COMING UP: Review Quiz #1 (factors, GCF, LCM, integer basics, add/subtract integers)
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 26, 2017
TOPIC: Adding and Subtracting Integers (Gr7) - continued
TODAY: Factors/GCF/LCM Assignment #1 COLLECTED MONDAY! You started working on this last Wednesday. If you did not hand in a completed assignment today or yesterday or the day before that (which was Monday, the due date) it is "late" and you must get a parent/guardian to sign it before it will be accepted by your teachers. **You have an additional 1 day to complete and submit this assignment (Th) with a parent/guardian signature. Please refer to the Gr8 Course Overview that is posted on the Homepage of the Gr8 Blog for details on course expectations.
As a class we spot-checked the Integer Basics and Integer Addition practice that was due yesterday to make sure you were on track. A full solution key will be posted on D2L / Brightspace - make sure you check it out! We also spot-checked the Subtraction problems that you started yesterday.
Then the remainder of the class was time for you to complete independent work - practice, refinement, and mastering addition and subtraction of integers using models (tile diagrams) and algorithms (rules or 'short-cuts'). Remember to show all steps in each solution. A self-check for the tile diagrams is to ask yourself if someone else could interpret, follow, and understand your solution without seeing the original question. You may use a CALCULATOR to CHECK your work, not to do the calculations for you, please and thanks.
***Look back to the math posts for Monday and Tuesday for a refresher on integer basics, adding integers, and subtracting integers. Check out the links that have been provided for you.
PRACTICE PROBLEMS: "Subtraction Intro / Addition and Subtraction Wheels" - complete the front - all questions following the examples - YES this means you must show the "rewrite" step (first column was to be done for today - you had class time to work on the remainder).
Lost your handout? See yesterday's blog entry for a posted copy. Download and print.
NOTE - follow your math teacher's instructions when it comes to the 3 scaffolded practice sheets (in Ms T's class those were the square, circle, triangle choices in the clear buckets - these are not for homework BUT you should be doing a little bit of math every night, so ........ make a good decision).
What were Mrs. Burden's instructions?? Were you paying attention?
