**The Final Exam is scheduled for Wednesday, October 9th.**The study guide was given today and worked on in class. Problems unfinished should be completed for homework. "Answer, Find and Shade - Basic Operations with Decimals" and "Graphitti" was also given today to be worked on after finishing the study guide. Organized work for "Answer, Find and Shade" should be stapled to the back of this document, which is not due until next Friday, October 18th.

Graded Bell Work from last week was returned and falls in the 20% category. To earn all 15 points, students must show complete, correct work. When students redo work, it is important that they highlight correct work and mark out previous work that is incorrect. Work should include labels, descriptions, units of measurements, the original problem or some form of set up, sometimes formulas, and sometimes explanations. Time was given in class to correct and/or add to work. Points were deducted if work was not organized as instructed or name was missing from the 1st page.

**Graded Decimal Test was returned and should be signed by a parent by Thursday, October 10th.**Discussion of points and solutions for each question began in class today after 40 minutes was given to complete the study guide. We will finish discussing the last few questions tomorrow.

The first Powerpoint is what we started with. The second includes demonstrations of different students and how they solved each problem. I checked for completed study guides and signed Decimal Tests. I will check again for these two items tomorrow. Before going over the study guide, we examined the remaining questions from the Decimal Test. Multi-step problems are challenging, but I know in time, the students can think through them. Interpreting the problem, understanding what you are solving for, and knowing when to add, subtract, multiply and divide are key elements we will continue to improve.

## Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - Quarter 1 Final Exam

The final exam involves 20 questions involving the following concepts from this quarter: operations with decimals, GCF, LCM, Distributive Property, reciprocals, dividing with fractions, ratios, unit rate, and proportional relationships. After the exam, students worked on "Answer, Find and Shade - Basic Operations with Decimals" and "Graphitti." Students were reminded to staple organized work to the back of the worksheet. Students who finish these two assignments can begin working on "Unit Rate Practice," which is on the back of Lesson 7-2 and posted below.
