Math Final Update

Working on the History review now…trying to scale things down to the most important concepts based on what we learned last year about our students and their first experience with final exams…This space will be updated later tonight and into tomorrow with relevant information concerning both exams.

We will discuss this as a class tomorrow to see which areas students are and are not comfortable with.  I will then take a look at last year’s exam that was 50 questions and make any specific changes at that point.  As of now, though, this is a good start.

Math Final Review

  • Chapter 1 -Whole Numbers
    • standard form
    • word form
    • expanded form
    • estimate
  • Chapter 2 -Multiplying and Dividing Whole Numbers
    • multiplying two digits by two digits
    • multiplying four digits by two digits
    • word problems
  • Chapter 3 – Fractions and Mixed Numbers
    • adding fractions
    • subtracting fractions
    • LCD
  • Chapter 4 -Multiplying and Dividing Fractions and Whole Numbers
    • multiplying fractions
    • dividing fractions
    • word problems
  • Chapter 7 -Ratio
    • how to find ratio
  • Chapter 8 -Decimals
    • write decimals from least to greatest/ greatest to least
    • decimals as a mixed number
  • Chapter 9 -Multiplying and dividing decimals
    • multiplying decimals
    • dividing decimals
    • word problems
  • Chapter 10 – Percents (as part of fractions)
  • Chapter 12 -Angles (one or two problems based on what we recently covered)
    • angles on a line
    • angle measurements
    • find angles within a rectangle
  • Chapter 13 -Properties of Triangles & four-sided figures (if we get to it, something simple)
    • find angle measures in a triangle

Students should have examples of all these concepts in their notebooks.  Along w/ their notes there should also be actual examples and drawings. We don’t have to study anything from chapter 10, 11, 14. All other materials they can use are the actual chapter tests, the math reviews, the math review quizzes, and the textbooks.

Students have requested to make their own study guides for Math and so here’s the opportunity to do so!  Buona fortuna!
