E Block (Day 3) Thurs., Jan. 19 – Inverses, Equations, and Reducing Fractions Ahead of Time

Ha1  The title says it all!

Inverses, equations, and simplifying fractions ahead of time!  That’s what we did today.  We looked at equations and how they require us to use the inverses to solve them (or isolate the variable)

Remember that the details are what make us sophisticated mathematicians.  That’s why you need to know the properties and details of what you are doing.  If you are going to be scholars and change your future, you have to put in the hard work.


  1. I forgot to get your worksheets today.  See if you can find those!
  2. have a great Lunar Break!

E Block (Day 3) Wed., Jan. 12 – Fabulous Day of Test Corrections and Adding Integers

Brandon, remember what integers are?  You asked a very good question, and Sana assisted me in giving a very good answer!  🙂

I was pleased with both of you working so hard today!  Remember that if you had worked that hard yesterday (Tuesday), too, you wouldn’t have had to come in after school to finish test corrections.  I will have those marked for you by Friday.

I was also pleased to see that you both seem to have a firm grasp on adding integers.  Good work!

Our next topics will be working with operations with fractions.  I want to show you some of the more advanced stuff.  I think you will find it fascinating!  🙂


1. Finish the front side only of that worksheet I gave you!
