|Subject Area||Honors Math|
|Unit of Instruction||Number Systems|
Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
I know I am successful when I can:
•describe the relative position of two numbers on a number line. • describe the relative position of two numbers on a number line when given an inequality. • order rational numbers on a number line. • compare rational numbers using inequality symbols and justify the symbol used. • understand, compare, and interpret rational numbers found in real-world scenarios. • discover absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on a number line. • model absolute value with number lines. • understand that quantities could have a negative value based on the scenario such as debt. • explain the reasoning that as the value on a negative rational number decreases, its absolute value (distance from zero) increases.• use patterns and properties to explore the multiplication of integers.
We will be reviewing the past lessons to prepare for our first test this week.
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.
There are no new assignments due this week to prepare for our test. Please make sure all past assignments are completed.
We will take our first test on Thursday 9/6 covering the following concepts:
Operations with Integers
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
