Ms. Tyhonchuk

Ms. Burden

Ms. Vernon

Today we began a mathematics project:Picnic in the Park!Please find the document below. Students had a full class today to work on the project and will have a full class tomorrow as well. All six (6) pages are to be completed and handed in for grading (summative assessment) on Monday, December 4, 2017. Please come in for help on any parts of this unit prior to the exam. Our next unit on percent, rate, ratio, and proportion will begin the following week.Fractions Unit Exam: Thursday December 7th!

: The integers unit final exam was given back to most students yesterday and is available for pickup by students who have been away. Students have been asked to bring them home for a parents/guardians signature. Those exams need to be returned to me, signed by you, no later than Thursday, November 30th please.IMPORTANT!!!PARENTS Here is the answer key for the Exit Slip (formative assessment) done today in class. Students can use this as an additional study tool for their upcoming unit final exam next week.
As promised, here are the word problems that we began working on today in class. Please ensure your child is trying at least 4 of these problems per night over the next few nights as most students were only able to successfully complete the first 3-5 questions in 25 minutes of class time.PARENTS:There are 25 questions in total as well as a challenge page at the end.
An answer key will be provided in a few days so that students can check their answers.Supplemental Workbook: Do pages 60-66 this week!Yesterday we finished learning about division of mixed fractions by mixed fractions.Remember the 4 steps:**Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction****Find the lowest common denominator (LCD)****Divide the numerator of the first improper fraction by the numerator of the second (N1/N2)****Simplify it!**
Today in math we will be solving word problems using our knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions.Remember to come in for math help at lunchtime on Wednesday! Students were made aware of their upcoming unit exam next week!!!Today in Math: Dividing proper fractions by proper fractions.Download the following file for notes on today's class.
Homework: Be sure to complete both sides of your assignment, modeling division of whole numbers by proper fractions and division of proper fractions by whole numbers. This was assigned two days ago and needs to be accomplished if not already completed.DUE Monday, Nov. 27th.Today students were given a new practice sheet for division of proper fractions by proper fractions. They were asked to model any four (4) problems of their choice and solve the rest using the reciprocal method they were shown in class or by using the least common denominator method; which was also detailed in class.DUE Monday, Nov. 27th.All modeling and solution methods are outlined in the document above. Supplemental Math: pages 60-61. Today in math: Dividing proper fractions by whole numbers.Download the following file showing today's notes and more!
HOMEWORK: All problems on the front and back of today's handout with proper modeling.DUE Tomorrow!!!Download the homework here if your need it!
Supplemental Work Book: Do pages 58-59Today in math: Dividing whole numbers by proper fractions.Download the following document to see all of today's notes and more!
Use the following keys to check your work from this week:1. Key to your Multiplying Mixed Numbers practice work from this week (front only) 2. Key to your Formative Quiz (Exit Slip) on Wednesday, November 15th. Please come in for help if you had any problems with your work or quiz! Monday November 20th: We begin work on division of fractions.
Math Today:Today students were continuing to work on multiplication of mixed fractions. In addition we went back and reviewed addition and subtraction of mixed fractions in preparation for division of proper fractions and mixed fractions next week. Student Reports:All students were provided with their Student Reports and were asked to take them home to be reviewed and signed by their parents/guardians. Please have students return those as soon as possible. Math Work Tomorrow:Students should complete all questions on their mixed numbers multiplication. Any incomplete work will be assigned as homework over the four day break. Students are encouraged to come for assistance with math any Wednesday at lunch and may ask me for extra time and help as needed. I encourage students to ask questions, advocate for themselves, and get help when needed. FractionsUNIT: Multiplying Fractions (Gr8)TOPIC:TODAY:Because of the technology problems yesterday with the blog that resulted in a later than usual posting, at the start of class you were given time to complete last night's practice problem. We then reviewed the problem together using the rectangle method and checked our answer using the algorithm. You should have been correcting your work as we went along, and you now have 2 complete solutions in your notes that you can refer to, along with the guided example that I posted as a pdf. None assigned BUT your homework is to review the concepts from this past week (multiplying different forms of fractions using models and algorithms) and walk into class on Monday either understanding the material or ready to ask a question(s). CHECK OUT the attached videos! PRACTICE PROBLEMS: And do you want to prove to yourself that you understand how to multiply fractions with models and algorithms? Teach it to someone at home this weekend!Also, knowing your basic facts and being able to factor (find common factors and the GCF) made the work "easier" this week. Mental math is a critical element when learning new concepts. You need to free up the working memory of your brain to learn new ideas, meaning your brain needs room to store the new information until it is mastered and is moved to your long term memory. Basic facts must be in your long term memory. How do they get there? Consistent (regular) practice. Monday November 13, 2017DUE DATE: FractionsUNIT: Multiplying Fractions (Gr8)TOPIC: You explored how to multiply {Mixed Numbers} using a model, specifically a rectangle (area). From the guided example that we worked through in class, you were then able to see a pattern that lead us to derive the rule or algorithm for multiplying mixed numbers abstractly. And what did we discover??TODAY:Check out the attached file for a step-by-step review of what we covered in class.
Solve the following using a model (rectangle) THEN check/verify your answer by using the rule. Show all steps to both solutions.PRACTICE PROBLEMS: Friday November 10, 2017DUE DATE: |
