***PLEASE REMEMBER TO SHARE YOUR RESULTS OF THE FIRST MATH QUIZ WITH YOUR PARENTS/GUARDIANS, HAVE THEM SIGN IT, AND THEN SHOW YOUR MATH TEACHER. Thank you to those students who brought in their signatures today!
TOPIC: Multiplying and Dividing Integers using Algorithms (Sign Rules)
TODAY: As a class we reviewed the 4 questions assigned as practice work. Solutions for this practice is on D2L - see "Content", see "Unit 2 - Integers". Also posted on D2l under 'Content', under "Review", is a solution key for your Review Quiz #1 that was returned in yesterday's class. Then it was time for you to do some independent work on practicing and refining your skills for multiplying (x 40) and dividing (x 40) integers using the "rules for signs" (same signs - positive, different signs - negative). This was also continued practice on your basic multiplying and dividing foundational skills.
Please use the following procedure that was described in class:
1. Complete all the questions that you can (front and back) without any aids, meaning you are completing questions by inspection or some other method that you can do in your head or with a little bit of "scratch" work.
2. Go back and try any questions you missed the first time - maybe another question tweaked your memory or maybe your brain is now warmed up.
3. Circle or hi-lite or somehow mark the questions you still could not complete.
4. Complete these questions with the help of a Multiplication Table.
WHY ARE WE ASKING YOU TO FOLLOW Steps 1-4? You're hoping that some patterns will emerge - maybe you don't know your 6 times tables, maybe you're not sure how to tackle any problems where you a multiplying numbers larger than 10 or 12. You're hoping that this will show you what you need to work on in order to improve your overall math skills.
PRACTICE PROBLEMS: None assigned as this is your first official long weekend of the year! But, this is an excellent opportunity to catch up if you are behind in any of your classes.
