### Scribe Post for October 29th 2009

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Hey Guys, Today in class we played a fraction game using cards. The red cards were represented positive numbers, and the black cards represented negitive numbers. So in order to play the game you need 2 cards and put them in a fraction (the cards were handed out randomly) after that you have to put your number on the number line and whoever was closest to 0 on the number line would get 2 points.

Example:

Jim's fraction is -2/9 and Bob's fraction is -4/7.

Who do you think is closer to zero?...

-2/9 is closer because if u find it's decimal value it is: -0.22(repeating)

-4/7 decimal value is: -0.57.

Where is the Half point for 2/3?

Homework for tonight is: 3 questions that ask you to compare the fractions using the denominator. The fractions that you have to compare are

1/2 and 1/3

1/5 and 2/4

2/3 and2/4

Besides that we also have section 2.1 Math Link (the worksheet Mr.B gave us)

Well I have said what we did in class so I guess that means I am done my scribe.

For the next scribe I am not going to choose another guy because it has been only guys that have been doing scribes...Next is Nichole! Good Luck

Remember the Halloween dance is tomorrow so if you don't have all of your work in make sure you get it done so you can go. Oh yeah I almost forgot: COMMENT!!!

your number line is still wrong. You found out that -4/7 is -0.57 as a decimal but my beef is that the fraction is placed before -0.5 on the number line. I know MR,B talked about the number line in class but I just wanted to point that out.
