Quiz Friday on Exponents and Numerical Expressions.

Order of Operations Notes for all classes.  Remember – NO EQUAL SIGNS, Only show one step at a time!!!

Math 6 HW:  Numerical Expressions
Advanced HW:  Adv Numerical Expressions HW EVENS ONLY :)  Remember that when a number is right beside a parentheses without an operation symbol, it means multiply.  For example, 5(3)  means 5 times 3.  Also, if there is an exponent outside of a set of parentheses then you must find the value of the grouping symbol first and then let that value be the base to the ex0ponent.

All students received a new assigned seat today.  We also cleaned out our binders.  Students rolled their graded/used papers together and bound them.  I  now have them stored in my classroom.  We also learned how to use the 10 Point Scale.  We will use this scale to take grades on all of our future homework assignments.  Students locate the intersection of the number of problems on the assignment and how many they missed to identify their grade out of 10 points.  We individually practiced using the scale by completing the 10 Point Scale Practice.

No School on Monday.  Have a great long weekend.

No assignments.  Today we watched the first of 5 videos in the MathNet Series.  The videos are based on the 1970′s tv series Dragnet.  Today’s episode was called, The Case of the Missing Dirt.  The movies are filled with little tidbits of math.  Concepts in today’s story included, sales tax, patterns, multiplying fractions, division and problem solving.

All classes continued to work on their benchmark test today.  There is no homework tonight.

Students are reminded to bring in canned goods for Oak Mountain Missions and Manna Ministry.  The grade level homeroom with the most cans will be rewarded with a pizza party!  We are about 1000 cans short of our school goal.  Please consider donating since some of our very own students receive help from these two organizations.
