Workbook page 244

October 3rd

We defined integers as whole numbers and their opposites.

Homework:

On a separate piece of paper, draw a picture that illustrates a real - life use of negative integers (it can just be simple sketch but I would be happy to hang some up in the room). Write a sentence or two that explains how negative numbers are used in your picture.

October 2nd

We learned about how zero was first used in equations and researched the properties of whole numbers. We completed a chart in Google Classroom

Homework:

  • Properties worksheet

October 1st

We learned about the binary place value system and how it is used.
