So we went to the mini musical and the deal was you (Math 8 students) would view 1 video and do 4 math problems to be all the more prepared for the Unit Test on Scientific Notation and Exponents.

Here is the video

Gotta love that accent… 🙂

And the problems

Remember if these aren’t completed… dark chocolate is mine!

Today we continued to work on a project I’m calling:

“I can teach a 4th grader!” where students are working on creating their own lesson plans to teach a struggling 4th grade student how to solve different kinds of problems with fractions.

Today students completed their lesson plans and began to make a poster to display all of their work.

On Monday we will complete the posters (I will be sure to post them!) and then teach mini lessons to other classmates. In the future, I would love to see if we could get some visitors (4th grade-adults) to come be taught by these fantastic 6th grade students!

Here is the homework due Monday: May_9 HW

Here is a video about fractions (I find these on youtube.com so feel free to look up better ones!)

Have a great weekend!
