### COMPUTER LAB - COORDINATE GRID PRACTICE

BOAT COORDINATES - CLICK START, 4 QUADRANT GRID, CHOOSE GRID IN THE LOWER RIGHT OF GAME BOARD. YOU WILL CHANGE THE COORDINATE AND CLICK MOVE TO MAKE THE BOAT REACH THE POINT

BOMBS ON THE GRID - CLICK PLAY, READ THE DIRECTIONS, CHOOSE ADVANCED

MATH PUP FLYING SAUCER - CHOOSE 4 QUADRANT GRID, YOU WILL MOVE THE FLYING SAUCER UNTIL THE DOT RESTS ON THE COORDINATE GIVEN

ROCKET DOWN - COLLECT ALL THE FUEL TANKS LOCATED ON THE COORDINATE GRID, YOU MUST SELECT THE ONE LISTED. IF YOU DON'T SELECT THEM FAST ENOUGH YOUR SHIP WILL CRASH AND GAME OVER.

LOCATE THE ALIENS - TYPE IN THE LOCATION OF EACH ALIEN

STOCK THE SHELVES - MOVE THE MOUSE TO SELECT THE LOCATION OF THE BOTTLES. SEE HOW FAST YOU CAN STOCK THE SHELVES. CAN YOU BEAT 200 POINTS?

### 9/29/2014 HOMEWORK

The top section was completed together in class.
A=3
B=5
C=7
D=8
E=6
F=1
G=4
H=9
J=0
K=2

These values will replace the letters in the coordinate pairs. Students were directed to change the coordinates on the list before they begin graphing.

For last nights homework students were told to stop at the first stop, making sure to connect each point to the next on the list.

### COORDINATE GRID

This was copied into everyone's math journal. It is very important that all students know each quadrant and be able to describe what the coordinates look like that fall into each quadrant.

### INTEGER KEYWORDS/OPPOSITES/ABSOLUTE VALUE

These are the notes we created today in class based on the powerpoint. Students were given situations to read and were asked to pick out the keyword that described a positive or a negative. Together we created the following list on the board. Everyone copied the list in to their math notebook.
After talking about the situations we then reviewed what opposite numbers were. The following picture is of the notes we took today as a reminder.

### NUMBER SYSTEM (7TH BLOCK ONLY)

Natural numbers are naturally Numbers you count on your hands and your feet 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and so on Whole numbers are natural numbers plus zero That's the only difference, oh, oh 0, 1, 2, 3, and so on Integers are whole numbers plus negatives They look a little bit like this -2, -1, 0, 1, and so on Last but not least, not to be outdone Rational numbers are integers plus fractions Like -3, 1/2, 5/8 and 14.2 All natural numbers are whole numbers All whole numbers are integers All integers are rational numbers Now listen to that drummer! What about 4? It's a natural number so it's also whole, integer, and rational What about -2? Integer and rational What about 1.5? It's just rational What about 0? It's whole, integer, and rational All natural numbers are whole numbers All whole numbers are integers All integers are rational numbers Now listen to that drummer!

----- Song and video by Colin Dodds

**Rational Numbers**
Numbers that can be written as a fraction and include whole numbers, zero, positive & negative integers, positive & negative fractions, positive & negative non-repeating decimals

### MATH NOTEBOOK DECIMAL FOLDABLE

Today we started our decimal fold able. Adding notes about addition and subtraction. Below is the information students added to their foldable. The 2 boxes on the left will represent the foldable when it is open. The right side are the practice problems we completed after the foldable was filled in.

All of this information has been put on Pages 10 and 11 of the math notebook.

### HANDS ON ORDERING DECIMALS ASSESSMENT

Today students were assessed (without them realizing) by placing their decimal correctly on the number line (clothes line).

• Students were given a decimal paper (fold in half like a tent)
• They had to place it on the number line keeping all decimals in least to greatest order
• Students then collected a paper and created their own decimal on the other side of their tent
• When the students were randomly sent to the number line I assessed their placement of the decimal they created. If they did a great job they received a 100%, if they made a mistake or had to be guided they got an 80%.
