**were returned. Students were given feedback on their rubric and can redo their projects by Friday, September 19th for full credit. The project requirements were re-emphasized and shown through examples. Completed, well executed projects are posted in the room for additional help. Please come during tutoring for help.**

__Shopping Projects__(2) Students are to complete

**of their foldables notebook by Friday, September 19th. Be creative in demonstrating all you have learned - prime factorization, finding the GCF, using GCF to rewrite expressions using the distributive property, using GCF to find the LCM. Create a problem involving factors for your peers to solve, etc.**

__"Summarizing Factors" on p.21__(3)

**on finding the LCM were placed on p.22 and p.23 of the foldables notebook. We will finish this on Tuesday.**

## Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - NS.4. I can apply common factors and common multiples to real-life scenarios.

**Bell Work**- Apply factors and multiples.

**Classwork**

(1) Examined homework "GCF or LCM Scenarios #1-10." Discussed what we use to solve each problem, GCF or LCM, then solved.

(2) 1st Period - worked on group presentations, posting them in class

2nd, 3rd and 4th Period - finished notes on LCM examining why the factor slide does not work for finding the least common multiple of 3 or more numbers. Instead,

use prime factorization for finding the multiple of 3 or more numbers. Use either prime factorization or the factor slide for 2 numbers.

(3) 2nd Period - work on group presentations.

**Homework**- (1) Get decimal test parent letter signed and complete tasks for retesting - due tomorrow. (2) Create a graphic organizer where you summarize the main ideas from your lesson on factors and multiples. Topics include, but are not limited to: factors vs. multiples - what are they and how are they similar or different, gcf vs. lcm - are they connected and how?, prime factorization, factors and the distributive property - when do we use them and how? Make sure you have the following things in your graphic organizer: a strong title, necessary images that enhance the topics (examples, models, organized table, etc.), labels, detailed and relevant information, color, and that it's neat. I will give you a rubric tomorrow. It's not due until Friday, so work on a rough draft tonight. We will share ideas tomorrow. (3) Correct Shopping Project by Friday, September 19th.

All Classes: Rubric for "Summarizing Factors and Multiples" provided. Some classes discussed.

Create a graphic organizer summarizing the main ideas from this unit. Some topics include: factors vs. multiples - what are they and how are they similar or different, gcf vs. lcm - are they connected and how?, prime factorization, factors and the distributive property - when do we use them and how?

You can focus on as many topics as you want that will demonstrate your knowledge of how factors and multiples are similar and different.

Make sure you have the following things in your graphic organizer:

## Thursday, September 18, 2014 - NS.4. I can apply factors and multiples.

**Bell Work**- Apply factors and multiples. In addition, we examined pairs of consecutive numbers and found that the multiple is the product of the two numbers because consecutive numbers do not share any prime factors. Since the least common multiple has to include all prime factors of the numbers you are finding the LCM for, you would simply find the product of the two consecutive numbers.

**Classwork**

(1) Questions about the foldables rubric were answered

(2)

__Writing rubric__was added to p.13 of foldables notebook (problem 21 - Fred's Paycheck). A model of the work for Fred's Paycheck was provided for students who wanted/needed it.

(3) More clarity for the foldable summarizing task was given. Focus on the topic, how factors and multiples are similar and different, using prime factorization, GCF and LCM, the distributive property, and/or real-world examples to support this topic. Due date has been extended to Monday, September 22nd.

(4)

__GCF and LCM Quiz__- Students self-assessed their work by "highlighting the positive." They reviewed the solutions and compared their work. Highlighted responses are the correct solutions.

**with tasks to complete for review. Students scoring below a 70 in either area must complete an (1) error analysis of questions missed (explain why you missed the problem and provide the correct work and solution), (2) application/problem solving using GCF or LCM (posted below), and (3) finding GCF and LCM of given sets of numbers. The following questions on the quiz involved GCF: #1-6, 7, and 9. LCM included #1-6, 8 and 10. Students who scored above a 70 can complete these assignments for extra credit.**
