Ferb and Quiz Bowl Qs

Ferb was due on Friday, but here is a link to his coordinate points if you need them.  Any sheet of graph paper will do as long as you draw a coordinate plane on it.

Quiz Bowl questions are optional this time, but here is a link to them!  You may write as many as you want in each category and/or come up with your own selection of potpourri.  Please turn them in by Wednesday if you would like them considered for the final round.  Have fun!

Week Reminders

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week will be "normal" homework days in preparation for the negatives test on THURSDAY.
Thursday evening's homework will be test corrections ... aim not to have any!
The Ferb coordinate picture is due by Friday, May 26.

Runs this week in P.E.  Dress for the weather! ;-)

Homework for Wednesday, May 17

Assignment: Real Life Negatives C
*Finn, do not attempt this stunt at home, it's too dangerous.  Wait until you receive specific instructions from me. ;-)
We went over this ad nauseam in class today: you MUST write the correct equation in the order it is shown before solving.  In fact, I didn't offer this in class, but if you want to write it as a variable equation that's okay too.  Simply assign each number a variable letter and put that on the equation line.  This earns one point per equation.
Having the correct solution is the second part.
Knowing how to set up an equation from verbal (written) information is the skill we're working on, eh?
Due Thursday

Homework for Tuesday, May 16

Assignment: Adding and Subtracting Negatives
Be careful, be efficient, and do NOT hop the number line.
Organize, commute and associate, and think about the values of the numbers you are using.
Be sure to indicate whether your solution is positive or negative ... it does matter.  ;-)
Due Wednesday

Homework for Monday, May 15

Today we discussed thinking about subtraction as addition problems.  Following the rules of addition, we can think concretely about what a negative number represents and move it into any place in the addition equation that suits us.  Use your notes for review as needed.

Assignment choices:
S) Subtraction worksheet (Link!) follows the basics of subtraction, first rewriting the equation into addition problems, then noting the value of which number is larger (the positive or negative) and solving accordingly.  Once you have changed it into an addition problem, you know the steps ...

V) 1.6 Variables in subtraction  (Link!) means that you replace the variable, in this case "x" and "y" with a negative value.  For some equations the "not-not" will come into play and you will instead add.  For others your negative variable will fit right into your addition problem, no rewriting necessary.

For those of you absent today, please start with the "S" option and only if you have someone with you who remembers how to work with the subtraction of negatives ... without subtracting.  ;-)
If you were absent today you may also wait to go over it with me!

Due Tuesday

Homework for Thursday, May 5

*Your Finance Park Folder is your priority.  Turn in today's assignment late if you need to!

Assignment: Negative Addition Choice
*The title of each assignment option is a link to the worksheet.
*Feel free to select a different assignment than the one you chose in class and/or do more than one worksheet if you are interested!
A) Addition Basics - Practice using negatives in simple equations!
B) Big Addition - Same skill with bigger numbers.
L) Longer Addition - Longer equations where you will need to sort your positives and negatives together before solving.  If you are still number-line hopping, this worksheet is not for you.
D) Decimals - Test your ability to "do" the right thing and keep track of whether or not your answer is positive or negative.
Due Friday

Thanks to Nick for asking about Quizlet!
Yes, I have a lot of Quizlet sets for negative.  If you'd like to prepare for Monday, I recommend  the set I just created for you today: Negative Addition.
If you want to, play in Gravity mode and set the record for everyone else to beat!  First one there is in first place for at least that moment, eh?

Homework for Wednesday, May 10

Assignment: Real Life Negatives B - Link!
Same as yesterday, your task is to make sense of the problem and solve for the question.  We're still not concerned with what it looks like in an equation, but we did practice thinking about it today.  We will be seeing equations on worksheets soon ... don't rush it!
Be sure to write all of your work on the paper so I can see how you are solving these.
Calculators are not allowed again; I'm hoping that goes unsaid.  ;-)
Due Thursday
