Today, we chose our groups with our leaders (shown below), our books and our roles.




L1 Patterns #4, 5, 6 | L2# 4, 6, 7 | L3 Variables | L4 # 6, 7

Today Mr. BT gave us some questions for L1 and L2 and ran through L3.

Questions for L1 are # 4, 5 and 6

Questions for L2 are # 4, 6 and 7

L3 was on Variables

L4 # 6 and 720170120_153432



L2 – Relationship Rules for Patterns (Recursive Pattern Rule)

Today Mr. BT showed us Relationship Rules For Patterns and Recursive Patterns. He have us some questions to do for the weekend (4, 6 and 7)




(NEW UNIT) L1 – Patterning

Today Mr. BT gave us an in-depth explanation on patterning to start our new unit.

ATTENTION PARENTS: This Friday will be an information-packed day that will bring your child behind if they are absent then, so try and make sure they can come that day.




Unit Test – Tomorrow

Mr. BT has announced that we will be having our unit test tomorrow, for that he has told us what it will consist of and he has given us 6 pages of test prep (Different Post).

The test will consist of questions regarding:


Factors/Factor Trees


Counting Coins



Order of Operation (Post Dedicated To It)



Unit Test – Test Prep

Since the huge unit test is tomorrow, Mr. BT gave us 6 optional pages that we can do to prep for tomorrow.

I will make a separate post regarding what the test consists of.




Order Of Operations – Run Down

The order of operations is the order of importance for multi-operation equation, the order is simply abbreviated to “BEDMAS”








If an operation in a multiple-operation equation has brackets around it, you must complete the equation in brackets before the rest.


If a number has an exponent attached to it, you must always do the operation for that number after finishing the brackets.


After you complete the Brackets and Exponents, you must complete the division operation.


After completing Brackets, Exponents and Division, you must complete the operation regarding multiplication.


After completing Brackets, Exponents, Division and Subtraction, you must complete the addition operation.


Finally, after you are done the Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication and the Addition, you must complete the subtraction as the last part of the operation.


That’s just the run-down of the order of operation, if you have anymore questions email me at (prefered) or




L7 – Dividing by 1000 and 10000 ——L8 – Dividing by Tens and Hundreds —-Homework

Today Mr. BT gave us a package for L7 and L8 and he gave us some questions to do for the weekend. L7 is on dividing by 1,000s and 10,000s and L8 is on dividing by tens and hundreds.
