Friday, September 21st

Today the students continued to practice writing ratios and using ratio language.  The students practiced with word problems, using our word problem strategy, and wrote ratios and sentences.  I have provided additional online practice below.

The students were given Part I of their Math Workbooks.  They are to work on pages 26, 27, 51, 107, 115, 151 and 161 over the break.

Have a great break!

Wednesday, September 19th

Today the students began Unit 2: Ratios and Proportional Reasoning.  We began with a Brain Pop on what ratios are and then we glued notes into our notebooks.  The students looked at pictures of different quantities and used ratio language to write about ratio relationships.  I have provided a link for online practice of writing ratios below.

Friday, September 14th

Today the students began taking their Unit 1 Test over adding and subtracting decimals, multiplying and dividing decimals, multiplying and dividing fractions, and LCM and GCF.  The students will complete the test on Monday, so continue to practice and study those skills.  You can use the websites below to practice and review all concepts from this unit.

Wednesday, September 12th

Today the students received notes on Keywords for LCM and GCF Word Problems. We glued those notes into our Math Notebooks, and they received several practice word problems to determine if we are using LCM or GCF to solve the problems.  I have provided a practice site below for your student to practice keywords for LCM and GCF.

Tuesday, September 11th

Today the students continued to practice finding the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) and Least Common Multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers. They completed their notes in their Interactive Math Notebook.

I have provided some websites that explains how to find those concepts. I have also added some online practice below.

Monday, September 10th

Today the students began to discuss Greatest Common Factor (GCF).  They were given notes to glue into their math notebooks and they will continue to practice tomorrow.  They will also begin discussing and practicing Least Common Multiple.

The students will be given their first Unit Assessment this Friday, September 14th.  The test will cover all skills learned up to this point in the year, including adding and subtracting decimals, multiplying and dividing decimals, multiplying and dividing fractions, GCF and LCM.  I have provided links for tutorial videos, as well as online practice for the students to practice at home.

Wednesday, September 5th

Today the students reviewed multiplying fractions and began practicing dividing fractions.  The students took notes in their math notebooks and practiced a few problems. We watched the Math Antics video on how to divide fractions, which I have added below for their review. I have also provided some online practice for your student to continue to practice.
