Alligator Math 11/20-11/24

We have been working on ratios since the beginning of the school year and we are getting ready to get into some equations and evaluating expressions. We have also dabbled in some division of fractions recently since it seemed that many of the students needed a refresher.

I definitely want to reinforce the idea that the content in math is going to become progressively harder as the year goes on. I have been explaining to students that it is extremely important for them to pay attention and to avoid any distractions and/or create any disruptions which could damage the learning environment. As with any math curriculum Engage New York builds the content based on knowledge received from prior lessons. As a result paying attention in class is not only helpful in the moment but also essential for future comprehension.
