The Flipped Classroom

Week 5: Science & Math (November 17th - 21st)

SCIENCE ROCKS: Unit 3- Biomes of the World

Lesson 1: What are Biomes?/ Tropical Rainforests


Biomes are regions of the world with similar climate (weather, temperature) animals and plants. The Earth has many different environments, varying in temperature, moisture, light, and many other factors. Each of these habitats has distinct life forms living in it, forming complex communities of interdependent organisms. A complex community of plants and animals in a region and a climate is called a biome.


Exercise A: Answer the following questions by highlighting the information in your books on pages 99- 103.


1. What determines what kind of biome can exist in a particular region?

2. What caused the destruction of biomes over the past several years?

3. Where are tropical rain forests found?

4. List and explain the four layers of the rain forest.

5. State two adaptations made by trees in the rain forest.

6. In which layer of the rain forest do most animals live?

7. Explain why rain forests are important?

8. How are rain forests beneficial to person who are sick?

9. On page 100, list ten animals that you see in the video.

10.Research- Which biome would The Bahamas fall under?

11. In no less that two paragraphs, answer the THINK question on page 103.

MATH MATTERS: Unit 3- Factoring

Lesson 1: Least Common Multiple pg 45- 46


RECAP: Review the definition of the term multiple.


The least common multiple is the smallest multiple that is shared by two or more numbers.


The easiest way to find the LCM of two or more numbers is to:


1. Identify the multiples of the given number.

2. Circle the smallest number that is common among the two groups.

Lesson 2: Review of prime Factors 47- 48 Page 326 will be graded


As you prepare for your unit test, review the following concepts:


1. Prime Numbers

2. Division by Primes ( Factor Ladder)

3. Finding Prime Factors ( Factor Tree)

4. Greatest Common Factors

5. Least Common Multiple

6. Rules of Divisibility




Lesson 3: Exponents pg 49-50


A power tells you to multiply a number by itself. Another name for a power is an exponent. The value of the power shows you how many sets of the number to multiply. This way of writing numbers is called index notation.

Lesson 4: Unit Test


It's time to put everything you learned down on paper. Review the following in preparation for your test on Thursday 20th November.


What to Study

1. Finding Factors

2. Greatest Common Factor

3. Least Common Multiple

4. Exponents

5. Prime & Composite Numbers

6. Rules of Divisibility




Lesson 5: Introduction to Fractions pg 51-52


Home Work pg 328- 329 (graded) Due Monday 24th November


A fraction is apart of a whole.

The numerator is the top number of a fraction. It tells how many parts are used.

The denominator is the bottom number. It tell how many parts there are altogether.

A mixed number has a whole number and a fraction.
