Students who missed the test on Friday, or who did not complete the test, were given class time to take or finish today. All Students then worked on the second page Enrichment activity involving Fraction operations today. classwork-and-hw-divide-fractions-puzzle-and-enrichment (page 2 only). We did page 1 on Thursday as a review before the test Friday.
Tomorrow we will leave for Project American Life. Pack your bags. Make sure you leave electronics and cell phones at home. We have been blessed with a great weather forecast.
We have a Dividing Fractions Test tomorrow. Students should use their composition notebooks to review the 6 steps to divide and the necessary skills for dividing fractions. There are many extra practice problems on Page EP6 and EP7 of the textbook. IXL.com is a wonderful website that will give you several free minutes of practice on dividing fractions.
Don’t forget that tomorrow is the last day to show your compassion by donating canned goods to Oak Mountain Missions and Manna Ministries.
The class notes-fraction-word-problems were completed in the Composition book. We focused on reading the word problem and using common sense, estimation, drawing pictures and writing what we already know to help us determine the appropriate problem to solve.
1)Students should circle the key words identifying what they are looking for.
2) Write the division problem to solve on the blank line.
3) Solve each problem on loose leaf paper.
We continued to practice dividing fractions today. Our Bell Ringer focused on simplifying before you multiply (Step 4 of the 6 division steps). Classwork from Friday was graded and returned to the students. If you were absent Friday, please make sure you get that turned in to me.
Don’t forget, we are collecting canned food items for Oak Mountain Missions and Manna Ministries. Donations may be delivered to your 7th period advisory teacher.
