Oct. 15-16

During this very short week we will be practing converting decimals to fractions and vice versa, as well as ordering rational numbers on a number line and plotting inequalities on a number line. Students will be recieving 3 worksheets to do in class, but whatever is not finished by the allotted time in class will become homework. There will not be a quiz this week, but in case you would like a refresher on what we are studying this week:

The videos below will be a useful review for Quiz E (taken next week) and what we learned this week:

Oct. 8-12

On Monday and Tuesday we'll have our final day of review for Unit 1. The Unit 1 test will begin on either Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the length of time needed for review. You should review the previously posted videos in order to make sure that you understand and can demonstrate each concept. Unit tests are worth 30% of the final grade and there are no retakes.

After the Unit 1 test is finished we'll be starting Unit 2 on Integers and Rational Numbers. In this unit, students will extend their knowledge of the number system to include positive numbers nd their opposites (negative numbers). Students will develop methods to perform arithmetic operations with positive and negative numbers, as well as exploring order of operations and the Distributive Property. Students will also graph positive and negative numbers on a number line and plot ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. 

We'll begin by learning the vocabulary for different types of numbers, placing numbers on a number line, and then comparing inequalities.

Students will create a new notebook for Unit 2. The Unit 1 notebook on Geometry should be kept in your binder until the end of Qtr. 1.  

There will not be a quiz on Friday this week due to the large test midweek. 

The videos below will be a useful review for Quiz E (in 2 weeks) and are what we learned this week: 

What's an Integer?

What's Another Definition for an Integer?

What are Natural and Whole Numbers?

How Do Different Categories of Numbers Compare to Each Other?

What are Positive and Negative Numbers?

What is the Opposite,or Additive Inverse, of a Number?

What is a Rational Number?

How Do You Put Integers in Order Using a Number Line?

How Do You Compare Integers Using a Number Line?

 

Oct. 1-5

We have finished all new learning for unit 1. This week will be spent reviewing content in order to prepare for the unit test next week. You should review the posted videos in order to make sure that you understand and can demonstrate each concept. Unit tests are worth 30% of the final grade and there are no retakes. There will not be a quiz on Friday this week.

 

Sept. 24-28

This week we'll be learing how to find the surface area of a cylinder. 

On Tuesday, please bring in a cylinder that is large enough to be measured. It needs to have both bases. You will get your cylinder back, but it will be handled by many people. 

On Thursday there is FAST testing.

On Friday there is, like always, a quiz. 

The videos below will be a useful review for Quiz D:

How Do You Find the Lateral and Surface Areas of a Cylinder?

What is the Formula for the Surface Area of a Cylinder?
