## Monday, October 14, 2014 - Columbus Day - No school for students.

## Tuesday, October 15, 2014 - RP.1-3 - I can use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world mathematical problems.

**Bell Work**- Review GCF/LCM. Activate ratio and rate. Make groups of 1 teacher to 11 students to see that 2 groups of this ratio equals 2 teachers to 22 students. Use a tape diagram to show the relationship between 5 gallons to $10. Each gallon is $2.

**Classwork**

(1) Set up cover page and vocabulary for new unit in foldables notebook.

**Classwork**

(2) Complete foldable notes for ratio, rate, and proportion.

**Classwork**

(3) Guided practice for applying unit rate to find the better deal.

## Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - RP.1-3 - I can use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world mathematical problems. Modified schedule due to Mock Writing Test.

**Bell Work**- Review GCF, LCM, ratios and rates.

**Classwork**

**- In groups, students shared and/or discussed results from their homework task, "Problem Solving: Unit Rate Practice." Class discussed any questions unanswered by the group. 2nd period previewed tomorrow's lesson with the story, "What's Faster Than a Speeding Cheetah?"**

__1st and 2nd period__**- Guided practice was given using tape models and equivalent ratios to answer homework questions 1-5. Students shared written solutions for these problems. Finish #6-10 for homework.**

**Homework**- All classes, for each problem of "Problem Solving: Unit Rate Practice," include (1) work that supports each solution, (2) complete sentences for all solutions, and (3) correct solutions. This task is posted in Tuesday's blog. Don't forget to study vocabulary for number system and do drills with "Fraction Model Madness."

## Thursday, October 16, 2014 - RP.1-3 - I can use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world mathematical problems.

**Bell Work**- Apply ratios.

**Classwork**

**- Used their work, "Problem Solving: Unit Practice #1-10", to complete a short quiz over rates. Fruit Loops Task sheet was graded and returned.**

__All classes__**: "What's Faster Than a Speeding Cheetah?" was read to the class. Students used calculators to find how long it would take certain animals, contraptions and objects to reach the moon starting from earth. Students did not have to show the division algorithm, but for each problem, were required to set up a proportion (two equal ratios) and record the expressions used to arrive at their solutions. They worked on converting hours to more simplified, measurable terms. For example, it would take an ostrich 5,311 hours to reach the moon, which can be converted to 221 days or 7 1/3 months.**

__1st, 2nd and 4th periods__**: Finished the foldable notes for ratio, rate, and proportion, and added it to their notebook. They also prepped their notebook for new vocabulary. See Tuesday's blog for pictures and more information.**

__3rd and 4th Period__**Homework**- 1st, 2nd and 4th period: Complete "What's Faster Than a Speeding Cheetah?". All classes, study vocabulary and Fraction Model Madness.

## Friday, October 17, 2014 - RP.1-3 - I can use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world mathematical problems.

**Bell Work**- Apply ratios, rates, and percents. Bell Work was collected.

**Classwork**

(1) Review work for "What's Faster Than a Speeding Cheetah?".

(2) Speed test over multiplication facts. Six minutes to answer 121 facts, approximately 3 seconds per fact.

(3) Complete "Using Unit Prices" with a partner of your choice. Work was turned in for grading.

**Homework**- None! Have a wonderful fall break!!! But if you find a moment where you are missing school and feel the urge to study, you could study your vocabulary and make fraction model matches.
