MAFS.6.NS.2.4

Find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than or equal to 100 and the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12. Use the distributive property to express a sum of two whole numbers 1-100 with a common factor as a multiple of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor.

MAFS.6.NS.1.1

Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of
fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the
problem.

 

 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

I know I am successful when I can: 

• apply odd and even numbers to understand factors and multiples.
• apply divisibility rules (review rules for 2, 4, 5, 8, and 10),
specifically for 3 and 9.
• find the least common multiple and greatest common factor and
apply factors to the distributive property.

• model division of fractions with manipulatives, visual diagrams (bar
models, number lines), and word problems.
• interpret what the quotient represents in mathematical real-world
problems.
• understand that multiplication and division are inverse operations.
• divide fractions procedurally using the multiplicative inverse.

Classroom Activities

We will be wrapping up GCF/LCM this week and will be starting our lessons on Multiplying and Dividing Fractions. 

For students that have completed all of their assignments, we will be playing a review game to study for the test. Students who are missing assignments will be allowed additional class time to complete the assignments before the test Thursday/Friday.

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards. 

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday) I9 students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments. 

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) Homework #1: Multiples and LCM Due Thursday, 9/6/18 (This was assigned last week)

We will take our first test on Factors and Multiples on Thursday (Period 2) or Friday(Period 5 and 7).

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
