Today we reviewed Thursday night's column of homework problems and I answered any questions students had over any of the other days. Weekly sheet is due tomorrow.
Then, students turned in their Decimal Operations practice sheet they had to complete for additional homework last night.
Then, students completed the Long division problems we glued into our notebooks from yesterday.

Wednesday, August 15th
Today we reviewed Wednesday night's column of homework problems over Long division. Then, we watched the Math Antics video located to the right of the screen. Next, we took notes over Long division. Students remembered the 5 simple steps from elementary school. However, we needed to add in how to turn the remainder into a fraction and how to add a decimal and a zero to keep going. We worked 4 examples out together in our notebooks. Then, students glued in 9 additional examples on the back of today's notes page. We'll complete the 9 additional examples in class tomorrow.
Additional Homework: Finish the Decimal Practice paper from yesterday. It's due tomorrow. 

Tuesday, August 14th
Today we quickly reviewed Tuesday night's column of homework problems. Then, we finished notes in our Decimal foldable. Afterwards, students received a practice sheet over finding the sum and difference of decimals. The last two problems on the sheet are word problems. In 1st period, we didn't finish and will check over tomorrow.
Monday, August 13th
Today students received their weekly homework sheet. Then, we finished our GCF/LCM Real world applications with partners. After working on it with partners we went over it and students checked their answers. Then, we pasted it into the next page of our notebooks.
Then, students glued in a decimal foldable. Tomorrow we'll complete our foldable and work on Adding, Subtracting, and Multiplying decimals.

Today we checked our weekly homework sheet and turned it in. Then, we finished notes over Distributing and GCF. Afterwards, we pulled the sheet from yesterday where we completed #115 back out and worked through the word problems together. Then, students used their knowledge of the word problems we completed together to work with a partner on a series of real life applications that used GCF and LCM.
We'll finish the real life applications on Monday and check them together. They'll get glued into our notebooks after we check over them.

Today we finished going over our weekly homework sheet. The weekly sheet is DUE TOMORROW!!!
Then, we finished notes over LCM. Afterwards, students had 12 minutes of class time to complete #115 on a LCM practice sheet. Those who did not finish #115 need to finish tonight. Next, students began notes over The Distributive Property & GCF. This is where we use the distributive property in combination with factoring to rewrite the sum of two numbers. This concept can be a bit complex at first, but students should catch on quickly. We'll finish up the steps tomorrow and then they'll get to work with a partner on some real life applications. 

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018
Today we quickly went over Wednesday night's problems on the weekly sheet. Then, we finished our notes over GCF from yesterday. Students learned a new way to find GCF and it's called the Ladder Method.
After we finished notes, students had 10 minutes to work on a practice sheet over factors and GCF. Many finished in class and turned it in to the class tray. Those who did not finish must finish for additional homework tonight. It's due tomorrow. Then, we moved on to LCM. We barely got to hit on the concept of LCM before the bell. We'll finish up with multiples and LCM tomorrow and talk about using the Distributive property with factors and multiples. 

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018
Today we quickly finished up the Class slide show from yesterday. Students also had a chance to finish up the Monday night homework column and work on Tuesday night's homework column. Remember, the weekly sheet isn't due til Friday.
Next, students set up their Spiral Notebook. We created a Table of Contents page and they had 3 minutes to number as many pages as possible. Then, we reviewed Factors and how to find the Greatest Common Factor by using the list method, or rainbow method. Tomorrow, they'll learn how to use the Ladder Method (a lifesaver). 

What do I need to know to get started??
Welcome to 6th Grade Advanced Mathematics! Listed below you'll find the class syllabus along with a google slides presentation about math class in general. The syllabus contains EVERYTHING you need to know in order to be successful in Advanced Math. The presentation is more of a general overview of the math class and procedures.
