We had a great day working on a small group project involving writing and ordering rational numbers.  The students worked hard and worked well together!!!

I am so proud of our Red Team Students.  They raised $1946 which exceeded the team goal of $1932! Way to go students, parents, families, friends and neighbors!

I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Break.  Enjoy spending time with family and friends.

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.

Today was the beginning of our Toys for Tots Collection.  The School goal is $20,000 and OMMS has a history of meeting and exceeding our goal.  The Marines depend on our school to help provide a happy holiday to over 80,000 kids.  Donations will be collected in Math for the 6th Grade Red Team.  Our team goal is $1,932.  I have set individual class goals based on the number of students in each of my math classes.  I will post on the board the daily donations by class and keep the information up to date so the kids can see a cumulative total of the giving.  Families and Companies may use the TFT–Community Letter as a tax donation document.

All math classes will have a cumulative Algebra Test on Friday.
