hope you all had a nice long weekend. My parents came to visit, so we had fun
eating, chatting, eating, buying Christmas wreaths, playing games, and eating.
week in math, we are going to take a test on the fraction lessons we covered in
CC. I am attaching a paper test for you to print and review and/or complete.
Use your math notebook, the fraction blog lessons, your X chart, and any other resources
to make sure you know the material before taking the test.
CC last week, some students said they would like to take a paper/pencil test,
while others prefer to complete the problems on the whiteboard in Class
Connect. I am giving you the option to do what works best for you.
HERE ARE YOUR CHOICES:
the paper test, scan it and email it to me by Friday, 12/2/16.
the paper test and transfer all work and answers to whiteboard slides in
the test in CC using whiteboard tools tomorrow.
This is the coolest way to add and subtract fractions.
BOOM BOOM POW!
Confused? Watch this video (at least the first 4:44 minutes).
It's a quick way to solve fraction addition and subtraction problems with unlike denominators.
Here are the notebook pages for this week's lesson. Please make sure your notebook is up to date before next Tuesday's lesson. Notebook printables can be found in the CC recording and in your k-mail. Remember, you can click on any image to enlarge it.
If you were not at the live session, remember to
send me the Quick Check answers as soon as possible!
This week in math we learned how to divide fractions. Luckily it's as easy as remembering a cool radio station name.
Here's how it works:
Keep the first fraction the same.
Change the division sign to a multiplication sign.
Flip the second fraction.
This 2 minute movie will show how it's done:
Now, when you divide fractions by whole numbers or vice versa, just remember to put the whole number over 1 to easily change it into a fraction. You have to do this to help with the Flip and Multiply steps.
If the whole number comes second in the equation, you'll have to do what we at KCFM like to call The Whole Number Flip.
It's the latest craze.
For a quick review of this concept, watch the 2 minute video below.
There is discipline in A
Soldier you can see it when he walks, There
is honor in A Soldier you hear it when he talks. There
is courage in A Soldier you can see it in his eyes, There
is loyalty in A Soldier that he will not compromise. There
is something in A Soldier that makes him stand apart, There
is strength in A Soldier that beats from his heart. A
Soldier isn't a title any man can be hired to do, A
Soldier is the soul of that man buried deep inside of you. A
Soldier's job isn't finished after an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week, A
Soldier is always A Soldier even while he sleeps. A
Soldier serves his country first and his life is left behind, A
Soldier has to sacrifice what comes first in a civilian's mind. If you
are civilian - I am saying this to you..... next
time you see A Soldier remember what they do. A
Soldier is the reason our land is 'Home of the free', A
Soldier is the one that is brave protecting you and me. If you
are A Soldier - I am saying this to you..... Thank God
for EVERY SOLDIER Thank God for what YOU do!
