Extra Practice 2.3
Seems like a lot, doesn't it? However, we get two days to do it! BUT! Don't wait until tomorrow at 10 o'clock to do them... Believe me, everyone (except me because I'm a good little boy) has done that. Still, I trust that "The Class" won't let me down.
So, still waiting for epicness? Well, say hello to my little friend. His name is Ned the Integoolie. Some of you may recall him from my integer story from last year.So, you may be asking why Ned is here, aren't you? Well Ned is here for two things. The first is to tell you that you "should" have lots of stuff in your foldable (you can still be working on it) and the second is to recite a poem about dividing decimals. Yes, I am serious... Just listen...
The other day in math class,
I was pondering my math,
Why must we take a long, hard path?
Is it that our math teachers,
Who appear so kind and nice,
Are really mean and nasty,
Waiting to watch us squirm like mice?
Or is it the curriculum?
With it's "required" things?
Is it really that necessary,
Does it help us earn our wings?
The answer is quite simple,
I tell you this is true,
It is to prepare us all,
Including me and you.
It'll prepare us for math much later,
When we are in high school,
So when we see hard questions,
We understand which is quite cool.
Sure, now we can use calculators,
But that won't help us much,
When the numbers turn to variables,
We must simply understand it,
So that when it's time to fly,
We can do it really easily,
And that my friends is why.
Bravo Ned, your poems are always great. However, to all of you rhymically challenged, or those to lazy to read it, here's a summary. Mr B told us today that we needn't do long division all the time and that we must simply know how to do it. So, for now, it's perfectly fine to be using your calculator.
So, here's a bit of a recap for you. You must complete 2.3 Extra Practice and in your Workbook and begin filling in your foldable. Also, you can expect a math test on either Monday or Tuesday.
And to that, I bid you all a good night and happy homework. Fare thee well until the morrow!
