This made my day! Thanks! You guys are all spectacular and bring me more joy than I can articulate! Thank you for making me smile and laugh every day! Miss K :)

Only 2.5 days left after today! :)

Hey everyone!  I know that you were hoping for a snow day today, but hopefully you were happy to get in a little bit of extra practice for the math test!

Tonight's homework is:
1.  Study for Wednesday's test
2.  Complete the study guide for tomorrow
3.  Work on the optional worksheets

As you know, the multitude of worksheets I passed out today are optional, but I encourage you to work on the problems that you tend to have difficulty with.  Believe me, there is a little bit of everything on those sheets.  Do what you think will help you prepare for the test.  We will review answers in class tomorrow and go over some additional word problems.

You can also begin working on your index card.  Below you will find an example of what the card might look like...  Feel free to write down notes, examples, whatever you think will help you! 



Best of luck on tonight's homework and be sure to review previous posts to see video tutorials on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions!  Always remember to Simplify, simplify, simplify!!!

Do your Homework!

No snow...  We are going to have school tomorrow!

Make sure that you do your homework!

Dividing fractions!

Easy, huh?  Check out the video in yesterday's post if you are having any trouble!

Tonight's homework is to complete the dividing worksheet (most of you finished ~or at least came close~ during class) and the study guide is due Tuesday.

Have a wonderful weekend.  Keep your eyes on the weather...

It looks like it might have moved East and therefore won't hit us...

Multiplying and dividing fractions.

As you know, we started multiplying today...  (easy, wasn't it?)

Use this video to review and (if you want) to begin learning about division.  Both are way easier than adding and subtracting.



Tonight's homework is to complete the Multiplying Fractions worksheet.  The study guide is also due on Tuesday to help you prepare for next Wednesday's test on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions.

More adding and subtracting...


It was really nice to see you guys again today!  I hated missing school the last two days and I was glad to be back even if I sounded a little froggy...  Tonight you have 16 adding and subtracting mixed numbers problems.  Work carefully, show your work, and be sure to simplify.  

Tomorrow we will start working on multiplying fractions.  Believe it or not, multiplying and dividing are much easier than adding and subtracting with fractions.  They don't use those pesky common denominators.

Good luck on tonight's homework and I will see you tomorrow!
