Mrs. Bothers' classes finished the Math Inventory today. See the next post below for more details!!
Mrs. Katz's classes reviewed multiplying and dividing decimals.
Mrs. Leach's classes began the Math Inventory today.
Mrs. Ledesma's classes reviewed adding and subtracting decimals.
Today, we are finishing the Math Inventory. We will take this again mid-year and at the end of the year to assess growth!
When you finish, complete the following:
1) Open to MSG page 28 and fill in the guided notes below:
Steps to Multiplying Decimals:
1) Multiply. (You do NOT need to line up the decimals!!)
2) Count the number of places behind the decimal in your problem.
Your product must have the same number of places behind the
2) Complete these 7 basic practice problems OR 4 harder practice problems. THERE ARE VIDEOS AND HELPFUL HINTS FOR EACH PROBLEM, SO USE THEM!! Copy the problems and show your work on MSG page 29.
3) Complete MSG page 28 (tonight's HW). I will post these answers this evening for you to check, but remember ALL WORK MUST BE SHOWN!
Homework: MSG page 28; Quiz corrections due tomorrow; study for tomorrow's quiz on decimal division and multiplication
Students continued practicing dividing decimals today. Overall, we're doing a great job with division, but we need to work on lining up the numbers correctly in the quotient (pay attention to place value!). Also, remember to estimate to check whether your answer is reasonable!
All classes will be taking the Math Inventory over the next two weeks. This is used to assess strengths and areas of need. We will take it again mid-year, and again at the end of the year to see growth. Bothers and Leach are taking the MI this week, and Ledesma and Katz will take it next week.
Bothers: MSG p. 27 (see first video below); Quiz corrections due Friday

Katz ALL CLASSES: You may turn in quiz corrections tomorrow for partial credit. All work must be on a separate sheet of paper with your name, the date and your period to get credit. For definitions, you must write the definition and complete a division frame putting the pieces in the correct place for credit.
Leach: Quiz corrections due Friday
Ledesma: Long division worksheet & Dividing Decimals WS (even problems only)
Today, students took a quiz to assess mastery of long division! Next week, we will move on to division of decimals, and then adding, subtracting, and multiplying decimals.
Bothers: No HW
Katz: Division practice
Leach: Continue to review and study your multiplication facts. Games on www.mathplayground.com
Ledesma: Division worksheet (show work on separate sheet of paper)
Congrats to these students for scoring an A on the long division quiz!
Bothers: Ariyanna, Ki'riyanna, Jeremiah, Jayda, Austin, Tiana, Ava, Destiny, Tolu, Zach, Jaydyn, Eddie, Rebecca, Judah, Alex, Alecia, Abbey, Belinda, Jada, Vincent, Jordyn, Nathan, Joe, Maddie, and Max!
Katz: stay tuned!
Leach: stay tuned!
Ledesma: stay tuned!
Today, students continued practicing long division. We focused on word problems, writing remainders as fractions, and interpreting remainders. Tomorrow, students will take a quiz on long division!
Bothers: Finish ANY 3 pages of the long division packet (see below)
Katz: Long division worksheet #1-15 (see below)
Leach: Long Division Quiz tomorrow (study MSG pages 8-21) Continue to review multiplication facts on Agenda Chart page R-9 and play games at www.mathplayground.com
Ledesma: MSG page 23
Today, students continued to practice dividing multi-digit numbers. Students learned to write a remainder as a fraction and a decimal, and they also learned to interpret remainders.
Bothers: MSG page 21
Katz: MSG page 19
Leach: Long Division Practice Sheet - work the first 6 problems. Do all for extra credit! Keep studying your multiplication facts and playing multiplication games on www.mathplayground.com
