Students practiced identifying the GCF and LCM of a set of numbers today as a bellringer.  During class students reviewed 4th and 5th grade standards of adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.  We will continue to review this skill this week prior to moving on to multiplying and dividing fractions.

The class work to finish for HW was page 15 in the textbook.

Our 9 weeks assessment is next week.  Students will receive a study guide to work through with suggested problems.  They should go ahead and begin reviewing the notes in their composition books.

Don’t forget to dress up as a super hero tomorrow!

The Decimal operations test is tomorrow.  Students will use the standard algorithm to add, subtract, multiply and divide decimals.

decimal-review-2-all-operations-for-test – worked on in class.  Students were able to check during advisory.  We did make a correction to number 11.  It shows a subtraction sign, but it should be a multiplication sign.  Also, on number 20, we rounded our answer to the hundredths place.

This is posting late due to the internet outage in Shelby County on Monday.

Students have a big “gold” test on Wednesday.  We completed decimal-review-1-for-test in class.  If you did not finish in class, it does become homework.

Mrs. Burdett was out of class today due to off site Math Department Meetings.

Students checked Wednesday’s homework and then practiced rounding decimal quotients.  There is no homework tonight.

Tomorrow, the students will be taking the 1st Nine Weeks ACT Aspire Math Interim Assessments. This is not a test you need to study for.  The interim assessments results will be used by the students and the teachers to identify areas and skills where the students as a whole, or individually have not performed well and will need remediation.

I returned and reviewed the Multiplying Decimals quiz today and students filed it in the test folder.

We practiced placing the decimal correctly in the quotient.  If the problem involved dividing by a whole number, we moved the decimal in the dividend straight up into the quotient.  If the divisor had a decimal in it, we multiplied by the power of 10 that made the divisor a whole number and made the same change to the dividend prior to moving the decimal point up into the quotient. notes-decimal-placement-practice
