When he handed our tests back we had to hand in our stash-it's at the same time, so I hope that you all did that and it was completed!
We got this BIG package full of questions about rational numbers for our new unit, which is obviously on rational numbers. It also included a self-assessment, and we were supposed to fill out the before section of 2.1.
After that we took some notes on RATIONAL NUMBERS. We found out that a rational number means:
-Any number that can be expressed as a fraction A/B where A and B are integers and B doesn't=0
We made a diagram that looked something like this:
IRRATIONAL NUMBERS- cannot be expressed as fractions. Examples of this are: √3 and π (pi)
That was pretty much all that we learned today.
I found a website that you may want to go to, it will help you to figure out what we will be learning about in this unit, in case you are already confused.

For homework you DON'T HAVE TO DO JOURNAL! We didn't get our journals back, so don't worry about it. You also have to get your test signed, and the GET READY section of your workbook (pg 14-15) The workbook part is really easy, mostly reading and a few simple integer questions.
I pick Karen for the next scribe. PLEASE comment :]
