Math-You will complete 2 number computation review sheets. You may print them or copy answers on notebook paper. On the first one, titled "Word Problems", you need to set up the problems and show ALL work. You may check with a calculator, but you need to set it up and solve it on your own first! Try to be a smart neat and organized with your work as possible.
Geography- Since we have been studying geographic regions of the contiguous United States, you will be reading about the Southeast and answering a set of comprehension questions. You may print it out or copy on notebook paper.
Math-Today's work is a review of fractions and mixed numbers. Be sure to read the directions for each question. Word clues will tell you what problem to set up and solve. For example, total=sum, how much further=subtract, 1/2 the distance=multiply by 1/2, etc.
Also, because addition is COMMUTATIVE, we can change the order we add the distances shown in the chart. When you are adding mixed numbers, it may be quicker for you to add all the whole numbers first, and then add the fractional parts. Be sure to use the LEAST COMMON DENOMINATOR ( find the least common multiple). You cannot add or subtract fractions with unlike denominators.
Show all your work! You may check your math with a calculator and go back and revise, but these are skills you need to be able to do proficiently without a calculator.
Math-There are two assignments for math today. The first is a review of perimeter of irregular shapes. Perimeter is the sum of ALL sides of a polygon. Each figure on the worksheet is missing one or two side lengths. You MUST find those first, before trying to calculate perimeter.
The other is a mixed review of computation skills. You can print out the sheets or they can be done on notebook paper. You can use a calculator, but you must show your work. Be sure to number your paper and SHOW ALL WORK!
Geography-Map skills activity. You can print out or copy onto notebook paper. Be sure to number paper and recreate chart.
Math: Today's assignment is a review of combining like terms and simplifying algebraic expressions. Review and complete the Reteaching 3-7 worksheet first, then complete the matching worksheet. There are TWO worksheets. You need to complete them in the order they appear on here. You can print or copy onto notebook paper.
Geography: The focus of today's NTI work is Sumerian advancements in transportation and writing. Read the summary and answer the 4 questions on notebook paper. Answers should be in restated, written in paragraph form, use evidence and vocabulary from the text, and utilize proper grammar and writing mechanics.
Email me me at Suzanne.email@example.com if you have questions about either assignment.
Math-Today's assignment is a review of algebraic function tables. You will be completing an input-output table and also identifying the correct rule for a function table (remember, input-output tables and function tables are the same thing!). You can print or write answers on notebook paper. You DON'T have to draw the tables, just write the question number and correct answer.
Math-Please complete all the even numbers on the mixed review assignment used on Tuesday Jan 16. As before, SHOW ALL WORK on a proof sheet. All of these questions need to be done without using a calculator. Of course, after you finish, you can check answers with a calculator. But you need to practice solving them on your own first! Contact me through email if you have questions. It is posted below so you don't have to scroll down to the previous post.
Geography-This is a review of the "5 Themes of Geography" we studied at the beginning of the year. Please read the summary and answer the questions. You can print or write on notebook paper.
MATH: The math assignment shown below is a mixed review of content we have covered all year. You can print it out if you like, or copy answers on notebook paper. Show work for each question on a proof sheet! Because you will be working each problem out and solving BEFORE choosing an answer, you only need to complete the ODD numbers for today's work. If you get stuck, star the problem and move on. You can come back and do a quick internet search to help find videos or resources for that topic ( ex: you might search " adding fractions with different denominators" if you need help with #8).
GEOGRAPHY: the geography assignment is an introduction to Ancient Mesopotamia. When we complete our Culture & Geography unit, we will begin studying about the earliest civilizations. You can print out the reading passage sand questions or read the article on here and answer on notebook paper.
Todays NTI assignment is to complete Guided Problem Solving 5.3 in your workbook, page 200. You may print or copy on notebook paper if you don't have your blue math workbook. Use your notes from yesterday ( Lesson 5.3) to help you solve the real world problem and explain/check your work.
You also need need to complete Days 55-56 of our Math Daily Work. You should have this paper at home, but if not, print or copy on notebook paper and staple when we return. Be sure to show all work.
Your NTI for Geography focuses on religion as a major element of culture. Watch the video below and answer the following questions on notebook paper.
1) what are some differences you notice about the daily
Iives and living conditions of the kids.
2) note differences in clothing, food, etc.
3) what are some rituals performed by each child and their family as they worship?
4) Is it obvious to you what religion each child belongs to? What led you to your conclusions?
Your NTI assignment for math comes from Lesson 5-3 in our workbooks. We've been studying how to find, apply, and compare unit rates. When we divide to find unit rates, we are actually writing an equivalent ratio! Today, you will use a multiplication table, double number lines, and tape diagrams to help write other equivalent ratios.
Go to page 54-55 in your math workbook and work through Lesson 5-3 on equivalent ratios. Be sure to look at the learning target! I have included the definition for equivalent ratios below so you can get started. I have also linked some helpful videos to watch as you work. After working through examples 1-3, complete the Quick Check for each.
*if you left your workbook at school, you can print the pages below. Or copy on notebook paper and staple into your workbook when we return.
DLT: we will use equivalent ratios and rates to solve real world and mathematical problems.
Equivalent Ratios- similar to equivalent fractions, they express the same relationship between two numbers. example: 5/10 is equal to 1/2
This is it! You are officially a MIDDLE SCHOOLER! New building, new schedule, and new teachers!
I hope each of you has had a restful and FUN summer. It always goes by too quickly, but there is something exciting about the start of a new school year. Getting all those supplies in order, new school clothes, and the anticipation of DAY ONE!
I hope I have answered a lot of questions you may have on the resources provided at Tiger Tip-Off. The following papers were available at Tiger Tip-Off: Syllabus for Math & Geography, Supply List, and Communications Notice.
If you weren't able to make it to Tiger Tip-Off or need another copy, those will be available once we return to school August 3. I have also linked them below.
Please take the time to join the REMIND group, as this will be where announcements, assignment reminders, etc. will be made. Both parents and students are encouraged to join. Instructions are on the Communications Notice.
My email is on the school website should you have any additional questions! Enjoy the rest of your summer break!
