I began the class today by telling the students that yesterday’s lesson was the last new lesson for the course.  I reminded the students to keep note of the upcoming dates for various assessments (see above).  I told the students that I would do a summary/review of chapter 8 with them today and tomorrow to help them study of the upcoming thinking assignment (June 9) and unit test (June 14) for unit 7 (chapter 8 of the textbook).  I gave the students a handout titled “MCV4U – Summary of Chapter 8 Lines & Planes”.  I first went over the summary of the unit on the digital projector and then told the students I would give them a chance to do each of the examples on their own first and then we would take it up as a class.  The students worked right through to the end of the period but we did not get to take up the questions.  I went around and helped students and told them I would post the answers (see below).  I will also take up the answers at the start of tomorrow’s class.  A number of students will be away tomorrow for the flag football game so I reminded those students that will be away to check the blog.  I posted review questions for them to help them study for the thinking assignment and unit test (see below).

Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.

MCV4U – Summary of Chapter 8 Lines & Planes (filled-in) (We did not have a chance to take these up in class because the students were still working on the questions.  I just went around and helped students during this period.  I told the students I would post the answers and would take these up at the start of tomorrow’s class.)
