We took a Pop Quiz in class today on the topics we have been studying – integers in real life situations, graphing, comparing and ordering rational numbers, and applications with absolute value.
After the quiz the kids worked on a coordinate grid Mystery Picture. This should be completed and colored neatly. It can be colored with whimsical colors or real colors.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving week. Enjoy the time you have with your friends and families. Be safe in your travels.
Today, we checked the homework and then played Kahoot for a review of all of our integer and rational number studies. We also watched the Learn Zillion Videos for 6NS6c and 6NS6d which gave additional examples on Absolute Value.
Remember, tomorrow is the last day for TFT donations!
We continued to discuss Absolute Value today. Our first discussion came when we checked textbook page 419 on Monday.
Absolute Value Notes and HW
Continue to bring in TFT donations! Remember for a $2 TFT donation, the faculty Alabama vs Auburn volleyball match will be tomorrow right after school. You can stay for the basketball games that follow.
Note: GRC students will need to complete their set of notes from yesterday before completing the HW assignment. You may either work the problems in your notebook or print the worksheet and complete it on the page. Either will be fine with me.
Rational Numbers Notes and HW
Continue to bring in donations for TFT. If the 6th grade Red team meets or exceeds their $2,500 goal, I will eliminate written math homework for the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.!!!!!
Algebra Part 2 Tests were returned today. Several students need to finish or makeup that test and should report to my room at 7:20 in the morning to do so.
We discussed Rational numbers today and began to work on a set of notes and examples. We will finish the notes tomorrow and complete a practice page in class.
GRC students who will miss school tomorrow due to the field trip are reminded to check the blog and complete the notes and handout so they are ready to check the work in class on Wednesday.
TFT collections will continue for the rest of the week. A goal of $1,000 each has been made for both Alabama and Auburn and a goal of $500 for all of the “other” teams. Mrs. Burdett has agreed to assign NO written Homework for the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas if our team reaches the $2,500 Team goal. Classwork and Tests or quizzes will still be an option.
Mrs. Burdett was absent today. Students worked on completing Classwork Integers and Absolute Value. We will continue to work on Integers and Rational numbers next week.
I hope you all enjoyed your Veterans Day!
Today we brainstormed about integers by completing a Number Line Observations quick write.
We also completed most of the Notes Integers . We will continue to work on these concepts tomorrow. I ended class with a quick review using the website Virtual Nerd – the lesson on integers. I would encourage students to seek this site for help and explanation.
The students took the Algebra Test part 2 today in class. There was no written homework. We will begin our study on Integers on Thursday. Please continue to support our Toys for Tots campaign by making a financial contribution. Every nickle counts!
Algebra Test Part 2 is tomorrow. Students worked on Albebra Test Part 2 REVIEW in class today. We will go over it tomorrow before we take the test.
Remember to bring in your TFT donations!
Algebra Test Part 2 is Tuesday. We will Review in class on Monday.
Today we watched two Learn Zillion Videos on Writing verbal expressions as Algebraic expressions. Please feel free to go to the Learn Zillion Website and watch the videos again. The Quick Codes for access to the videos are DU4Q6DC and MJ843UJ.
We also completed the worksheet Verbal to Algebraic Classwork during class.
Don’t forget to bring in your Toys for Tots Money on Monday. We will collect for the next 9 days. Our school goal is $20,000. The Red Team goal is around $2,500.
