This is going to be a short post to match the short week we are in. Students will be taking the second round of Acuity testing today and tomorrow. There is no homework or quiz this week. Have a great Thanksgiving!
With only 21 more school days before Winter Break, we will be starting our final chapters of this semester: Rates & Ratio Reasoning. These two chapters are very similar to, and build upon our last chapter, Ratios. Students should continue reviewing their material from the Ratios chapter because these topics are so closely related. Please refer to the Resources by Chapter pages for each chapter for additional support.
This week will be our introduction to Rates and Ratio Reasoning. Today (Monday), we spent some time going over the vocabulary for these chapters. Students need to be practicing these words to ensure they are ready for each weekly quiz. Tuesday through Thursday, we will work on determining if rates are equivalent or proportional, and writing rates as unit rates. Students will get their Ticket to Test (homework) on Wednesday, and Friday will be our first weekly quiz over these new chapters.
Wednesday, students will be practicing writing equivalent ratios with both lesser and greater terms. They will also receive their homework/Ticket to Test that day, which will be due on Friday in order to take the quiz. On Thursday, we will review the material from this week and last to ensure the students are prepared for the quiz that we will take on Friday. As I mentioned in my previous update, there are resources available under the Ratios page within the "Resources by Chapter" section of the website if your student needs a little more support with this material.
Each week a "Ticket to Test" will be assigned on Wednesday and will be due on Friday. Each Friday will be a weekly quiz over the week's material.
