OPTIONAL PRACTICE: WORKSHEETS
Below are all the important worksheets arranged by topic. We attempted them all in class. If I suggested you to review any or some of these topics, you should complete them before attempting the Investigations. To save on paper, please avoid printing the entire document. It may be better to view it online or print only specific pages if required.
OPTIONAL PRACTICE: SCRATCH, DESMOS
Some of you wanted to explore programming using Scratch to develop a Game or a Geometry Activity. Go to https://scratch.mit.edu/ for downloading the tool and for anything else you may need (Help Guide, Projects shared by Community).
Some of you who want to explore Algebra further should go to https://www.desmos.com/. Go ahead and create some cool art with Algebra!
For those of you who cannot wait to do more Algebra, here are three additional investigations that you can do. Introduction to Quadratic Relationships. Quadratic Expressions. And Quadratic Patterns of Change. You also get to use Desmos during these investigations!

Happy Holidays to you all. Do write to me at email@example.com for any queries or support.
Here is the booklet you have already started using. Download
Before you start on the booklet you need your own force meter (spring balance is a type of a force meter). You DO NOT need to use standard weights if you don't have them. Use coins or any other object that you think would be useful. Recall our activity to compare the weights of two stones. In fact, do not need to build the EXACT same force meter, you can use this video (go to video) as a start and use your creativity and the trash around you to make your own meter. The second video (go to video) is an example of this type.
Ensure that you have some elder around when you need to use tools that can cause injuries.
You don't want to spoil your holidays with stupid injury, don't you?
