Monday, October 27, 2014  RP.3.  I can find missing values in a proportion.
Bell Work  Review dividing fractions using fraction models.
Classwork
(1) Work returned and specific items reviewed: What happened at Bizarre Middle School? and Problem Solving: Unit Rate Quiz.
(2) Reviewed what a proportion was using the graphic organizer made in class before the break. Lesson today involved finding missing values of a proportion using crossproducts. Students checked their solutions by seeing if the value of the variable made the fraction equivalent to the other.
(3) Completed problems 15 of "Solving Proportions".

Homework  Use crossproducts to solve for the missing values in the proportions #610. Study faction models  quiz this Friday, October 31, 2014. Ratio, rate, proportion test scheduled for Wednesday, October 29th. Students will review for the test tomorrow in class after more support with proportions.
Tuesday  October 28, 2014  RP.3.  I can solve missing values of a proportion using crossproducts.
Bell Work  Review dividing fractions using fraction models. Classwork from yesterday and homework was checked for completion.
Classwork
(1) Use crossproducts to solve missing values of the following proportions: 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17. The value of the variable can be a decimal or fraction. This is unlike your experience yesterday where the relationship between the ratios were whole numbers. Don't forget to check the value of the variable. If you have the right value, the ratios will be equal. There are several ways to check. When you simplify each ratio, they should be equal. You can rename each ratio as a decimal to see if they are equal. Just remember that the crossproducts of a proportion are always equal.

Thursday, October 30, 2014  RP.3c  I can rename rationals in their other forms  fraction, decimal, and percent.
Bell Work  Review dividing fractions using fraction models.
Classwork
(1) Reviewed and shared answers for Set A  C  Fraction, Decimal, Percent Equivalents.
(2) Guided practice and notes over Set D for problems 4, 5, 6 and 9 (for some classes).
(1) Reviewed and shared answers for Set A  C  Fraction, Decimal, Percent Equivalents.
(2) Guided practice and notes over Set D for problems 4, 5, 6 and 9 (for some classes).
Homework  Complete the chart for Set D (45 points). Show organized work for problems 4, 5, 6, 9, and 13 (55 points). The document is attached above under Wednesday's blog.
Friday, October 31, 2014  NS.1  I can divide fractions and use fraction models to represent my solution. RP.3c  I can rename a fraction as a decimal and percent. I can find the percent of a given number.
Bell Work  Review dividing fractions using fraction models. #912 will be graded for accuracy. Fraction, Decimal, Percent Equivalents, Sets AD and organized work for #4, 5, 6, 9, and 13 of Set D, were collected at the beginning of class and will be graded for accuracy.
Classwork
(1) Check solutions to "Using Unit Prices."
(1) Check solutions to "Using Unit Prices."
(2) Complete an item analysis for Unit 2 Test A. Create ratios for correct responses to total questions for each of the three tested concepts  ratio, rate, and proportion, and for the total test questions. Use a calculator to rename the ratio as a decimal and then to a percent. Students had a quick conference with me over their item analysis and received a participation grade for their ratio to percent conversions. Item analysis and test are to be kept in their foldables notebook and used to help prepare for test next Friday which will be comprehensive of Unit 2.
3) Complete 3 pockets for "Solving Proportions," "Equivalent Rationals (Sets AD)," and "Percent of a Number."
Make 4 halves from 2 sheets of paper. 3 for pockets.
In this pocket, keep (1) Solving Proportion notes from Monday, October 27th, (2) Unit Rate Practice, (3) Unit 2 Test A and item analysis.

Take the 4th half, make a "hot dog" fold, and divide.
In this pocket, keep Set AD after it is returned to you.

Take one of the 2 strips and divide to use for Percent of a Number as seen below.
This pocket will be for Monday's lesson and activity.

Homework  None! Have a wonderful weekend! Catch up on any notes you missed. Make sure you completed your renaming rationals foldable.
