WEEK 1-5 SEPTEMBER 19-20-21-22 _COPY 6/47, 7/48, 8/49 _next week plan for students to find the range, mode, median, and mean for benchmark cbm as part of puzzling on Monday
MATH 7
Monday- discuss “Forensic Investigation Practices” and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard questions before puzzle work (DO THE DOWN PROBLEMS)
J-Lab time will be for spreadsheet assembly… plan for a cbm moment as well, so we can start plotting our correct number of digits. J
Puzzle 1: working with problems DOWN, students are assigned problems to solve and teach to the rest of the class Concepts explored: _ Austin DACS testing… Conference about DACS scores and hand out progress reports. J
Hand in: page 5/46
HOMEWORK: complete journal page (“Four Points of Interest”)
TUESDAY7.RP.1. Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units. For example, if a person walks 1/2 mile in each 1/4 hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction 1/2/1/4 miles per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour.
Old Business: 7-1 Ratios do page 375-376, p. 380-381 Word Wall Wednesday: sign up for vocabulary project and work on definitions for this unit
Copy into MATH TAB the underlined phrase: 7.NS.2 … Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (–1)(–1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
Integer rules: + * + = + - * - = + and so on… extend into division
Explore the why.
(The above standard ties into the one we wrote last week, which we are still moving towards: 7.G.1. Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale. 7.NS.2. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers)
HOMEWORK: complete journal page and begin p. 385/386 by doing odds “Solving Proportions”
WEDNESDAY start with a (_copy) cbm #5 moment! JGO over p. 385 and 386, begin work on story problems on page 387 and page 389… for working on page 389 look for a pattern for solving proportions that works in all cases to create equivalent ratios to form proportions. Look at the first column and design a strategy and then let the kids go!
Lab: Similar Rectangles activity from Geometry Camp Create worksheet and copy rectangles from my notes before doing this lab.
HOMEWORK: complete journal page and (___ copy) 7-4 Scale Drawings p. 390 and 391, and word wall project
THURSDAY read aloud from algebra book…
J-Lab time will be for spreadsheet assembly… plan for a cbm moment as well, so we can start plotting our correct number of digits. J
Students who have their work done may get on J-Lab today and work on Mrs. Bodensteiner’s projects. If their name is on the board, they will not work on computer. J If there is time, targeted students need to meet with me as well: Kelsey, Selena, Kaitlin, Koby, Noel, Dalton, Caelan, Jordan, Morgan and Jon.
HOMEWORK: page 6/47 skills: subtracting whole numbers; multiplying decimals and whole #’s
WEEK 1-4 SEPTEMBER 12-13-14-15

Next Monday- discuss “Forensic Investigation Practices” and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard questions before puzzle work

MATH 7

MONDAY Puzzle 1: working with problems ACROSS, students are assigned problems to solve and teach to the rest of the class Concepts explored: similar figures, factorial, estimating (7th grade actually had a debate during this class period about what is considered “close”), order of operations, relationships of vertices on a rectangle while plotted on the coordinate plane, and characteristics of a parallelogram

Go over page 4/45

HOMEWORK: working on ratios assignment from last week and complete journal page (“Four Points of Interest”)

TUESDAY7.NS.2. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers. Old Business: …page 43 skills, page 44… dividing decimals by whole numbers… too many students still struggling with this skill… page 45 too. Did we get page 4 looked at too?

Copy into MATH TAB: 7.RP.1. Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units. For example, if a person walks 1/2 mile in each 1/4 hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction 1/2/1/4 miles per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour.

HOMEWORK: complete journal page

WEDNESDAY 7-1 Ratios do page 375-376, p. 380-381 Word Wall Wednesday: sign up for vocabulary project and work on definitions for this unit

Work towards activities about scale factor from Geometry camp

HOMEWORK: complete journal page and any ratio work that needs to be completed

THURSDAY Students who have their work done may get on J-Lab today and work on Mrs. Bodensteiner’s projects. If their name is on the board, they will not work on computer. Austin and Annaleise need to DACS test. The other students need to conference about DACS scores. J If there is time, targeted students need to meet with me as well: Kelsey, Selena, Kaitlin, Koby, Noel, Dalton, Caelan, Jordan, Morgan and Jon.

HOMEWORK: page 5/46 skills: finding the difference and operations with decimals… do column one on both pages
