This week we'll begin our second unit of study: Rational Numbers. We'll be starting by talking about how to find equivalent fractions.

On Monday, many students opted to take the Unit 1 test this week instead of last week. For those students, they will begin thier week with a test. Unit 1/Notebook 1 will be collected.

On Tuesday, there will be a pretest for Unit 2 to help me understand where students' are strong and where there is room to grow.

On Wednesday and Thursday, we'll be concentrating on equivalent fractions.

On Friday, students will take Quiz B.

The following videos will help you prepare for Quiz B:

This week we'll be learning how to use the Order of Operations when working with problems that include fractions. Fastbridge testing will happen on Friday, so there will not be a quiz this week. Our final unit test will happen next week.

Thiw week we'll be focusing on prime factors, least common multiples (LCM), greatest common factors (GCF), and finding common denominators in order to do problems with fractions. Quiz A will happen on Friday, which will cover everything that we have studied since the beginning of the year.

Our year begins with Numbers and Operations. This week we will be learning about multiples, factors, and finding/listing the prime factors of a number using exponents.
