Students participated in some excellent activities promoting good self-esteem within the class and had some really positive things to say about each other. In math the grade 7's are working on subtracting integers which students sometimes find difficult. Remember the two different tricks involving "adding the opposite" or "using a number line". The grade 6's have been practicing some mental math strategies and will soon start on muliplying and dividing large numbers.
