Algebra Tutorials A brief explanationEven people who know how to deal with fractions actually prefer not to. Equations and inequalities are great when it comes to fractions because there is a way to get rid of them. This tutorial shows you how. Not only is it useful now, it is actually mandatory when you get to standard form linear equations. Eliminating FractionsThe steps for eliminating fractions are: Okay, so step 2 makes no sense yet. Step-by-Step ExamplesEXAMPLE: What did we just do? EXAMPLE: Sometimes it's confusing if we're not working with like things. EXAMPLE:TIPThe most common mistake in this process is when students only multiply the left side of the equation by the common denominator. ONLINE PRACTICENone.

Teaching and Assessment Tools - Province of British Columbia Use these field-developed and tested teaching and assessment materials to measure children's learning and development in the Kindergarten program. Oral Language Oral language provides the foundation for all literacy development. Talking about experiences and ideas builds the concepts used later in reading, writing, and numeracy. Oral Language Assessment Continuum (PDF) Sample Assessment Profiles Social Responsibility Learning is an interactive process for young children, and the development of social responsibility goes hand-in-hand with oral language development. Social Responsibility Assessment Continuum (PDF) Reading and Viewing Kindergarten children develop as early readers through many experiences with different forms of text in a print-rich environment. Sample Assessment Profiles Writing and Representing As young learners begin to comprehend printed material, they express their ideas in a variety of forms that often combine drawing, abstract symbols and oral explanation.

Thetis Island History | The Gulf Islands Guide At the outbreak of W.W.I, the population of this lush island was still only seventy! It’s been slowly growing ever since and a proposed new development could see the population top 400. Settlers from Britain arrived here in the 1870’s and produced farm crops for the Vancouver Island market. William Curran was one of the early settlers. The Burchells from England and the Hunters from the Shetland Islands arrived shortly after and between the two families they owned most of this tiny island. The British navy gave its name to both Thetis and nearby Kuper islands. Kuper has evolved as a First Nations Reserve, accessible by the same ferry from Chemainus that drops off Thetis passengers.
