Welcome Back!  It’s a new year, but is it a new you?  I challenged students to think about what they could do at home and at school to be their best.  They all have a clean slate as far as grades are concerned so they can give their best effort to do good this semester.

Math 6:  We reviewed how to solve fractional coefficient equations and started learning about functions.  HW:  p. 499, #1-5

MATH 7:  We took the Unit 3 Touchstone.  HW:  none

Monday, December 18

Tuesday and Wednesday are early release days!  School dismisses at 1: 30!

MATH 6:  Started Equation Test. We will finish tomorrow.  If you were absent today, then you need to look over your notes and be prepared to start tomorrow.

MATH 7:  Started Percent Test.  We will finish tomorrow.

Friday, December 15

MATH 6:  Complete the practice for division and multiplication problems.  We will go over the answers on Monday before we start the test.  Make sure to read through your MSG notes on equations.  Watch the Mathantics videos on solving basic equations.  Look at previous blog posts.  FractionalCoefficients-2eqlid9

MATH 7:  Test Monday on application of percents!  Practice, practice, practice.  Complete blue foldables on  Sales tax and tips, and Sale and discounts.   You can also do some of the problems on Pedro’s Cafe.  Practice with Quizizz using the codes I posted on Thursday.  Many of you may be out shopping this weekend so talk to your parents about sales and discounts and what that means.  Pay attention to your lunch or dinner bill if you happen to eat out and talk about how your parents figure tip for the meal.

MATH 6:  Check for missing assignments in Synergy.  Get them turned in ASAP!  HW:  Watch the Mathantics video (on yesterday’s post) if you didn’t get a chance yesterday.  Textbook p. 473, #18-26.  Show your work.  TEST corrections are due on Friday for 2nd and 3rd period, but due Monday for 4th period.  Test on Monday over 1 step equations.

MATH 7:  Check for missing assignments in Synergy.  HW:  Textbook, p. 503, #1-6.  Be sure to look at blue OMG notes on how to find discounts.  The bright yellow Percent Problems notes also have examples of how to solve discounts and sales price problems.  Remember you are looking for the “part” that needs to be added or subtracted from the original price.  Some problems require multiple steps. Think about whether or not your answer makes sense.  Test Monday on application of percents.  Your textbook has lots of good information in Chapter 6: lessons 5, 6 and 7.
