Hello 5th Grade,
This will be an adventure, much like homeschool. I will give daily assignments, including the packet I gave you Friday, reading and problems in your textbook, and IXL assignments.
I gave you your passwords attached to your packet. If you lost it, email me. I brought home a copy of the passwords.
Math: You should have your textbook and math notebook with you at home.
We continue our study of Chapter 7 Collecting, Organizing, and Displaying Data. Put vocabulary definitions on page 152 in your math notebook. The definitions are found in the glossary of your textbook. Know the difference between a tally and a frequency chart.
Read pages 152-157.
2. For Tuesday, do Student-Built Glossary, which is the first page of your new packet.
Read the examples for range mode, median, and mean. Tomorrow I will discuss them here on the Weebly page. Before we discuss, read the text slowly and line by line, We read math books differently than literature books. Math must be read one line at a time. Ask yourself questions, such as "Where did that number come from?" and don't go on until you see it.
Also, reread. Sometimes math needs several readings
If you have any questions email me.
Math for Tuesday, March 17:
1. Know the Steps and be able to explain verbally each of these: Median, Mode, Mean, and Range. There are good examples on page 155 under Use Decimal Data and Find the Median. Follow the Steps. Then do #1 and #2 at the bottom of p. 155 under Try It..
1. List numbers small to large.
2. For an odd number of items, the median is the middle one.
3. For #1: mean is 15
median is 15
mode is 16
range is 7
If you missed any of the above, go back and reread pages 154-155.
Homework: page 156 #4-9 and 7-1 Reteach in your packet.
In your math notebooks, write in your own words how to solve each one: mean, median, mode, and range.
You should be spending at least one hour per day for math. The textbook is your "classroom instruction." You may work ahead in your packet if you wish.
Work to do on Wednesday, March 18:
Packet 7-1 Skills Practice page 9. If you can, scan the page and email it to me. If not, keep working in your new packet and I'll collect it when we get back.
1. By now everyone should have an understanding of mean(average), median(middle), mode(occurs more than once), and range(subtract lowest number from highest).
2. What happens if there is an even number of entries when trying to find the median? Take the middle two numbers, add them together, and divide by two. You are "averaging" them, and you'll get a new number most of the time.See Step 2 on page 155 in your text.
3. I am making an IXL assignment for Wednesday. If you lost your access code, email me. I have the passwords. Ms. Dal Santo is also assigning work in IXL. You are working for "proficiency," and the program will continue until you reach your goal. I can't tell you how may to do because it varies. Work for at least 30 minutes per day. Remember, this is school, not just homework. One hour per day is your math time.
4. IXL: 5th grade math Section X: numbers 1 and 2 for tonight. Two numbers (like X.1, X.2) will be assigned every day.
P.S. Please keep math work by the day and label Math #1, 3/16, Math #2, 3/17, etc.
Keep math packet intact.Keep all work together. I will grade when we get back.
Work for Thursday, March 19:
IXL: 5th math, Sections X-3, X-4, X-5
Practice with Mode, Median, and Mean. Your goal is between Proficiency and Mastery.
Packet: 7-1 Homework Practice p. 10. Number 22 has an even amount of entries, so you will need to average the center two numbers.
If you finish your assignment early, you may go to Cool Math if you wish.
Work for Friday, March 20
Happy 1st day of spring! It could be warmer, but it's coming.
We continue our study of Mean, Median, and Mode.
Packet 7-1 Problem-Solving Practice page 11 and 7-1 Enrich p. 12.
Tomorrow finishes our study of mean, median, mode, and range. Monday we will start line plots.
Continue IXL with X6, X7, and X8. Remember I am looking for Proficiency to Mastery. Keep going until you get there. If you finish all of this, you can go to Cool Math.
P.S. Due to the before-planned day off on Friday, I will extend Friday's schoolwork assignment until Monday. Don't fall behind!
Work for March 24, Tuesday
Math: For classwork, reread pages 154-155. Then do problems #4-14. This is more practice on last week's lesson, and it should be getting easier. If you have difficulty, go to Khan Academy on YouTube. For number 11 and 12 on p. 156, it's just a different way of presenting data. Each x is a number.
When that is done, do Packet 7-2 Reteach: Problem Solving Investigation, p. 14. Don't you just love word problems? Catch up on IXL if you haven't completed the sections.
In addition, please check all the websites for your Specials teachers. They also have assignments. Spanish, Music, Gym, Computer, etc.
Work for Wednesday, March 25
Math:.Continue learning about mean, median, mode, and range with 7-2 Reteach Problem-Solving Strategies p. 14 and 7-3 Reteach Line Plots p. 18.
Your IXL assignment is X.9 and X.10. Please keep up with the IXL assignments and complete each section. You may work ahead if you wish.
When you finish, take a picture of your finished packet page and email it to me. Our school wants students to submit work as it is done, but ALSO hold onto all assignments for me
Work for Thursday, March 26:
We are learning Line Plots. There is a good picture on. p. 156 in your text. It looks like x's above a certain number, and that's exactly what it is. Please do 7-3 Skills Practice, 7-3 Homework Practice, and 7-3 Problem- Solving Practice.
Finish any IXL sections you have not yet done. Remember, I will be giving you a grade for IXL work.
If you are having difficulty understanding anything, email me or go to these resources:
Khan Academy through YouTube. There are other videos out there besides Khan Academy. Look at them if you prefer. Just type in your subject (Math - Line Plots) and many will pop up.
Please - some students need to recite multiplication tables. Smoothly. No pauses. Practice! I can't tell you how important this is for 6th grade. You can be the best grade of all!!!
Work for Friday, March 27
Bar Graphs are our next lesson, Chapter 7-4. Your textbook has some nice examples on pp.160 and 161.
I know you have seen bar graphs before, but take a close look at them. There is always a space on the bottom left near zero. The bar DOES NOT go to the edge. Please put new math vocabulary words from the yellow box in your math notebooks. Read pages 160-162.
Your IXL assignment is W.4 Bar Graphs.
For the weekend, finish 7-4 Reteach, 7-4 Homework Practice, and 7-4 Problem Solving Practice. Have a productive weekend.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
