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 this short week and regular week we will be focusing on multiplying and dividng positive and negative rational numbers. Quiz H will occur on Friday, Nov. 30.

This week we will be focusing on adding and subtracting rational numbers. Numbers will be positive and negative. There will be an emphasis on fractions and decimals. Quiz G will occur on Friday.

Videos that will help on Quiz G:

There are so many videos on these topics that I'm just going to direct you to a list of videos already provided.

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

This week we'll be learning about absolute value as well as ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. Quiz F will happen on Friday.

This week we will be learning about how to add and subtract positive and negative numbers. There will be classwork each day that will become homework if not finished in class.

Quiz E will be given on Friday.

Videos that will be useful for Quiz E. Some of these are repeats from past weeks, but it is all on quiz E. I realize this is a looooot of videos. Pick and choose the ones that you know you are needing more time with.:

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:

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:

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:

This week we'll be expanding our study of circles to include cylinders. We'll be studing the nets of cylinders as well as how to find the volume of a cylinder.

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

These are word problems. Try to figure out how to get to the answers which are provided. Please note that the answers should be labeled with a unit and cubed.

Sept. 10-14

This week we will be continuing our study of circles.

What is the relationship between the diameter and the circumference? What is Pi? How do you find the area of a circle?

Quiz B will be on Friday.

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