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


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


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.


  • 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".
