Math And E.L.A exams

In we are starting to study for exams. First we did a schonal test out of 100. After you corrected it, you had to ffigure out what your mark was. Mr.Routledge told us where we were before and we are now. Most people went up. Also 20 of those 100 words are going to be one the test.

In math we started studying for exams. The first thing we did was mental math. You had to number your paper 1-10 and answer questions. We also did the no calculators part, witch might take some people quite a long time. It has questions like 432.89 x 523.80. Then we started some of the third part that you can use calculators in.

In math we are reviewing for an exam. One of the things we learned about was angles. An acute angle is less than 90 degrees, an obtuse angle is 90 degrees to 180 degrees. a right angle is exactly 90 degrees and a reflex angle is 180 to 360 degrees.


In math class we have been going over review for exams coming up soon. In one of the review sheets there was a question that said we were supposed to put some numbers in scientific notation. This is how you do scientific notation.

Ex. 22,149
4 3 2 1
2 x 10 + 2 x 10 + 1 x 10 + 4 x 10 + 9

All you do is get your biggest number (in value) and multiply it by ten to the power of how ever many numbers are left in your original number (22,149)
