MS Math – Sept 27 – Oct 1

6th Grade Math – Mrs. Evans

This week we will be investigating DECIMALS! We will begin with a review of how we add and subtract decimals (line up the place values) and then we will learn to multiply and divide them.  Here is a video that reviews all that we will work on this week.  

Math Grade Math – Mrs. Evans and Mrs. VonFeldt

This week we will continue to learn about using integers as we learn to multiply and divide positive and negative integers.  We will practice modeling and establish some great rules that apply to multiplying and dividing integers.  Here is a summary of the rules we use when multiplying and dividing integers:

8th Grade Math – Mrs. Ernest

This week 8th graders will be learning to solve one and two step algebraic expressions using our rules for adding, subtracting, dividing, and multiplying rational numbers (decimals and fractions). Students will need to be proficient with the skills we have been learning so far this year. If your student is feeling confused by the concepts we’ve covered so far, make sure they practice with these IXL activities! We will cover Chapter 1-5, 1-6 and part of 1-7 to wrap up this unit this week. Next week we will have a unit test on all topics covered this year so far!

Algebra – Mrs. VonFeldt

This week we are learning about functions. A function is a relationship that consists of a set of inputs, called the domain, and a set of outputs, called the range. Each input can be paired with only one output. We will spend time looking at different representations of functions such as verbal models, tables, graphs and equations. This will bring us to the end of Chapter 1. There will be a test on Friday. The following video is a good review of functions and how to name them:
