Algebra Week 6



Quizzes from Friday are graded and entered. This week we’ll continue to work on fractions. Today we reviewed the quiz, and re-watched the how-to video for FINDING MIXED NUMBERS.

HW today was to draw your own sets of fraction strips: one set has 3 parts in each unit, one set has 4 parts in each unit, and one set has 5 parts in each unit. Then you were to shade in some of the parts so another person could write the fraction.
Yay.

List 2 things that would help this task get finished quickly and accurately next time.

BTW we were in the garden for about 30 minutes.








  • Who will clear away the pile of sawdust?
  • How much space do we have to make new planter boxes?


  • Water supply: reroute the hose straight to the planter box- what supplies do we need to do this?

  • What steps do we need to take to get this done?
  •  Should we move the boxes to a different location? If we want to, whose permission do we ask? Where do we move them to?
  •  How do we move them? What supplies will we need?
  • Have we waited too long to grow starts from seeds?
  • Should we build a compost pile?

  • Should we clear out the old dirt? Why or why not?
