Mandatory Lessons - Week of 5/11/2020

  • Hi, everyone! Here is what's on our agenda for this week (5/4/2020).

    • Period 3 - ELA: If you haven't yet, please finish your Figurative Language Warm-Ups worksheet. Explain the figurative meaning of each idiom/ adage and then use it in your own sentence. If you complete 4 per day, you will finish the worksheet by Friday. Then, refer to CommonLit for your next story. There are 8 assigned stories; so long as you read one per week, you will be on track to complete your work by the end of the school year (6/12/2020). If you want to read more than one, go ahead! I will grade it and leave comments for you as you complete it. As you read, practice making annotations by selecting/ highlighting parts of the text and typing a note for yourself.

      Spend Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday reading and annotating. On Thursday, answer the assessment questions. On Friday, respond to the discussion. HAPPY READING!

    • Periods 4, 5/6, 8, 9 - Math: This week, we will complete our daily warm-up with 5-A-Day Math Review: Week 33. Then, we will complete a lesson called "Multiplying Integers." Picture the Integer Number Line in our classroom. It's on the right side of the white board and it runs up and down with 0 in the middle.

      PAGE 1: Follow the examples to multiply integers. Note that:

      positive x positive = positive
      positive x negative = negative
      negative x negative = positive
      negative x negative = positive

      One negative overpowers a positive, but two negatives cancel out to MAKE a positive. Think about the + sign: it is made of TWO negative signs across each other.

      If you would like extra credit this week, then complete page 2. Otherwise, don't stress over it. =)

      PAGE 2: Find the number of feet climbed by each climber. Be careful! They are not starting at 0; rather, they are starting at a -384 feet compared to sea level (0).

      For example, to solve #1:
      Climber A went from Base Camp to Camp 1 and back to Base Camp. (If you hike to the top a mountain, you have to hike back down.)

      384 ft. + 5,027 ft. + 5,027 ft. + 384 ft. = 10,822 total feet climbed

      Climber A had to get from -384 to 0, then climb 5,027 up, turn around and hike 5,027 back down to sea level, and 384 back down to base camp.
