Classwork:  We practiced multi-digit multiplication using the "Old-school" algorithm method.

Turned-in:   

  • Periods 1,2,5 -   nothing
  • Period 6 - Turned in pages 41-42 from the Unit 1 packet.

Homework:  

Students should currently be working on one of 7 different multiplication practice worksheets, depending on demonstrated proficiency. They could have:

  • M-1 : (the grid-paper worksheet)
  • AW-117 : ...with 2-digit numbers, first problem is (63 x 19)
  • AW-121 : ...with 3-digit numbers, first problem is (542 x 183)
  • Skill 15 : ...multiplication with re-naming
  • Skill 16 : ...multipication with 2-digit numbers
  • Basketball (pg.46)
  • Delicate Operation (pg.47) -done as a group with others
  •  
    • Students should devote approximately 20-30 minutes of "good effort" to working on reviewing their multiplication skills for the upcoming Quiz on Monday, working on the review worksheet they have.
    • Students do not have to work beyond a 30-minute effort.... if it is taking longer than that, they should stop, and come in with it partially finished.
    • If the print is too small on the worksheet to do easily, students should RE-COPY the problems onto either lined-paper or grid-paper to solve. Any extra paper should have the student's name on it, and should be stapled to the original worksheet. Please take special care to do your work NEATLY.

Notes: 

  • QUIZ on MONDAY, (Oct 15)
  •  
  • Students who scored less than 70% on Quiz #1 (a score of 11 or lower) will also have the opportunity to re-take the quiz, if they so choose. Quiz #1 RE-TAKES will take place on Monday or Tuesday (Oct 15-16), but students will have to come in outside of math class to do so. Available times for re-takes are: (1) before school at 7:30am, (2) during lunch/recess, (3) after school on Tuesday, or (4) during students' BEST class [But ONLY with the permission of their BEST teacher]. Before students re-take this quiz, they should be sure to study and practice working with the concepts of "factors" and "multiples".
