Bell Ringer – Students reviewed rounding decimals to the tenths.

After the students checked their homework, I collected it and made sure the correct process was being used to solve the proportions and to set up and solve the word problems. Some students had incorrectly graded their work. I cautioned the students about honesty in grading.

The class work today was additional practice on solving proportions and word problems. This was turned in at the end of the period. For those who did not finish, they had extra time in advisory and turned in the work at 3:00.

We will review on Tuesday for a Test on Wednesday. The test will assess the following items: writing percents as decimals, writing percents as fractions, using the fraction method to find the percent of a number, using the decimal method for finding the percent of a number, proportions and proportion word problems.

All students MUST have their own basic 4 function calculator on Tuesday. Many students have been unable to complete their assignments in a timely manner because they do not have a calculator.
