Hello Math Brains,

Today in blocks 1,3, 4, and 5 you took the Unit 7 assessment.  There is no homework tonight, but here is a link to a quizizz review for Unit 3. https://join.quizizz.com/ game code: 319186.   If Prodigy is the review method you prefer, here is the link to the website:https://play.prodigygame.com/ Here are the class codes again so you can either join or keep reviewing.

B LOCK 1: 95C27D

BLOCK 2: DE47AE

BLCOK 3: 92323D

BLOCK 4: 6C54FF

BLOCK 5: 06F17F

In block 2 we looked the rules for adding and subtracting positive and negative integers (without a number line).  Homework tonight is complete the addition of positive and negative integer practice.  Here are the answers so you can check you work. 🙂

Hello Mathies,

Today in blocks 1, 3, 4, and 5 we reviewed for the Unit 7 assessment tomorrow.  Here is a link that you can use to prepare.

https://join.quizizz.com/ game code is 032297.

In block 2 we started adding and subtracting positive and negative integers.  Homework tonight is to complete the number line integer addition and subtraction problems. Please use the number line to model the solution.  It will help to build your number sense of positive and negative integers.

See you tomorrow. 🙂

There is NO math tutoring tomorrow morning. 

Hello Kiddos,

Today’s schedule was a little nutty, and I did not see all of you.  Of the students I did see, I surveyed them about their experience with Prodigy.  About 10% of the students using prodigy like it (a lot), and the rest of the students are not enjoying it as much.  The point of playing Prodigy is to review concepts from previous units in preparation for the Milestone test.  So, I came up with a compromise.

If you like Prodigy, then please keep using it.  I assigned a Milestone Review to all blocks, so as you progress through challenges you will be presented with questions from all the previous units.  Playing for about 10 minutes a day should give you enough time to get through the challenge.  If you do not like Prodigy, then don’t feel like you need to keep trying to like it.  I made a quizizz that you can play to review fraction division and decimal arithmetic.  Here is the link: https://join.quizizz.com/ and the game code is: 955476.  I do not expect you to do both of these, but pick the one you like best to practice.

If you are choosing the quizizz, I will make and post codes to quizziz for each unit.  I know I won’t get to that today, so just start with the one I posted, but I will post other links tomorrow for you to use as you see fit.

See you soon! 🙂

Hello Kiddos,

Tonight’s homework is to go to https://play.prodigygame.com/ and join a class if you have not already done that.  Once you are there (all logged in and everything), I have assigned you 15 problems to review fraction division.  I am sure you can find it, you are the “digital generation.” 🙂 Let me know how it goes tomorrow.

B LOCK 1: 95C27D

BLOCK 2: DE47AE

BLCOK 3: 92323D

BLOCK 4: 6C54FF

BLOCK 5: 06F17F (this is the right code)

See you tomorrow, kiddos!

Hello Mathies,

Homework tonight is to go to https://play.prodigygame.com/ and join a class.  Class codes are below.  You could probably copy and paste your class code into the browser.

BLOCK 1: 95C27D

BLOCK 2: DE47AE

BLCOK 3: 92323D

BLOCK 4: 6C54FF

BLOCK 5: 06F17F OR O6FI7F (I think it is the first code, which has a ZERO as the first digit.  If that does not work, try the second code, which has the letter O as the first digit).

See you tomorrow. 🙂

Hey Kiddos,

Today in class we continued reflecting on the coordinate grid.  Homework tonight is to complete the back 4 questions on the reflection practice.  See you tomorrow.

🙂

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we took notes on reflecting points and polygons on a coordinate grid.  Homework tonight is to do the front only of the reflection homework.  There is 5 on the bottom of the page you were assigned for homework tonight.  Please write the coordinates (A’, B’, C’…) and show the reflected polygon for each problem.

See you tomorrow, mathies.  Have a nice night.

Good afternoon, Mathies!  I had a nice day with you today.  Not that we did anything extra special, I just enjoyed our class time together.  Today in class you worked on an independent assignment where you were ordering integers, finding distance between integers, and plotting points on a coordinate grid.  Most of you finished in class today, but if you did not please finish that assignment at home tonight.

Here is a link to a resource that may help you feel more prepared for the online Milestone you will be taking soon.  This needs to be opened in GOOGLE CHROME, so make sure you are using the right browser.  This will give you an idea of what your screen will look like when you are taking the test.  http://www.gaexperienceonline.com/    ELA Milestones are May 24th and 25th.  The Math Milestone is May 6th and May 7th.

See you tomorrow, kiddos.  Hopefully you get to enjoy a little sunshine today. 🙂

Hello Mathies,

Today in class we continued to practice with ordering positive and negative rational numbers, using a number line to find distance between integers, and placing points accurately on a coordinate grid.  Tonight’s homework is:

  • Blocks 1, 3, 4, 5 – p. 859, #1-9
  • Block 2 – p. 859, #6-14 (skip #10)

Make sure you have your MSG tomorrow.  We are going to add notes on reflecting on the coordinate plane.

See you soon! 🙂
