Lil bit O Fraction review!

Today we reviewed multiplying and dividing with fractions.  Please don't forget about cross cancelling to make your problems easier.  Tonight's homework is to complete both sides of both worksheets.  PLEASE use your pink sheet as needed to help you!  If you need a copy, click here, select "Pink" sheet and download that file.  You can use it on the computer or print it out!

Red Class:  I did not tell you to skip one of the problems on tonight's homework that has really difficult numbers.  On the Multiplying Mized numbers paper, you should skip the bottom right problem in the grid.  It is right above the picture of the two cows and the horse.


Have a good night everyone!

16 more days left...

Almost everyone has completed the integer test, so expect to get your tests back in the next few days.

I am working on the field trip groups, but it will take me a few days.  A word to the wise...  The more you bug me about it, the less likely I will be to take the extra time to ensure that you get what you want.  There are 94 students on our team and 20 different chaperones...  That's a lot of possible combinations and I want to try to meet everyone's needs, so give me some time!

No Homework tonight!  Just have a great evening!

One month from today is the first day of Summer Break!!!

Hello all!

I missed you on Friday.  As you all probably know by now, I fell and hurt myself on Thursday and am on crutches.  Super bummerino if I do say so myself!  :(  Thanks to all of you that have been so helpful and kind!

There is no homework this evening.  In class today we were able to spend some time talking about adding and subtracting with integers.  We also got to play another card game as we practiced.  :)  Tomorrow we will begin to work with absolute value!  More info to follow!

adding and subtracting integers!

Today we began adding and subtracting with integers.  I KNOW it was confusing...  tomorrow will make it better!  Tonight's homework is the integer worksheet.  Remember to add on the adding page and subtract on the subtracting side.  I know that sounds obvious, but the questions are a little confusing and knowing the correct operation will make it easier!

Best of luck and have a good night!

-Miss K  :)

Today we began working with integers.  As you know integers represent both positive and negative values.  Tonight, for homework, you will use the values to compare and order.  Please complete both sides of both integer worksheets.  Tomorrow we will play a game with integers and will soon begin adding and subtracting with integers. 

Game one  Select numbers -10 to +10 and then begin!

Comparing Integers

Have fun!

No homework since we had the test today.  Instead, I bring you the Star Wars Trilogy (eps 4-6) in Legos in less than two and a half minutes.

Cool Google chome ad!

You know that I am a Google Geek.  Check out this new ad for Google Chrome...

-Miss K  :)

Test tomorrow!


(Did you get that?)

Anyway, we have the test tomorrow!  Study, Study!  Be sure to check over your old work and really practice the Order of Operations problems.

Last minute reminders and hints!!!

Squared means to the second power, cubed means to the third power.  Ten to a power should have as many zeroes as the power says.  RECOPY each line in the Order of Operations problems.  Side by side means multiply.  Exponents tell you how many times to multiply the base number by itself, don't multiply the base number by the exponent.  Decimals go after the first digit when you are putting something into Scientific Notation.  Do all of the work out!!!

Good luck!  See you tomorrow!

Scientific Notation and getting ready for Thursday's Test

Everyone did a really great job in class today.  I was very pleased with everyone's performance on last night's homework and I was also very impressed by how many 100's there were!  Tonight you need to complete both Study Guides for homework.  Remember that the packet study guide that you got today will be graded.  Take some extra time on that one!!!  :)

Since people seemed to like the games that we played in class today, there are links below to each one.

Game One                       Game Two

Have a great night and best of luck on that Study Guide!!!!
