Today students took a brief quiz over GCF and LCM. Then, they glued in a "Decimals foldable" into their notebook.
My field trip people are to turn their homework in first thing in the morning. Many turned it in today.
As for the 5 that will be in class tomorrow....homework is due tomorrow!

Today we went over and checked our Word problems sheet in class. Then, students learned how to illustrate the sum of two numbers through GCF and the distributive property.
Tomorrow we'll have a brief 10 question quiz over GCF, LCM, and the distributive property notes.

Today we took about 3 minutes to work on tonight's homework assignment. A few people still have not turned in their GCF/LCM practice paper from Friday. It was officially late today!
Then, we finished our last "Real World Applications" problem from yesterday. Afterwards, students were able to get with a partner to complete the word problem practice over GCF and LCM. It's a tough one. Many did not finish and will need to complete the rest of this at home tonight. See a picture of the paper below.
Tomorrow, we'll go over how to use GCF and the distributive property together.

Today students received their very first weekly homework sheet. We went over how to complete it and how to use our class time wisely.
Then, students worked through several GCF/LCM Real World Applications. We have one more example to finish tomorrow. Then, we'll practice what we've learned.

Today students finished notes over LCM. Then, we completed the front of the handout from Wednesday over GCF. Then, students were given the remainder of class to complete the back side of the handout over LCM. There were a few who did not finish...I'll give about 10 minutes of class time on Monday to finish up.
Have a great weekend!

Today we continued learning how to find GCF through the use of the Ladder method. We added 2 more examples to our notebook on page 4. Then, students were given 10 minutes of class time to work through some GCF practice problems. They need to have 8 of the GCF problems completed by the start of class tomorrow. We'll finish the remainder of the paper in class tomorrow.
Then, we moved on to LCM. After we watched the video posted to the side students began notes over LCM. We'll finish these tomorrow as well. 

Wednesday, August 9th
Today students completed their first day of Math warmups!! They complete these in the composition book that is housed in the math classroom. A warmup is a problem or series of problems students solve as they enter the class. These help students get focused on math!
Then, we set up our Math notebooks! We made the first page of our notebooks the "Table of Contents". Then, we began our taking notes on page 3. Students learned how to find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) using two different methods. The first method is a simple "list method"...many may know this as the "rainbow method". Then, they learned my favorite method, the "Ladder method". We'll continue practicing with both of these methods tomorrow and learn how to find the Least Common Multiple.
