We took our quiz on the Divisibility Rules today. Students should make a connection to that lesson and our lesson on GCF. The divisibility Rules help students identify the factors of a number. The ultimate goal of finding the GCF is to be able to simplify a fraction, however we will also look at problems in real life that utilize finding the GCF.
HW October 18
We continued to practice the divisibility rules through our bellringer and playing Kahoot. We will take a MC/True False/Fill in the blank quiz tomorrow. Students should have memorized the rules on their notes page and be able to apply the rules to numbers.
We will finish the week by studying GCF (greatest common factor) and LCM (least common multiple).
We are now in the 2nd Nine Weeks of School. Students on the Blue Team should have received their Report Cards on Friday when we returned from PAL.
Students may clean out the Notes and Homework sections of their binders as well as replenish the clean notebook paper for the 2nd Nine weeks. Make sure you keep the Handouts from today and anything from your bell ringer section dated 10/2 through 10/5.
We began to study the divisibility rules today. We watched 2 YouTube Videos and then reviewed the Notes handout. We also began to work on the Shading Homework. Students should finish that tonight. We will have a quiz on the divisibility rules on Wednesday.

We will practice dividing decimals for the remainder of the week. Our 9 Weeks assessment will be Tuesday, October 3.
Students worked in class on Multiplying Decimals by whole numbers and decimals. The handout was multiple choice and we checked it at the end of the period. Those students who were not finished should show their work to get to the correct answer that was shared in class.
HW September 22 There was a typo on #7. The first word should be “The”. Also the numbering is off, so it is really just 12 problems.
Our test Monday is on Adding, Subtracting and Multiplying Decimals.
