All sorts of percents!

Today we began working backwards with percents, finding the whole from the part we know, finding the percent from the part and whole, finding the part from the percent and whole....  that sounds confusing just writing it!!!  Please take a look at the information below if you are stuck on anything!  Especially Red class (since I wasn't in class due to a meeting)

We will go over everything in class, so please just try your best, show your work and be ready to talk about it!

Have a great night!!!

Blog Homework

Hey everyone!  Tonight's homework is right here!

1.  Please read all 3 steps to know what to do to complete your homework.  If you just read that, you've completed step 1.  :)

Game #1 (we've done this one before so you might want to try the others first)

Game #2 (fun but noisy)

Game #3 (some tricky ones, so be careful!)

2. Play any of these 3 games for 15 minutes TOTAL.  (That means one game for 15 minutes, or each game for 5 minutes, or one for 10 minutes and another for 5, etc.)  If none of the games work, please have an adult type person write a note letting me know that it wouldn't work and then proceed to #3.

3.  Tomorrow in class, please draw a simple star next to your name on the graded class assignment.  It doesn't need to be fancy or big, but I should be able to see it near your name.  I will know you did the homework if you do this, so please do not forget!

Have a great night!

Tonight's homework on Percent

Soooo... with our funky schedule due to our awesome assembly today, I realized that it will be difficult to get everything in during class, so tonight's homework is here.  Please READ and FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS to complete your assignment!

You may need to use a desktop or laptop for these games as many games will not work on a phone or tablet.

Play this game!

Then play this one!

Look at these infographics about population and write down 3 things that you find interesting.  Please know that some of the numbers do not match from one graphic to the other.  Most are very close, so focus on the general information rather than the exact numbers as you think about the information.

I'm doing work and missing you!

Hey all!

So I'm sitting in a room with two computers in front of me and working on curriculum planning.  I'd really rather be hanging out with you guys, but the work I am doing is important for planning the work we will do in the future.  I hope that the review packet is helping you prepare for the quiz. As you know, tonight's homework is to study for Friday's quiz.  The packet will help with that!

Have a great day!  Miss you!
