Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we continued to practice with division of fractions.  Homework tonight is p. 161, #12-22.

*Block 5 – your homework is different because we ran out of time today.  Please finish the assignment you were given in class as your homework, but don’t forget it tomorrow since it will be graded for accuracy.*

See you tomorrow. 🙂

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we used models to show the division of fractions. There is no assigned homework tonight, but you will have homework tomorrow so budget your time accordingly.

Today was an exciting day because we kicked off our COLOR  BATTLE!  Your 3rd block is your team, and of course all teams want to WIN!! Remember to visit https://anython.com/. You will need the access code your 3rd block teacher gave you in class today.

See you tomorrow!

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we learned a couple of methods for finding the GCF and LCM of sets of whole numbers.  This is where those divisibility tricks you took notes on yesterday came in handy.  Here is a picture of the solutions for the first 10 homework problems:

If you feel like you want some more practice, here is a link to a video where I will work through #6 – #9 with you.  Grab a pencil, a pen, and your homework and we can work “together.” Homework tonight is from the book Riddle Math Reproducible Activities by Mastermind Publications.

# 8-20-18

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we placed divisibility rules and information about prime numbers in our MSGs.  Tonight blocks 1, 2, 3, and 5 have homework.  Since there was a fire drill in 4th block we did not make it through enough instruction for me to assign you the same homework. 4th block – you will get this homework tomorrow, but here are the instructions for the rest of the classes.

Step 1.  Write your student ID at the top of your green, half-sheet of paper.

Step 2 . Write your name

Step 3.  Use your MSG to test y our student ID for divisibility for numbers 2 – 9.  You have the rules, so all you need to do is apply them to your ID number.  If you forgot your MSG here is link to divisibility rules so you can still complete your homework. https://contentedathome.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Divisibility-Rules.jpg

Please remember to bring your MSG to class daily.  It is the most used math tool you will have this year, and being prepared is one of the keys to staying strike-free.

Have a nice Monday.  See you tomorrow. 🙂

Hello Mathies,

Today in class we continued practicing with division of multi-digit decimal numbers. We will practice more tomorrow, but I want to remind you that there is an OPEN NOTE quiz on Friday. Here are the answers to tonight’s homework.  I double checked my work, so I am *hoping* there are no mistakes. 🙂

P. 73, #1-6 and #9

2. 116
3. 250
4. 230
5. 450
6. 0.8

b) If he gets a raise he will need to work 21.12 more hours to buy the video game system.

See you tomorrow!

Hello Kiddos,

I want to remind all of you of the wild cat way expectations:

• Be Prepared.  That means you are coming to class with your materials.
• Be Punctual. That means you are coming to class on time.
• Be Cooperative. That means you are making yourself easy to teach and to work with.
• Be Respectful. That means you are treating your teacher and classmates the way you would like to be treated.

Since we are in the third week of school, I am issuing strikes when these expectations are violated.  Strikes can keep you out of Fun Friday and change your conduct grade in class. Make sure you are ready to do your best in each class.

We continued to practice with long division today in class.  We are now solving problems with decimals in the dividends.  Tonight’s homework is p. 65, #1-10 odd (so really 1, 3, 5, 7, 9).  Here is a picture of the homework that you can use to help or to check yours.

Oops… I made a mistake on #9.  Even teachers need to be careful! 🙂

# 8-13-18

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we finished quizzes that needed to be finished from Friday, got back a graded assignment, and took notes on long division with decimal remainders. Homework tonight, for all classes, is p. 49, #1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 10.  All of the numbers in those problems “play nicely” together and are a good place to review and practice with long division.  Here is a video that will help you with your homework if you are feeling stuck.

Here are another links that may help you if you’d just like to hear someone else explain division.  Sometimes another perspective is all you need if you are feeling a little confused. 🙂

The good news is, this way of dividing is the same way your grown ups divided in school, so you can also and always ask for help at home.

See you tomorrow!
