### Marco's Pay it Forward

Part 1:
What is "Pay it Forward"?
Pay it Forward is an act of kindness for people who don't expect it and expect nothing in return. Pay it Forward starts with you and the person you ask passes the kindness that you did on to somebody else, and that process goes on, and on, and on. It shows how little things can be something big for other people in ways you can't imagine. It can spread from a small area to a larger area and make change in people's lives.

Part 2
:
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?

My pay it forward act of kindness was shoveling people's walkways, especially the older people's walkways, ones that cannot do it themselves.

Why did you choose this activity?
I chose this activity because I knew it will help the people who cant shovel their own walkways or sidewalks because I see old men/women having difficulty everyday in my street. It's really heartbreaking.

Who did you help?
I helped the people who let me shovel their walkways. I asked the older people first because they were for me more important..

What did you do?
What I did was shovel my whole street. The next thing I did was ask my neighbors if can shovel their walkways and if they said yes, I quickly shoveled their stairs and walkway. Some of them tried paying me, but I said no because I wanted to look like a really nice boy to my neighbors.

When did you do you act of kindness?
I did this on November 27, 2012 when it there was a lot of snow in my street. So I thought of my neighbors and Payed it Forward.

Part 3:

How did your act of kindness go?
My act of kindness went great! It was very tiring and exhausting, but it made me happy, thinking of how great full my neighbors were. Them telling me that I'm the nicest boy they've seen made my whole year.

What Happened?
Not much happened during my act of kindness. Everything went well until my back started hurting. It was a minor pain so I kept going.

How did you feel?
I felt proud of myself being known as a nice boy in my street. I have made a lot of people happy that day.

How did the person or people react?
They were really surprised! They never expected someone offering them to shovel their walkways. Seeing the smile on people's faces made my year! Hurting my back and almost freezing to death was worth it!

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
Yes I did. I that I did something to make a little change in your life. And for me, a little change is enough. So I told them to do the same for other people. It's amazing how doing something little can make people really happy.

How did they react to your request?
I told them to do the same for other people. Change their lives, make them happy, and feel good about yourself. There are people out there that are struggling and in need of help. They were really pleased with my request. They said that they'll try to do their best to make change in people's lives.

Part 4:
Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
It's very important because it can change people's lives. Ones that can actually change, ones that are willing to change. If everybody does this, I bet there will be less crime in this world, less people being killed/murdered, and less people doing bad things.

I'm pretty sure it did because I have put a smile on people's faces. People who maybe only smiled once in a while probably became happier than they are now. It's amazing how little things can be big for some people. I would like to do this again if I had another chance.

### Kyle's Pay It Forward

Part 1
What is "Pay it forward"?
Pay it forward" is the concept of asking the beneficiary of a good deed to repay it to others instead of to the original benefactor. It is helping others and not expecting anything that is given back to them but they expect it to pass it on to 3 other people that will also pay it forward and costing a whole chain reaction of good kindness to other people.

Part 2
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
For my Pay It Forward, I shoveled snow on 4 houses that the owners cant do themselves and told them to Pay it Forward

Why did you choose this activity?
I chose this activity because i think that it is one of the helpful things that a young person like us can do for the older people who are in pain and need help with a couple of things.

Who did you help?
I helped my neighbour's that are old and cannot shovel their house by themselves.  I only got one name out of all the people that I got and her name was Maria
What did you do?
Me and my dad shoveled 4 of the houses that the owner cant do themselves because of age
When did you do you act of kindness?
I did this act of kindness on December 15th

Part 3
How did your act of kindness go?
My act of kindness went well, some elders were scared but felt a little comfortable with us after doing the favor of paying it forward.
What Happened?
Some of the elders watched us and laughed at us as i sometimes would slip.  Some people tried to pay us but we just gave the money back and say to pay it forward to someone else.
How did you feel?
I felt like good because it was my first time doing good deeds to other people that need help.  It felt like i kind of had a relief of me thinking i was always a bad kid but after this. I felt that I wasn't just that.
How did the person or people react?
Some of the people ask if i was doing this for school or am i doing this because i want to.  They were surprised that they saw me shovel and not get payed.
Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
I told 2 out of the 4 houses i have been on to pay it forward because they were asking what it was for and the other 2 closed the door on us and never opened again.
How did they react to your request?
Some of them felt scared but also some of them was really happy to see us shovel it

Part 4
Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
The idea of pay it forward is really important because it can cost a whole chain reaction of people doing it and it may change some of the peoples life and show them to pay it forward.
My act made a difference to some of the houses i have visited to because they put more trust to their neighbours and also one of them came to my house and thanked me and said they payed it forward

### Jaizen's Proportion Post

Part 1)
Rate: Compares two quantities measured in different units.
Example:

Ratio: The quantitative relation between two amounts showing the number of times one walue contained within the other
Example:

﻿
Blue car's to Red car
2:1

Proportion: A part, shape, or number considerd in comparative relation in a whole
Example:

Part 2)

• 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h.

• 72 Kilometers/Hours

• Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns. Emma earned \$75 last week. How much money did Emma save last week?

• Part 3)

What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
3/4 = 12/16 or 4/9 = 16/32

3 These are the three ways for  4
Here is all 3 of the diagrams:

Cross method:

Horizontal method:
Baseball method:

Part 4)

http://youtu.be/P_aQPxr2G_4

Part 5)

• Does this seem fair?
• No because he was homeless and he needed the money to survive and he also told the turth.

• With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above. Does it seem just and fair?
• No it is not fair, because Roy stole little money and Paul stole 3 billion dollars and was sent in prison .

• Why have you made this choice?
•   Because Pual stole 3 billion dollar and was sent in prison for 40 years and Roy stole 100 dollars and was sent to jail for 15 years.

• What would you have done if you were the judge
• I would give Paul R. Allen a longer time in prison and give Roy Bown a sorter time and put him in jail.

### Gabbey's Integers Scribepost

I think it's wrong, because if you multiply (-5) with a negative integer, you'll get a positive product. Whenever you multiply a negative integer with another, you'll get a positive product, and if you multiply a negative with a positive, you'll get a negative product.

A- (+2) x (+4) = (+8)                B - (+3) x (-5) = (-15)

A)

B)

A) (+10) x (+4) = (+40)   B) (+6) x (-5) = (-30)     C) (-7) x (+5) = (-35)       D) (-8) x (-4) = (+32)

### 8.2 Page 296 Questions 1, 3, 5 and 7

#### 1.) Darcy modeled (+7) x (+3)  on a number line by drawing seven arrows. Ishnan modeled (+7) x (+3) on a number line by drawing only three arrows. Explain Ishnan's thinking.

Darcy did 7 groups of 3 while Ishnan did 3 groups of 7. It still works because the product is the same and Ishnan just "switched" the two numbers.

#### 5.) What multiplication statement does each diagram represent?

a.) 2 x (-6) = -12
2 groups of negative 6 equals negative 12

b.) 4 x 4 = 16
4 groups of  4 equals 16

#### 7.) Determine each product.

a.) (+4) x (-7) = -28
4 groups of -7

b.) (+2) x (+9) = 18
2 groups of 9

### John's Proportion Post

Part 1

Ratioscomparison of two quantities.
Example:
Rate- compares two quantities measured in different units.
Example - 1.69 per 100g or 1.69/100g   is a rate for purchasing bulk food
- 72 beats/min is a "heart rate"

Example
John runs 200 meters in 30 seconds

Proportion- is two equivalents -fractions
-ratios
-rates

Part 2

5 hours to travel 150 kilometres is about 30 km/h.

Part 3

Part 5

1) Does this seem fair?
No of course it's not. Even though robbing is illegal. I think the time he's given is way to much, 15 years over 100\$ is ridiculous!
2) With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above. Does this seem fair?
No but yes at the same time. That was his choice to rob the bank, but he only took 100\$ and confessed the day after, He was desprate. Though robbing is illegal he shouldn't of gotten 15 years for 100\$.
3) Why have you made this choice?
I have made this choice because..... It is really not fair! (for the homeless man). The homeless man did not need to stay in jail for 15 years for stealing \$100 from the bank. It's really unfair having to see a homeless man be in jail for 15 years for stealing \$100 (which is still bad), and seeing a CEO who stole 3 billion dollars and staying in jail for only 40 months (3 years and 4 months). The homeless man clearly had a good reason to tell the teller why he was stealing, then the next day he volunteered/confessed himself to the police, he even said that he wasn't raised the way to steal.
4) What would you have done if you were the judge?
If I was the judge I would've gave him maybe 5 months, because he was in need and was desprate. And because he confessed the day after. For the man who stole 3 billion dollars only getting 3 years, i would've gave HIM the 15 years. That idiot deserves it.

PART 6

1) First of all, you have to measure the length and width of the traffic box. I took a ruler and measured the length and width of it.  9 cm length , 7 cm width .I multiplied them both and got 63.
63 peaches would fit into the box.
