Tuesday, October 7, 2014  I can divide with fractions and decimals.
Bell Work  Finish vocabulary for the number system in your foldables notebook.
Classwork
(1) Create a pocket book for "Fraction Model Madness  Set 1." Use this game to help you (1) review how to draw fraction models, (2) write expressions to represent these models, and (3) translate expressions and models. Students were given: (1) a set of 10 fraction model cards, (2) a set of 10 expressions, (3) a set of 10 translations for expressions, and (4) a set of 10 translations for solutions.

Cut outs: (1) ten fraction models, (2) ten expression cards, (3) twenty translation cards. Label your pockets in case you want to make your game easier by keeping the sets separated. Set 2 will be given to you tomorrow for you to make or take home to make.

Use the "hot dog" fold to create pockets. Then, use the "hamburger" fold to create the book. Unfold your paper and put glue on the highlighted places below. Fold your paper back up. Voila! You have made a pocket book. Glue down one side into p. 27 of your foldables notebook adding a paper clip. One side of the paper clip will be glued down into your notebook, the other side will be exposed to help keep your book closed, so that your cards don't fall out.
Paper clip your set and place it diagonally into your pocket. This way, when you close your book and use the first clip to secure it, your cards will have a much harder time finding its way to the floor.

Classwork (continued)
(2) Reassess dividing with decimals. Students had a chance to improve their original quiz grade with this assessment and were given immediate feedback over their work. We will reassess multiplying with decimals tomorrow.
