Today we reviewed Thursday night's column of homework problems. Then, students took notes over Long Division. Yesterday, they were able to watch the videos posted below, but ran out of time to take notes. Many students struggled with dividing in this class. Please encourage your child to review the videos posted below at home for additional help.

Tuesday, August 21st
5th Period:
Today students reviewed Tuesday night's column of homework problems. Take note on #1...it should say, "Which of the following is a factor of 16?". I have no clue why I accidentally deleted the words?! Then, we quickly reviewed subtracting across zeros from yesterday. Afterwards, students worked with a partner or in a small group of 3 to find the sum or difference of decimals. Then, we did two adding/subtracting decimal word problems together in class.

Thursday, August 16th
5th Period:
Today students reviewed Thursday night's column of homework problems. The weekly sheet is due in class tomorrow. Then, we reviewed LCM from yesterday by working through a practice sheet and then checking together in class. Afterwards, students worked with a partner on GCF and LCM problems interchangeably. Mr. Forney and I quickly learned that students need some extra practice on these. We'll continue working with these tomorrow. 
6th & 7th Periods:
Today students reviewed Thursday night's column of homework problems. Weekly sheet is due tomorrow!!! Then, students worked through word problems with a partner and turned them in. 
Wednesday, August 15th

Today students reviewed Wednesday night's column of homework problems with Mr. Forney. Then, we reviewed students understanding of multiples. Afterwards, students took notes over Multiples and LCM. Then, students completed the back page of the packet from the beginning of the week over Multiples and turned it in. 
6th & 7th Period:
Today students reviewed Wednesday night's column of homework problems. Then, we learned how to solve GCF/LCM real world applications through problems on an interactive flipchart. 
Tuesday, August 14th
5th Period:
Today students reviewed Tuesday night's column of homework problems with Mr. Forney. Then, we checked the Factor problems that were additional homework last night. Afterwards, students learned a new method of finding the GCF called the Ladder Method. 
Ladder Method

6th & 7th Periods:
Today students reviewed Tuesday night's column of homework problems. Then, we finished our LCM notes from yesterday. Afterwards, students worked with a partner to complete a practice paper over Multiples and LCM. 
Monday, August 13th
5th Period:
Today students received their weekly homework sheet and we reviewed Monday night's column together. Then, We took notes over finding the Greatest Common Factor (GCF). Afterwards, students continued to work through their factor sheet from Friday. Those who did not finish in class must finish for additional homework tonight. 
6th & 7th Periods:
Today students received their weekly homework sheet and we reviewed Monday night's column of problems. Then, we quickly reviewed GCF from Friday. Afterwards, students began notes over LCM. We didn't quite finish, so we'll finish tomorrow. 
Friday, August 10th
5th Period:
Today students took notes over Factors & Multiples. Then, they worked with a partner on a practice sheet where they listed out factors. 
6th & 7th Period:
Today students took notes over Greatest Common Factor. They learned a new method called the Ladder Method. This method makes finding the GCF and the LCM so much easier. After notes, students worked independently or with a partner (their choice) on a Factors & GCF practice paper. 
Thursday, August 9th
5th Period:
Today we quickly reviewed tonight's column of homework. Then, students finished reviewing the location of decimals on a number line. Afterwards, they completed an in class practice sheet over place value, rounding, & decimal comparisons. Then, we watched a quick Flocabulary video over Factors.

Today we finished going over the Math Procedures Powerpoint from yesterday. Then, we reviewed Monday and Tuesday night's column of Homework problems. Afterwards, students set up their Math Notebooks for class. MANY MANY students DID NOT have their Composition books. If you purchased your child one and they left it at home, please consider donating it to the class supply. We only got to set up our Table of Contents pages today. 
First few days of school
On the first day of school we'll be receiving all of our First Day of School paperwork to go home along with our new AGENDAS! In each class students will be reading sections of the Agenda as well as learning all about the process of 6th grade.
