Week of Dec. 3-7

This week we will be studying the Order of Operations (many students are already very familiar with this) and finding the value of numerical expressions using the Order of Operations. There will be a worksheet on this on Tuesday.

For example, 8-3+4x6

We will also be evaluating algebraic expressions using the Order of Operations. There will be a worksheet on this on Wednesday. 

For example:  4y+5-3z   if y=2 and z=6.  

Quiz I will happen on Friday.

Would you like additional practice?

At the top of Math's main page there is a link to a book for reviewing prior skills. The following pages from that book pertain to these topics. These pages will let you practice how to do the procedures of the operations, but keep in mind that we are now thinking about positive and negative numbers, as well. 

adding fractions: p. 55, 56

adding decimals: p. 21,22

subtracting fractions: p. 59, 60

 

subtracting decimals: 23, 24

Nov. 5-9

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:

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?

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.
