MATH 6:  Today we took notes on dividing decimals by decimals, but tonight’s homework just involves dividing decimal numbers by whole numbers.

HW:  P. 65, Odd numbers 1-9.  Look at MSG notes from Monday and watch the following video if you need some help.  We will spend most of class tomorrow working through problems with decimal division.

6th Grade OPEN HOUSE at 6:30 tonight!!!

HW:  Long Division turning remainders into decimals, P. 49, #1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, and 10.

You may want to do it on a separate sheet of notebook paper and turn the paper horizontally so you can use the blue lines to keep your numbers in columns.  Remember to add a decimal and zeros to change the remainder to a decimal.  Do not go past the thousandths place even if your remainder isn’t zero.  Look at your MSG notes from today.

For a refresher on long division, watch the attached video:      long division

I have also attached a video of Mrs. Rudd working out a few of your homework problems.  Give it a look if you have trouble.

All Periods: HW: Look over your MSG notes tonight.   Complete p. 35, #2, 4, 6, 8 and the Study Guide. You can check your answers with the QR code.  If the Study Guide is signed by your parent then you can earn 5 points on your quiz tomorrow.

Currently, students are not able to access the online textbook.  When it is available to them, I will send information regarding login instructions,

PBIS login info

Students will not receive a QR code to access PBIS on their phone.  Students may login in on the student portal at https://student.pbisrewards.com/login.php.  When asked for school, type in Durham. Then they will enter their first initial, last initial and their student identification number (lunch number).  This should gain them access.

I apologize for the earlier confusion.

We are starting to get into a routine of going to lockers and having necessary materials for class. I’m sure by the end of the week students will have the hang of opening their lockers and getting needed materials.

Homework:  Multi-digit multiplication handout.   Students need to show work and complete the first two rows.

Monday, August 6

Remember to bring in your signed parent forms (clinic card, receipt of code of conduct, BYOD permission) in order to get a locker.
