This week we are starting Unit 4, which is all abour rational numbers. Things that we will be covering during Unit 4 are:

-Estimating

-Multiplying and dividing decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers

-Solving real world problems with decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers

-Making equivalent expressions using the order of operations and mathematical properties

-Comparing fractions, decimals and percents using equality and inequality symbols

-Using percents in daily life

This week we'll be focusing on estimating. Tuesday and Wednesday we'll be doing the FAST test, so we won't have a quiz this Friday.

This week will not have videos or optional practice posted.

Dec. 16-20

This week we will be learning how to find the volume of rectangular prisms and triangular prisms. The big Unit 3 test happen on Thursday this week. This includes everything from both Unit 3 notebooks and content from Quizzes E, F, G, H, and I. Look in the Weeks Past section to review. Students are allowed to use a "cheat sheet" on this quiz. Anything that can fit on the index card can be used on the test.

This week we will be looking at how to find the surface area and volume of triangular prisms, as well as how to find the volume of rectangular prisms. Quiz I will happen on Friday.

This week we are continuing to think about about finding the area of different shapes. We will be thinking about kites, rhombi, trapezoids, and irregular shapes. Quiz F will be on Friday.

The following videos will be helpful as you prepare for Quiz F:

This week we are beginning Unit 3. Unit 3 focuses on 2-D and 3-D geometry. We'll begin by learning how to find the area and perimeter of triangles and parallelograms. Quiz E will occur on Friday.

This week we will be be reviewing Unit 2 and taking the Unit 2 test on Tuesday. This is a challenging test and can not be retaken. You will want to pay close attention to the review on Monday and spend time outside of class studying. Content from quizzes B,C, and D will be on this test.

Oct. 21-25

This week we'll be covering how to multiply and divide fractions. Quiz D will occur on Friday.

***The unit 2 test will occur on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. To prepare for the unit test, you will want to be familiar with everything in your Unit 2 notebook, as well as everything from quizzes B, C, and D. This is a very challenging test. Please be as prepared as you can possibly be.

The quarter is coming to an end soon. All quiz retakes and missing work must be turned in by Wednesday, Oct. 30.

The following videos may help prepare you for Quiz D:

All of the videos listed for Quiz C that have to do with multiplying fractions (see the Weeks Past section)

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.
