (Separate Sheet, not in Textbook)

Extra Practice Chapter 3.4

This now concludes our broadcast day. It will resume tomorrow evening with your new "anchor" Mark.

Math Game: Precisely Fifty

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Precisely Fifty

1) Each Player draws 5 cards at the outset

2) You’re not allowed to discard, but draw after your turn is finished.

3) The object is to reach the number 50, not under, not over.
4) You can use a combination of two out of the four operations each turn. If you can use two operations between every card in your hand to reach 50, call "50" and explain. If your 50 is not “legit” you get disqualified
5) You can ask the opponents for a certain card, once every 5 turns.
Card Value
Ace is 1, or 10, your choice.
Cards 2-10 are their numerical value.
J, Q, and K are 10s.
Say you have a 2, 5 and 5. You can multiply 2 by 5 to get 10. Then you multiply that by 5 to get 50.
Say you have 1, 6, 8, 4, and 2. You can add those 3 of them together. With those numbers you can add 4, 6 and 8 to get 18.
Say you have a number higher than 50 while multiplying, you can subtract numbers from a higher number to get closer to 50.
Say you have 60; you can divide it by a number to get back in the safe zone.
Alternate Rules
1) Draw a card before your turn starts.
2) Squares and Square Roots are now playable.
3) You can’t divide.

The Spiral Rational Game

The Spiral Rational Board Game Rules.

RED SPACES - Go back on space
BLUE SPACES - Pick up a card
GREEN SPACES - Go forward one space

- When you land on a blue space, someone (it could be anyone of the players) picks up a card and reads it to you, then you have to answer. If you got it wrong, you miss a turn, and if you got it correct, you are safe until your next turn.

How to start
- To start a game, you have to choose which colour cone you want to be. (UP TO 4 PLAYERS). To choose who goes first, each person gets to roll the die, whoever gets the highest gets to go first and the second person is the person who got the second highest and so on. The winner is the person who has reached to the finish line before everyone else.

Order of Operatons

Friday, January 8, 2010
Hi "The Class" sorry my post was so late, by the way Mr. B asked me to scribe about BEDMAS or Order of Operations. BEDMAS stands for:







In order to solve a question with multiple operations (add/subtract, multiply/divide) there is an order to follow often referred to as 'BEDMAS'
BEDMAS is an acronym that stands for;
B-bracketsE-exponentsDM-multiply or divide (left to right)AS-add subtract (left to right).

This is to help students remember what order to do the work in.


  • As you can see above we started with brackets.
  • then we did the exponents.
  • Followed by multiplication or division
  • then end up adding or subtracting

I found a website where it explains all of it better than I am:

Yesterday Mr.B also assigned us some homework for the weekend:

  • Check your understanding
  • Practise(Odd Numbers)
  • Extend:17, 18 or 19, 20
  • Mathlink 3.3
  • Extra practise
  • work book 3.3
  • apply
  • self evalutaion

Please Comment For Any Mistakes. For the next Scribe I Choose..... Nicky!

Scribe Post for January 7, 2010

Thursday, January 7, 2010
Hello 9-05 ! So today we started Chapter 3.2: Exponent Laws. Mr. Backe helped us with some stuff we didn't understand in our homework yesterday:
  • Read page 99 to 104
  • Answer Explore Operations on powers, Reflect and Check, Check Your Understanding- page 105, and all Show You Knows-page 101, 102, 103 and 104.

In class, we wrote notes in our foldables.

We wrote notes in the middle where it says Exponent Laws and Key Words.


The Product Law:
When multiplying powers of the same base, simply add the exponents to find the product

We also had to put not examples, exponents with different bases:


The Quotient Law:
When dividing powers of the same base, simply subtract the exponent to find the quotient.

We also had to put not examples, exponents with different bases:


The Power of a Power Law:
When raising a power by a power, simply multiply the exponents to find the new power.

WHY? it's because this question means to multiply 5 x 5 3 more times.


Power of a Product Law:
When a product is raised to an exponent, you can rewrite each number in the product with the same exponent.


Power of the Quotient Law:
When a quotient is raised to an exponent, you can rewrite each number in the quotient with the same exponent.


The Zero Exponent Law:
When the exponent of a power is 0. The value of the power is 1 if the base is not equal to 0.

WHY? It is 1 and a positive even though the base is a negative because it fits the pattern. Watch...

See what's happening? This reminds me of the rule about multiplying and dividing integers:

*When multiplying or dividing variables, if there's an even amount of positive or negative numbers the answer will be a positive.

*When multiplying or dividing variables, if there's an odd amount of positive or negative numbers the answer will be a negative.

  • Practise, Apply and Extend - Odd or Even numbers.
  • 3.2 Extra Practice
  • 3.2 Workbook
  • Fill in definitions and examples for 3 point approach and foldable so you're caught up with everything
  • Self Assessment for 3.1 and 3.2 since we're done both
  • also try to figure out definition of Exponent Law of 1, Negative Exponent Law, Base of 1 Law if you have time (:

Extra Info you guys may need in case it pops up in the homework:
Negative Exponents: I think it's the same as Negative Exponent Law..I'm not sure.

If a positive exponent means how many times you multiply the base by itself, a negative exponent means how many times you divide the base by itself.

Please comment and tell me what you think, point out my errors and things I could improve on (:

Scribe Post For January 6, 2010

Wednesday, January 6, 2010
Hello everyone! Oh my gosh, this is my first scribe for this year. Sorry again for not being able to comment on everyone's work, but I promise I will from now on!

So here's what we did in today's class:
1. We went over some of yesterday's homework.
2. Mr.B assigned some more homework.
3. The rest of the class was work period.

I was a little late for class today, so I missed when you guy's went over some of yesterday's homework. I'm so sorry );
Now I can't go over them...
But thanks to Tracey, Liem and Melissa for trying to help (;

Here's our homework:
(This is all the homework since our first day back. Just double check if you're finished everything.)

January 4, 2010
- finish "Self Assessment" (only 3.1 before)
- finish setting up your "Big Foldable" (labelled, stapled)
- finish setting up your "3 Point Approach Foldable" (labelled)
- read pg. 88-96
- "Check Your Understanding" in our Math Links Textbook (Pg. 96)
- "Get Ready" in our Math Links Workbook (Pg. 28-29)
- "Chapter 3 Math Link Introduction" in our handouts (everything but #6)
- "Using Exponents to Describe Numbers" in our Math Links Workbook (Pg. 30-31)
- Journal

January 5, 2010
- finish your "3 Point Approach Foldable" (definitions, examples)
- Math Links Homework in Textbooks (Pg. 97-98)
-- Practice (#9, #11, #13)
-- Apply (#15, #16, #17, #18, #19, #21)
-- Extend (#22, #23)
-- Math Link
- "Extra Practice" in our hand outs
- Journal

January 6, 2010
- Math Links Homework in Textbooks (Pg. 99-105)
-- read pg. 99-105
-- "Explore Operations on Powers" (Pg. 99)
-- "Reflect and Check" (Pg. 100)
-- "Show You Know's" (Pg. 101-104)
-- "Check Your Understanding" (Pg. 105)
- work on "Big Foldable"
-- repeated multiplication, standard form, exponential form
-- definitions, rules, examples
-- use "Key Words" in our Math Links Textbook (Pg. 105)
- Journal
- do your "Game Post"

Here are some examples from our homework:

Explore Operations on Powers Pg. 99 Textbook
1. The environmental club learns that the area of the plot of land is 64m^2.

a) What are the possible whole dimensions of the rectangular plot of land?
Note: a square IS a rectangle
1mx64m 2mx32m 4mx16m 8mx8m

b) What is 64 expressed as a base of 2?

c) Show how you can express each of the dimensions in part a) using bases of 2.
2^0x2^6 2^1x2^5 2^2x2^4 2^3x2^3
Reflect and Check Pg. 100 Textbook
a) Explain how you can write a product of powers as a single power. One way is to rewrite the multiplication statement in repeated multiplication, and the number of like factors will be the new exponent for the base.

b) Explain how you can write a quotient of powers as a single power. One way is to just see if the bases are the same. If they are, all you need to do is subtract the exponents. The difference is the new exponent for the base.

Show You Know Pg. 104 Textbook
a) (-5)^0 = 1
b) -5^0 = 1
c) -(5)^0 = 1
d) 5^0 = 1

Check Your Understanding Pg. 105 Textbook
1. Explain why (4^2)^5 = 4^10
Since brackets mean "multiply," 5x2=10 so therefore, they're equal.

You guys, remember the booklets Mr.B handed out before the break? The mental math ones? Well, I know some of you are either finished or still working on them, but I do know that some of us haven't even started them yet. I know that Mr.B isn't going to collect them anytime soon, but I think we should still do them. It's just for practice. We will be needing mental math skills in the future, so I guess it's just your choice. BUT... it will make MR.B HAPPY, if we DO do them ;D
Thanks for reading my scribe, please leave a comment, and sorry for the lateness!
I'll try my best to improve my speed!
For the next scribe, I pick........

Math Game-Teleporter Galaxy

Teleporter Galaxy

Instructions and Rules of Teleporter Galaxy:

1) 2 or 4 players can play this game. If 4 players are playing, split into two teams.
2) First player rolls the dice and goes forward.
3) Look at the colour you landed on and take a card from the same colour deck.
4) Answer the question without your teammate's help. You're allowed to use a calculator or do it on paper.
5) If you got it right, move one step forward. If not, stay.

6) Take turns doing this.
7) If you land on BONUS (the black triangle) take a card from the black deck. First team to answer correctly gets to switch spots with opposing team if the opposing team is ahead. If they aren't, move 3 spaces up.

8) If your teammate finishes first, they will be allowed to help you on the question.
9) First team to have both players around the star wins.


Tuesday, January 5, 2010
First you choose one of the many pennies taped to the board to be your game piece. Limited players only. Currently, there are only 4 players allowed to play at a time. We are trying to expand the game board so many others can perform at the same times.

Okay, here are the actual rules to this game.
1. Move on square
2. Roll the dice
3. You do the operation that is written on the square with the 2 numbers rolled (you can put them in any order)
4. If not answered correctly, you move back once, and if answered right you stay!

(Because this game is pretty easy to follow if you know what I mean)

Back N' 4th


1) You spin the spinner and who ever gets the highest number goes first.

2) The opposite person of who is going first then picks a card for the person and reads out the question. If they get it right they spin the spinner and what ever they get is the number of spaces they move. If they get the question wrong they have to spin the spinner and the number they get is the number of spaces they move backward. Note: The spinner only is up to #4.

3) You will have 2 different questions. Mental Math and Long Answer questions. The mental math questions must be in your head and the Long Answer questions are done on a pad. There is a timer and you will be timed. One minute for the Mental Math Questions and three minutes for the Long Answer questions. Note: The pad and pencils will be provided.

4) No peaking at the question’s answer, THAT’S CHEATING!

5) Who ever gets to the end first wins.

Scribe Post for January 5, 2010

Hello 9-05! Today in class we went over our Check Your Understanding. Some people had a hard time to understand the difference between -2^4 and (-2)^4.

When the base is put in a bracket, everything in the bracket will be repeated depending on the exponent.
Remember this old saying? Well now it comes in handy.
When there is an even amount of negatives, the product is positive. When there is an odd amount of negatives, the product is negative.

When the base has no brackets, then you don't count the negative into the base.


If my explanation wasn't clear enough go to Mr. Backe for help because I can't make it any more clearer than that. (Sorry)

Rational Fractional Questionary

Monday, January 4, 2010
Each person has 1 minute and 30 seconds to answer as many questions as they can from the 10 questions given to them. There are 10 questions per person. It does not matter who goes first.
(Your opponent gets the answer key for your deck of 10 cards, which are colour coated.)

Step 1: Answer the trivia question
-You only get 3 tries.
-You get 2 points for answering the question correctly.
-If you are unable to answer the question, solve the equation (bottom corner).

Step 2: Math question
-You only get 2 tries to answer this question.
-You get 1 point if you answer it correctly.
-If you are unable to answer, you get no points.

After each person is finished answering as many questions as they can in 1 minute and 30 seconds, whoever has the most points at the end wins!

Rational Racers
This is a game for 2 or more players.
*Take out all Jokers, Kings, Queens, and Jacks from the deck of cards.

1) Each player must pick up two playing cards.
2) Each player must make the greatest fraction possible using their two cards
3) The player with the greatest fraction flips a coin (player x)
4) Heads = positive Tails = negative
5) Player X then rolls the dice
6) Player X then goes forward or backwards on the game board, depending on if the number is positive or negative.
7) If you land on a tile with a number on it. Go backwards or forwards depending on the number’s value.
8) Repeat from step 1, until someone reaches the end. (Tile number 64)

Fortune Seeker

Rules/ Instructions:

1) First player spins the spinner.

2) If the spinner lands on an amount of money, the player then receives a card, which contains the same amount.
3) The player then tries to answer the question.

4) If the player gets it right, a token (pennies/dimes) is put on the board, on the same amount answered.

5) Then, it’s the other player’s turn, the cycle then continues.

6) If a player got his/her’s tokens 5 across, 5 down, or 5 diagonally, that player wins that set.

7) Some exceptions: if a player spins the spinner, and lands on “bankrupt” the player lose the highest amount they answered on the board. Then, the other player gets a bonus spot on the board.

8) If a player lands on “lose a turn” the player lost his/her turn, then it’s the next player’s turn.

9) When the player lands on the same amounts twice (on two spins), it’s the other player’s turn. When the board is filled, the person who has the most money wins.

10) When the board is filled, the person who has the most money wins.

Pictures of the game:

Spin A Win - Shaneille and Kristin

Spin A Win

Object:Get to the end of the board ( number 20) to win
Playing the Game:
1. Spin the spinner-Each number is divided into 2 sections. The coloured section is positive( remember your number)
2.Spin again -the non-coloured spaces are negative
