All students are continuing to develop their math skills using percents. When you think about it, our life is often dealing with this concept. Walk into any shop and you will see sale signs with percents off, borrow money and you deal with percents, go to a restaurant and think about taxes and tips. Becoming comfortable with percents is one of the most important skills students can have as they move into their teen years and beyond.
Math - Grade 7s - no assigned work but practise your estimating with percents skills. If you are shopping or out for food at a restaurant where you are being served - calculate the tip for your parents or other family members - Show off those skills!

Art - complete your draft of the tile pattern - cannot move forward tomorrow without it being done
Bring the following supplies to school tomorrow - Friday
- tiles if you are bringing some of your own
- plastic container like a yogurt one to put your broken tiles into (this only applies to those who are bringing in their own tiles as this will be your storage spot)
- hammer if you have one (we only need about 10 for the entire class)
- old towel or old t-shirt you can donate as they will be thrown out once used (again, about 10 would be good for the class)
Comment: What did you learn about roles of men and women in Canadian society? How are we similar and how are we different from our ancestors from Mesopotamia? Do you think that the roles will continue to evolve as they have already done? How might they change?
