The 6th Grade Red Team has reached 40% of their goal towards raising $1932 for Toys For Tots. Continue to donate this week through your math class. Don’t forget, you can participate in the Cocoa and PJ opportunities on Friday ($2 each) and the Faculty Volleyball game after school on Thursday ($2 which also pays for your admission to the basketball game afterwards). Those donations will go to the general school TFT fund!

Math 6 – Finished the Algebra Test and worked on the HW: Activity 8 Search and Shade Add and Sub Fractions (you should be able to look back in your composition book for reminders on subtraction with renaming – hint hint!)

Advanced - Notes: One Step Addition and Subtraction Equations with Integers

HW: TB page 211-212 problems 9-20 and 25-40. Make sure you show all three steps. Keep the equation balanced by showing the inverse operation on both sides of the equal sign. Also, don’t forget, you can check your work by substituting your solution into the equation to see if the statement is true. If you see two signs side by side on a subtraction equation (subtracting a negative number), simplify the signs first before you use the inverse operation. Example: 11- (-4) =15 would be simplified to 11+4 = 15 then solve.
