Here's some important review.  You'll see problems like these on quizzes and tests.


Hi Guys, Remember this from class?  We talked about why this method is useful and how it keeps us organized, but one of the great things about this method is that if you are stuck or can't think of a factor pair quickly, you can skip it and come back later using the other factors you found as clues.

Here's the screencast.

Prime Time Vocabulary

Hi Guys!  I've noticed some of us are still having trouble remembering the difference between factors and multiples.  I made a screencast of key vocabulary words in the unit.  It is no longer than five minutes.  I hope it helps.

Inaugural Blog Post!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the first blog post for the 2011-2012 school year.  I will attempt to post at least once a week to with all the items we have discussed in class.  Please comment on any and all posts.  You may ask questions, respond to your classmates questions, or simply add to the discussion.  When commenting be mindful of your tone, often sarcasm does not translate through our writing.  It is also important that we be as professional as possible even though we are in a digital format.  It is my expectation that you will make an effort to proofread, edit, and use correct grammar before you publish your post.  Also, be sure not to add any identifying comments to your posts including your full name, address, email address, or photos.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you!  More to come.  In the meantime, enjoy one of my favorite panels of my favorite comic strip.
