Friday, September 15th

These are the rules we've covered so far...

Should have finished all homework in class as I didn't give you a lot.  Play a game of crib, a game of cards, a brainbasher, a logic puzzle, or some other math/solving style game this weekend :)

Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying and Dividing Rational Numbers

  • When adding and subtracting, you need to get a common denominator, then + or - numerators
  • Always look to see if you need to reduce your fraction

  • When multiplying, multiply numerators and denominators
  • Always look to see if you need to reduce your fraction
  • If you can reduce the fractions BEFORE multiplying, it helps make your answer easier to reduce

  • When dividing, take the reciprocal of the second fraction and then multiply (flip and multiply)
  • Always look to see if you need to reduce your fraction
HOMEWORK:  Both sides of the white sheet ( adding, subtracting and dividing) and either side of the green sheet (multiplying)

Monday, Sept 11

Today we reviewed working with Rational Numbers (aka fractions)

  • a rational number can be written in form a/b, where a and b are integers and b cannot be 0
Multiplying or Dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number does NOT change the number because you are really multiplying by 1.
When putting rational numbers in order either
  • find a common denominator first and compare numerators
  • put into decimal form first

HOMEWORK:  PG 11/12 # 1,2,3,4,13,16,17

Today we worked on solving puzzles and getting our brains working.  We learned how to do two different Japanese logic puzzles:

We used the iPad's to go to the logic puzzles section of brainbashers to try more puzzles.  If you'd like to try more, here is the link

Homework:  You need to bring in a puzzles, math quote, math joke etc to put on your square in our Math Quilt. :)

Everything below here is from my Math 10 class last year...June 8

I don't know why I'm writing here, because you've all told me you don't use the Blog, but just in case there is a random Math 10 student looking for some info (or more likely, a parent looking to see if you're telling the truth ;), here's the plan:

Thursday, June 8 - Review everything about Linear graphs (3 packages)
Friday, June 9 - Review functions
Monday, June 12 - Review Systems of equations
Tuesday, June 13 - Review Factoring
Wednesday, June 14 - Review Exponents
Thursday, June 15 - Review Radicals
Friday, June 16 - Review Trig and any other areas we need to focus on
Monday, June 19 - Short "mock", "practice", final
Thursday, June 22 - Go over "mock", "practice" final and final prep
Friday, June 23 - Woo Hoo - The Final :)

The packages for review will be shared on your Office 365 account in the Shared With You section.

Almost summer!
