WEDNESDAY   
7A MATH - Students learned about the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) and Least Common Multiple (LCM).  We practiced finding these using skip counting and creating factor lists.    
7B MATH - Students learned about the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) and Least Common Multiple (LCM).  We practiced finding these using skip counting and creating factor lists.

THURSDAY    
7C SCIENCE - Students learned about the roles of organisms in Ecosystems.  We reviewed what producers, consumers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, and detrivores are.  We also talked about the importance of decomposers in every food chain and web.    
7C MATH - Students learned about prime factorization today.  We reviewed what prime and composite numbers are.  We practiced how to create prime factor trees and (a new concept) and prime factor ladders.    
7B MATH - Students learned about prime factorization today.  We reviewed what prime and composite numbers are.  We practiced how to create prime factor trees and (a new concept) and prime factor ladders.

FRIDAY    
7B MATH - We practiced creating prime factor trees and learned about exponents.  We stressed that powers are how many times you multiply the base by itself.  34 = 3x3x3x3 = 81.    
7C MATH - We practiced creating prime factor trees and learned about exponents.  We stressed that powers are how many times you multiply the base by itself.  34 = 3x3x3x3 = 81. 
7C SCIENCE - Students reviewed the roles of organisms in ecosystems and we corrected worksheet 3 together.  Students then did two review online quizzes (5 questions each) to check their understanding of concepts.

SCIENCE - Students were introduced to our first unit, 'Interactions in the Environment".

THURSDAY    
7B MATH - Students worked on finding multiples of numbers through skip counting, we also looked at what the factors of a number mean.    
7C MATH - Students worked on finding multiples of numbers through skip counting, we also looked at what the factors of a number mean.    
7C SCIENCE - We looked at the different parts of an Ecosystem and what the five main characteristics of living things are.    

FRIDAY    
7C MATH - We corrected our worksheets 1,1 and 1.2 on Multiples and Factors.  Students learned about how we can use skip counting to find the LCM and how to use factor lists to find the GCF.
