Students studied the “Dr. Pepper” method of changing decimals to percents and percents to decimals today! Ask your student to show you how to use this method of working with percents & decimals!

We are having a major quiz on Friday on Conversions…..converting inches to feet to yards, cups to pints to quarts to gallons, ounces to pounds, minutes to hours, days to years. Your student was given a Conversion Chart way back on 2-10-2014 to utilize as we worked with conversions during our PowerUps (bellringers). A pop quiz on Monday revealed students had not committed these conversions to memory, so as part of our sixth grade math curriculum, we have put much focus on these conversions this week. Hopefully our quiz on Friday will reveal that this skill has been mastered!
