Students need to prepare for the following concepts:
Writing numbers - standard form, expanded form, scientific notation, words
Estimating and Rounding
Factoring - factor trees
Primes and Composites - prime factorization
GCF and LCM
In preparation for the test, students are asked to create 50 questions on the topics above, then answer them, and mark them for feedback
JumpMath workbooks and khanacademy.org are excellent resources for students to gather their questions - no need to reinvent the wheel.
It is critical students mark their questions to get feedback.
Tutorial will be held on Thursday this week in preparation for the test
Students were asked to keep track of the candy they got for Halloween so we could use the data in Math class. Today, we organized the candy data into categories. Students then were given the following task:
1) Create a data table including fraction, decimal, %, degrees of a circle - this table should be completed on graph paper. Calculations for the degrees of a circle are to be done on the back side of the paper. Reminder, all decimals = 1.0, all % = 100% when added together, and all degrees = 360 when added together. In order to find the fractions, you will need a total number of candy pieces as the denominator and the totals from each category as the numerator.
2) Create a bar graph - remember to follow graphing rules
3) Create a circle graph - remember to follow graphing rules and rules specific to only circles
4) Complete the memorable fractions worksheet - do at least five examples
Students need to read chapter 2, found in the classroom documents section under Science, and fill in the appropriate answers
