These notes were given with the PowerPoint: Volume of Spheres Notes-1wcnwxq

This video explains how to do it!

How will I be assessed:

Math 8: Finish Volume of Spheres here: Volume of a Sphere M8-1zyx0xl

Adv M8: Finish Volume of Spheres here (changed directions to volume, not surface area): Volume of a Sphere Adv M8-2n6wd36

## Tuesday 10/9:

Took PSAT. No hw.

## Wednesday 10/10:

Learning Target: I can find the volume of a hemisphere.

We discovered how to find the volume of a hemisphere. Since we are working with half of a sphere, all we have to do is find the volume of a whole sphere and divide by two.

This student shows how it’s done!:

How will I be assessed:

Math 8: Finish “Volume of Sphere & Hemisphere” here:         Choose 8 from the back.

Adv M8: Finish “Volume of Sphere & Hemisphere” here:         Choose 8 from the back.

## Thursday 10/11:

Learning Target: I can find the volume of hemispheres

We continued with hemispheres by completing the practice sheet “Volume of Sphere & Hemisphere” from yesterday for extra credit. Students also completed a Ticket Out of the Door before leaving.

How will I be assessed: No homework.

## Friday 10/12:

Learning Target: I can find the volume of composite solids.

Volume of composite solids containing spheres, cones and cylinders were found. CTLS answers were uploaded from Unit 2.

This video demonstrates what is needed to find composite volume:

How will I be assessed:  Complete the following Volume of Composite Solid assignment, if you did not turn in before the end of class today: Volume-of-Composite-Solids-2019-1t03yly& Volume of Cylinder Cone Sphere Real World -z2zbaq

### Week of October 1, 2018

October1

October is now here! This means Quarter is coming to a close. We have much to do and have opportunities to increase grades. Did you do your project? Although it is optional, your grade can significantly increase. The project is due October 5th and will count as a test grade.

## Monday 10/1:

Learning Target: I can find the volume of a cylinder.

We did a small review of the Pythagorean Theorem. Afterwards volume of cylinders was covered.

The following PowerPoint was discussed: Volume of Cylinder PP 2019-23u349o

The following notes assisted the PowerPoint: Volume of Cylinder Notes PP 2019-1g8k9jq

This video enhances what we learned. Remember, multiplication is commutative (order in which you multiply doesn’t matter):

How will I be assessed: Finish Volume – Cylinder practice sheet here:

Projects are do Friday!

## Tuesday 10/2:

Learning Target: I can find the volume of a cone.

Students discovered for themselves the formula for finding the volume of a cone.

This PowerPoint may help: Volume of Cones PP 2019-2azhvmw

Guided notes for the PowerPoint are here: Volume of Cones Guided Notes 2019-2h0caxf

The following video demonstrates this:

How will I be assessed: Projects are due Friday!

Math 8: Finish Volume of a Cone practice sheet here: Volume of a Cone M8 2019-22v5bc6

Adv M8: Finish Volume of a Cone practice sheet here: Volume of Cones Adv M8 2019-2894txb

## Wednesday 10/3:

Learning Target: I can find missing lengths of cones and cylinders when given the volume.

Students discovered how to work backwards to find either the height or radius of cones and cylinders when volume is given.

How will I be assessed: Finish Cylinders and Cones-2keyh2k. This study guide: Unit 3 Study Guide 2019-2njn4bc was distributed for the test on Friday.

## Thursday 10/4:

Learning Target: I can find the missing side of a right triangle.

Quizzes were returned/corrected and the study guide was fully reviewed in class. Students had their choice as to how they wanted to prepare for tomorrow’s test.

How will I be assessed: No homework. Study for the Pythagorean Unit Test. Also, projects are due tomorrow.

## Friday 10/5:

Learning Target: I can show mastery of the Pythagorean Theorem by taking the Unit 3 test.

The Unit 3 Pythagorean Theorem Test was taken. Also, optional projects were due and collected today.

How will I be assessed: No homework. The last summative assessment was taken for the quarter, Unit 3 Test.

### Week of September 17, 2018

September17

We’ve really come a long way with the Pythagorean Theorem! The uses are endless and very practical if you give it a chance. This week we will continue with the theorem, take the Cobb County CTLS test for Unit 2 on Tuesday/Wednesday, and review Thursday/Friday before our much needed break!

Don’t forget, there is an optional Pythagorean Anchor Project Due October 5th. The rubric is here: Pythagorean Theorem Anchor Rubric-25k8he6

Project examples;

Monday 9/17:

Learning Target: I can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find missing sides of right triangles.

We viewed a video tutorial on why the Pythagorean Theorem works and the many real world situations as to why it is useful

How will I be assessed: Finish Using the Pythagorean Theorem-15etzfrWarm-ups Pythag-y53pqt

## Tuesday 9/18:

Learning Target: I can show master of Unit 2 material through the CTLS test.

We took the Cobb County CTLS Test for Unit 2 today. We’ll continue tomorrow. No homework.

## Wednesday 9/19:

Learning Target: I can show master of Unit 2 material through the CTLS test.

Students continued working on the Cobb County CTLS Test for Unit 2 today.

How will I be assessed: Complete the handout that was given in class today.

## Thursday 9/20:

Learning Target: I can find the missing side lengths in a right triangle by using the Pythagorean Theorem.

We completed the review handout for Friday’s quiz in class which counted as a class grade.

pythagorean_theorem_worksheet-1jvsbzf

How will I be assessed:  No homework. Students received a 100% daily grade by completing the review handout in class.
