The class started with a "mini-learning assessment" that covered 4.1 to 4.3 and your STEM teacher will return this to you next class. This would have told you if you are understanding your homework or not.

You were then given your fraction unit test to do corrections for in class. If you did not finish in class, then it is homework.

Homework:

1) Unit Test Corrections

2) Study for December Math Exam (integers, fractions, section 4.1 to 4.3)

## december 2 and 3 - lesson 3

Today's lesson started with a warm-up assignment on percentages, decimals, and fractions. This was a worksheet that students did on their own and then the STEM teacher discussed it with the class.

This was followed by a lesson on percents, decimals, and fractions and how to convert between all three of these.

Students were then given time to work in groups on the assignment.

Homework:

## November 30 and December 1 - Lesson 2a

Today, we looked at Lesson 2a: Problem Solving (in relation to rate, ratio, and proportional reasoning). Your teacher went over the "how to" checklist and then worked through a problem using that checklist. After this, students worked on the assignment sheet which had several problem solving questions. Students were encouraged to use their notes and follow the checklist to complete the assignment on a separate piece of paper.

If you were away, here is a copy of both the checklist and the assignment:

## October 26 and 27 - unit test analysis

In math, we started with bellwork again. This time, it was a multiplication drill. Don't forget the three multiplication equations that you CANNOT get wrong next class.

Much time was then spent on going over the Unit Test. Your teacher went over some of the main issues that students faced on the test and then there was time to work on completing the Unit Test Corrections and Analysis.

HOMEWORK:

1) Complete the Unit Test Analysis for every question that you got wrong or half-wrong. Due October 28 and 29.
