### WE HEART PRODIGY!!!!

I would like to Congratulate my 3rd block class. They competed in the Prodigy Math World Series and finished 118th out of 1096 classes. I was very very proud of there performance. To celebrate we had cookie cake and it turned out great too!!!!

BIG THANKS to Great American Cookie Co. in Paducah KY

### MORE ORDER OF OPERATIONS & COLORING

Students are finalizing their review of the Order of Operations with an IXL assignment 6.O.3 and then completing the leaf coloring sheet for an assessment score.

### ORDER OF OPERATIONS - REVIEWING THE CONCEPT

Students were polled at the beginning of class. We then went over the diagram below to discuss the real method. We discussed the misconceptions and the new symbols that help us multiply.

We practice the following problems together, some of the examples are shown.

### EXPONENT ASSESSMENT

We used this worksheet to count as our final assessment over exponents before jumping in to the Order of Operations.

### EXPONENT PRACTICE

These sheets were used for practice. Student practiced answering questions related to repeat multiplication and finding the value of the given problems written in exponential form.

After we finished reviewing exponents, students worked on IXL 6.D.2 and then did a quick assessment using PRODIGY

### EXPONENTS - INTRODUCTION & NOTES

Along with this slide we discussed using the word squared and cubed to demonstrate the 2nd and 3rd power.

### INTRODUCTION TO THE 4-QUADRANTS

In class today we discussed a quadrant 1 activity we did for review. We then branches off of that to talk about the other 3 quadrants. The above notes were taken and discussed detail by detail as I clicked through the slide. I love slide animations! The last 2 slides were to allow us time to practice naming points and fininding points. Tomorrow is the real test of plotting points.

### BUSY DAY - MULTI-TASKING

Today in class students were turning in their homework, getting their new weekly homework, finishing their Prodigy assignment, quizzing over ordering integers from least to greatest and reviewing plotting points in the 1st quadrant.

While all of this was taking place students were called randomly to draw 6 rocks and arrange them from least to greatest order.

### ROLL AN INTEGER

In this activity students were given a shacker with a penny and two 12-sided die inside. Below is a picture of our shakers and the example we worked through on the board. Finally there is a student example showing her final product.
