## Monday, March 31, 2014 - Rationals on a Number Line; Comparing and Ordering Rationals

**Bell Work**- Complete problems 1-5. Bell work for last week, March 24th to 28th, was checked.

**Classwork**- After bell work, students completed

**"Bell Work Quiz 2: March 24th - 28th,"**using their bell work from last week. Students earned 50 points for having their bell work and earned the remaining 50 points by answering 5 questions from the Quiz 2 correctly. During this time, Unit 6 Test - Statistics and Bell Work Quiz 1 were returned and reviewed.

After the quiz, students completed

**"Rational Numbers Notes and Practice."**We skipped problem B and C, two rational mazes, and focused on locating and graphing positive and negative rationals on a number line. Students saw as digits of negative numbers increased, the value decreased (got further away from zero). This is the opposite of what happens with positive numbers - as digits of positive numbers increase, the value also increases. We also reviewed absolute value as being the distance a number is from zero and not the opposite of a number. Absolute Value is ALWAYS POSITIVE.

**"Comparing and Ordering Rational Numbers."**We have ordered rationals during bell work for the past two weeks, so these algorithms are familiar. We've just never written the steps out. 2014.3.31_comparing_and_ordering_rationals.pptx | |
