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.*
Today in class we took MSG notes on dividing fractions using standard algorithm (K-C-F). Homework tonight is p. 139, #1-12. Here are the answers to the first 9 so you can check to see if you are on the right track.
20/3 or 6 and 2/3
16/5 or 3 and 1/5

Remember to come to class with your MSG, writing utencils (preferably a pencil), a highlighter, a glue stick (or tape) and something that writes in color daily. All of these items are on the 6th grade supply list and are necessary for you to do your best. The 6th grade supply list can be found here if you need another copy. Supply List
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.
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 MathReproducible Activities by Mastermind Publications.
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.
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
9. a) He will have to work 24 more hours to buy the video game system
b) If he gets a raise he will need to work 21.12 more hours to buy the video game system.
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! 🙂
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.
