MATH 6: Finish the fraction division classwork for homework. You will have a quiz tomorrow over GCF, LCM, and fraction division. You will be able to use your MSG notes on the quiz so make sure you bring it to class tomorrow. Review the videos on dividing fractions if you have questions.
MATH 6: Today we worked on modeling the division of fractions. I’m sure some of you felt very comfortable with what we were doing and others of you were feeling a bit of panic. Rest assured we will make sure to do enough examples that you will all be feeling ok about it by the end of the day tomorrow. With the Color Battle Kickoff some classes did not get as much covered as others. Mathantics has some great videos on fractions if some of you need some reminders about working with fractions. I have attached the one on adding and subtracting fractions, but feel free to watch some of the others once you are done with this one.
MATH 6: HW: p. 170, #27-32. Be sure to show your work! If you haven’t finished all your warm-ups through Thursday then you need to finish them tonight. They will need to be turned in at the end of class tomorrow.
MATH 6: Today we saw the relationship between using the “cake” method to find GCF and LCM and how it can take less time when you this method. HW: p. 169, all problems. Solve using “cake,” “sled” or “ladder” as the following video calls it. This video will tie into tomorrow’s lesson on reducing fractions.
Today we covered divisibility rules and prime numbers. We will use those to prepare for LCM, GCF, and reducing fractions. I hope looking at your multiplication table, the divisibility rules and the prime numbers chart helped you see some of the relationships between numbers.
HW: Find what numbers your Student ID number is divisible by. Use the Divisibility Rules to check.
