darie's scribe post for may16


OK! uhh...we learned about...triangles? and yeah...what was it called?

Right (angled) triangles

The Triangle















The relationship




NOTE:
- The hypotenuse is always a larger number and larger line than the altitude and base.
- You get the hypoenuse when you multiply altitude square plus base squared.

`dhona's growing post 2


This Post has been inducted into the Growing Post Hall of Fame


1.)

2.)

3.) I chose this site because it helps you understand how to multiply fractions. It gives you a lesson, then you can do it for yourself.

4.)


5.)The site I chose it similar to the one on top. It shows how to divide fractions and lets you try it out too.

6.) For 8-16 I chose Darie's cause when I was looking through earlier ago, she was the only one done. Also, her pictures are easy to understand.

For 8-17 I chose Myla's cause I liked her use of color and her pictures are easy to read.

nannalyns fraction post number 2

kk .. its upside down i know .. but at least its done . `n its prettyy orginized.


Number 7.
It's your mom's birthday today. You bought 4/7 of flowers for her. It took you an average 2 1/2 hours to earn enough money to buy these flowers.How much money did she raise?

kk i know it makes no sense but yea..?

I answered Katho's


Number 6.
Marielou's because she explained everything. And her pictures are nice and clear.

KATHO's because her picures are awesome. And because she explained things well . haha stalker!

Dylan's because he has cool pictures and he explianed things well.

Ingrid's because she REALLY explained everything PERFECTLY


NUMBER 5
dividing fractions. This is a good sight cuz it explains basically EVERYTHING about dividing fractions. It also teaches you other ways on how to divide. I also like it cuz its COLORFUL

NUMBER 4
when dividing fractions you have to flip the second fraction. then you just do the same rules for multiplying fractions. you jusst ALWAYS have to meememberr to FLIP the second fraction. for example 1/4 / 1/3 = 1/4 x 3/1 , 3/4
make sure EVERYTHING is in lowest terms. and if you're divding w/ mixed numbers juss do the same rules for multiplying and dont forget to flip the second fraction. and make sure your answer is a mixed fraction.



NUMBER 3
multiplying fractions. This is a good sight because it explains how to multiply fractions properly. It also has arrows and stuff so you dont get confused. Another good thing about it is that i like the colors :)

NUMBER 2
When you multiply fractions you just multiply the numerator by the numerator and the denominator by the denominator.
eg. 1/5 x 1/2 = 1/10. BECAUSE 1x1 = 1. and 5 x 2 = 10 . and this is in lowest terms already.
when multiplying w/ mixed fractions you first change it into an improper fraction first. then you multiply the same way. you then have to put it in lowest terms. BUT you cant leave the answer you have improper, you ALWAYS have to change it into a MIXED fraction. e.g 1 2/5 x 1 2/3 = 7/5 x 5/3 which equals to 35/15. now we have to make it in lowest terms which is 35/5 = 7. 15/5 =3 so you get 7/3. then we change it into mixed fraction.which is 2 1/3

Racquel's Fraction Growing Post # 2

1) Still working on this......AAH!!

2)When you multiply fractions, you end up having to multiply the numerator by the numerator and the denominator by the denominator.

E.G - 1 / 3 x 1 /2 = 1/6.
Your answer is 1 / 6 because you've multiplied the numerator by the numerator and the denominator by the denominator. (1x1=61 and 3x2 = 6).

Don't have paint or anything that I could use to make a picture with. So I just decided to use photobucket again....well, here's the link: My Pictorial Example for Multiplying Fractions.

3)How to Multiply Fractions - Here is a site that explains how to multiply fractions and how you can make your questions a lot easier. It also includes questions that you can try on your own to learn. Hope it helps.

4)When you divide fractions, you'd have to change the fraction into a multiplying question by using the recipricol (or however you spell it) of the fraction. Next, you would multiply them. Then change into a mixed number.

E.G - 3/4 DIVIDED BY 1/3. 1/3 would become 3/1 because you have to use the recipricol and then you'd multiply it after. SO 3 / 4 x 3 / 1 = 9/4 (changed into a mixed number would be) = 2 1/4.

...and photobucket again. So here's the link: My Pictorial Example for Dividing Fractions.


5) How to Divide Fractions - this site explains how to divide the fractions and why simplifying is important when getting your answer. They've also left you some questions you can try out once you've understood the steps of dividing fractions. I hope this is helpful enough.

6)I chose Yvanne's growing post because the pictures she made really explains well, in detail, everything about fractions and stuff. :) I like the pictures! And I went to Katho's growing post because her pictures also explain well. And they're perfect sized as well. And third, I chose Deannia's post because it really has some good explanation about multiplying and dividing fractions and last but not least, chose Camy's growing post because she has both excellent pictures and explanation! :)

7) It's your friend's birthday and she received 30 dollars on her birthday from her mom. You gave her 1/2 the money that her mom had given her. Another friend had given her 1/5 the money that her mother gave her. How much money did you and the other friend gave her altogether and how much of each did you and that friend give?
-
-
...aaand answered Marielou's question! Lol nice question Marielou! I have an answer of 5/7 left, including the chocolate you have left and the one in your hand. You had a chocolate bar of 7 pieces, yes. You took 4/7 off of it and so you have 3/7 left of the chocolate bar remaining and then I came sneaking around and snatched 2/7 pieces off your hand (lol haha) and then ran off with it. So you have 2/7 because 4-2=2. And then you have left over 3/7. Add your 2/7 to 3/7 and you have 5/7 left. Yea I'm right, right? x] You can find her question HERE!

ALMOST..DONE...NEEED....1....QUESTION....MORE!!!!

Arielle's Fraction Growing Post Part 2

Okay. Here we go again. Time for blogger.

Number One. (still a lot more to go)

I am not to sure on this one but oh well. I hope i did it right.

















Number Two.

What happens when you multiply fractions? Use both a numerical and pictorial example to show our understanding of this concept.



















oOoOoOo purple.

Number Three.

Click here to see the link. That site helps you understand how to multiply fraction's together and it also show's some examples. This site also helped me and there is even this thing at the bottom that can convert fraction's to mixed fraction's. at least i think so.

Number Four! (almost done. YAY!)

What happens when you divide fractions? Use both numerical and pictorial example to shouw our understanding of this concept.



















haha your not scared of purple anymore darie? *sigh* oh well.

Number Five.

Click here to see the site. Well, this site helps us divide fractions. (duh) I picked this one cause it has examples and it showed me a better word that means flip or upside down. haha now i know it's INVERT. i forgot about that word...

Number Six.

Hmmm....who should i pick. haha i nominate:

Room 8-16- MYSELF! haha joke. not me. eww.. haha i pick (this is hard so i flipped a coin) And the winner is...
DARIE! i picked her cause she won the coin toss and her images are creative (yet scary. i don't like dolls. ) and she explained everything quite clear.

Room 8-73- who else but
Aldrin! i picked him cause his images hypnotized me to vote for him.
haha kidding. his images were very intresting and flashy. he also explained things clear with many pictures.

Room 8-17 - i picked
Katho because her pictures were nice and clear.

Room 8-41- i picked
Tyler because his pictures blinded my eyes like aldrins. And...he explained steps to dividing and multiplying fractions well. Plus he gives good advice. (ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE YOU EAT PIE. IF YOU DON"T YOU MAY GET A DISEASE!!) yeah. good to know.

ANYWAY! NUMBER 7!

Okay. lets see. You and your 3 other friends decide to help an old lady paint her fence. All of you divide the fence in fourths but you all want to paint a different portion. Your friend Bill wants to paint 3/8 of the fence while Jerry wants to paint 2/8. That leaves you and Albert Mc Fee. Albert Mc Fee decides to paint 1/4 of the fence. How much of the fence do you have left to paint. (LOL i don't think that makes much sense. but it make sense to me. :D) Maybe a picture will help.















Haha my picture looks so weird. I was too lazy to draw clothes on the other people so yeah. And you have a hat to hide your hair so it could be a guy or a girl. Smart hey. haha not really but whatever.

And i did Helens question.

AND I AM DONE! YES! FINALLY! THAT TOOK ME FOREVER! Now i will leave. BYE! *runs away*

Marielou's Fraction Growing Post 2


Number 1















Number 2
When you multiply fractions, you multiply the numerator times the numerator and the denominator times the denominator.
for example:
1/3 x 1/5= 2/15
the answer is 2/15, because you have to multiply the numerators and the denominators.
1x1=2 and 3x5= 15
Number 3
this website helps explain how to multiply fractions. it explains it in and easy way and also shows you how to use cross reduction to make your question easier . when you under stand, they give you a couple of questions, and you can try to answer them. i hope this helps! =)

Number 4
when you divide fractions you just have to flip over the second fraction (put the numerator where the denominator is and the denominator where the numerator is) , then multiply.
for example:
1/2 divided by 2/3=3/4
because you have to "flip" the second fraction, then multiply. so 1/2 divided by 2/3 would become 1/2 x 3/2, then simply multiply.
its juss like harbeck said "yours is not to reason why, just invert and multiply"
now for my picture....... dont rly know how to out in a picture, but i understand how to divide it... heheh ohkay here i go.....















hope i did that right.

Number 5
i found this website that helps shows you how to divide fractions. just like the other on it show you how to use cross reduction to make the question easier. hope it helps =)

Number 6
the people i pick are..........
8-16: helen! =) i chose helen because her post explains it very well, and her pictures explain it properly too!!! heheh
8-17: katho!! i chose katho because her pictures are nopt to small not too big, so we can see what in side them. she also explains mutiplying and dividing fractions well =)
8-41: DYLAN!!!! heheheheh i chose dylans post becausei like the explanations and his questions
8-73: camy!! i chose camy because her post explains all tjhe things we need to know about adding, subtracting fractions, and slo equivalent and simplifying fractions

Number 7

Marielou had a chocolate bar her it had 7 equal pieces. Marielou took off 4/7 of that chocolate bar and 3/7 were left. She was goinf to eat it but all of a sudden Racquel came and snatched 2/7 of the chocolate marielou had in her hand, that she took from the chocolate bar. Then Racquel ate it and ran away. How much chocolate does marielou have all together?

*hahahah i know that question didnt make any sense lol.. i unno i couldn't think of anything.. heheh anyways...... al least im DONE!!!! oh yea and i did darie's =)

I hope this is right lol.

L 2. What happens when you multiply fractions? Use both a numerical and pictorial example to show our understanding of this concept.

What happens? When you multiply 2 fractions all you do is multiply the numerator with the other numerator and then you multiply the denominator with the other denominator. and there it is! Heres an example.

Also! To multiply a fraction by a whole number, write the whole number as an improper fraction with a denominator of 1, then multiply as fractions. Heres an example.

You can use diagrams, words, symbols to show your understanding.(copy the picture into your post and change it as you see fit!!) Give a brief description of the process you took to create the new diagram.

^ ^ This one is 4/5 , which is equal to 25/30.



i made the one on the bottom wrong so im doing it again. But then Mr.Harbeck said to leave that there...haha


Brief description: All I had to do was make two groups of 5. But it said that it's 9/5 . That's why i made two. 5/5 and 4/5 makes 9/5...is that right??






---------------------------------------------------


2. What happens when you multiply fractions? Use both a numerical and pictorial example to show our understanding of this concept.

When you multiply fractions , all you have to do is multiply the numerator to the numerator and denominator to denominator.

3. Find a website or blog that shows you how to multiply fractions. Create a link to this fraction site (highlight a word you want to be a link, click the link button, paste your url into the pop up that appears). Be sure to leave a brief 3 sentence description to the site.

this link is so cool. it tells you how to multiply fractions easily. There are also links here to see how to add, subract and divide fractions too. There are pictures here too to show you how to multiply. Just like what Harbeck did.

---------------------------------------------------

4. What happens when you divide fractions? Use both a numerical and pictorial example to show our understanding of this concept.

When you divide fractions, you have to switch the second fraction or the reciprocal. Then, you just multiply the numerator to the numerator and the denominator to the denominator. If it can be reduced to a lower term, then reduce it. If it's an improper fraction, make it into a mixed fraction.



Ummm...I don't know if i did the pictorial right...

Jewelry's Fraction Growing Posts

1) To change fractions into lowest terms, you must divide both the top & bottom number by the same numbers. For example:

4/6 in lowest terms would be 2/3 because you would divide both top & bottom number by 2. So 4/6 (4 divided by 2 , 6 divided by 2) in lowest terms would be 2/3. You need to find the largest number you can find that you can divide evenly into both the top and bottom number and you got your lowest term fraction.

2) A mixed number is just another way of expressing a larger fraction (when the numerator is larger than the denominator's value). For example: 5/3 is an example of an improper fraction. The numerator is larger than the denominator and can be changed into a mixed number. The answer to 5/3 in a mixed number would be 1 and 2/3. To find out how to get the answer, you have 5/3. Since you have a denominator of 3, you take 3 away from 5 (numerator) and now you have 3/3 which makes your whole number = 1. Now you have 2/3 left over. Since 5-3=2, you have 2/3 left. Just add it to your whole number and now you have 1 and 2/3. Hope you get what I tried explaining to you.

3) How to Express Fractions on Lowest Terms -This site just helps you to do fractions in their lowest terms.

4) a) Jewelry was hungry. She walked into her kitchen and found 8/4 pieces of a chocolate bar on the table. Her brother gave her 2/4 pieces of his chocolate bar to her. How many pieces did she find?
b) Jewelry decided to bake a pie. She decided to bake 2 and 4/6 pieces of pie. After she was done, she gave 2/6 pieces of pie to her brother and 1 and 1/6 pieces of pie to her mother. How much pie did she have left?

5) I went to Annalyn's, Laramae's and Michael S.'s posts

thoken's growing post




2.)how are improper fraction and mixed numbers the same?:
Improper fractions and mixed fractions are the same bcuz you can turn a mixed fraction into an improper fraction. And they also have the same value. To turn a mixed fraction into an improper fraction you multiply the denominator by the whole number and whatever is left over in the numerator you add to your improper fraction. ex. 10/5 so that means

3.)find a website or blog that explains how to create equivalent fractions or write fractions in lowest terms. Create a link to it and a brief description of what the site has to offer

4 .a.) write a word problem that involves adding these two fractions with denominators of fourths and thirds and your answer is an improper fraction.

4. b) is write a word problem that involves subtracting two mixed numbers

5.)
go to three peoples growing posts and answer their fraction problems by leaving comments. One of the three people cannot be from your homeroom

6.) find a website or blog that explains how to add or subtract fractions. Create a link to it and a breif description of what the site has to offer

nannalyns fraction growing post.







2. how are improper fractions and mixed numbers the same?
improper and mixed fractions are the same cuz you can make a mixed fraction into an improper fraction. and they also have the same value. juss like dhona said. to make a mixed fraction into an improper fraction you multiply the denominator by the whole number and whatever is left in the numerator u add to your improper fraction. eg. 2 1/5 soo that means . 5 x 2 = 10 . then we have one more left so thats 11 . so your improper fraction is 5/11 . and in an improper fraction the numerator is always bigger than the denominator.

3.http://www.321know.com/g8_66hx1.htm
this is a cool link cuz you can learn how to make the fraction in simplest terms. and you can also practice and yea.

The questions that I made.
4. a.Dhona bought 1/4 of chocolate and 1/3 of bubble gum. How much food did dhona buy?

2. How are improper fractions and mixed numbers the same ?
A mixed number is a whole number and a fraction together. An
improper fraction is when the numerator has more parts than the denominator. They are the same becasue you can easily convert an improper fraction to a mixed number and a mixed number to an improper fraction.

e.g. mixed number to improper fraction

improper to mixed







3. This site http://www.webmath.com/redfract.html will help you reduce fractions. You enter your fraction and it reduces it in lowest terms and if you don't get how they did it, they will explain the process so you can do it yourself.

4. A) There is an assembly at a school and 2/3 of the students in class A is going join 3/4 of the students in class B in the auditorium. How many students are there altogether ?
B) Jayson made a 2 and 3/4 cake, then Mark accidentally ate 1 and 1/3 of the cake. How much cake is left?

5. i did ralph's, arielle's and korina's from 8-17.

6. This site
http://www.math.com/school/subject1/lessons/S1U4L3DP.html teaches adding and subtracting fractions well in a fun and educational way. try it !!

Racquel's Fractions Growing Post

Question Number 1:

To express a fraction in lowest terms, you need to divide the top number and the bottom number by the same number. For example:

4/8 reduced to a much lower, but equivalent fraction would be 2/4 because you could divide the numerator, which is the top number, and the denominator, which is the botom number by 2. So if you divide 4 by 2, it would be 2 and if you divided 8 by 2, you would get 4. So if you divide 4/8 (BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM NUMBER) by 2, you wouled get 2/4. However, 2/4, also read 2 fourths, isn't the lowest term for 4/8. To find the lowest term from the fraction given to you, divide your fraction, both top and bottom number by the largest number you can find that wouled divide equally into it, you've got your lowest term. Here's the actual lowest term for 4/8: 4/8 divided by 2 equals 2/4. You can divide 2/4 by another 2. So 2/4 divided by 2 equals 1/2. You can't go any lower than 1/2. So 1/2 is your lowest term. (I hope I explained this properly).
Question Number 2:
Improper fractions and mixed numbers are the same because a mixed number is just another way of writing a fraction whose numerator is larger than the denominator. For example: 7/5 is an improper fraction. See how the numerator is larger than the denominator? The answer to 7/5 would be 12/5. I bet you're wondering..."how did you get this answer?" Well it's simple. To change an improper fraction, you need to find how many pieces fit into the denominator itself. 7/5...take a look at this improper fraction closely and think. 5/5 make a whole , so you have 1. The left remaining is 2 because 7-5= 2. You used 5 to make a whole. 5/5 is now gone. So, you got 2/5 left and 1<-(Your whole number). Put them together and you have 12/5. (I hope I explained this properly as well.)
Question Number 3:
Now there's a site where you can learn to find out how to reduce fractions to their lowest terms. You can also try the questions given to you from that site. I hope this site helps other people as well.
Question Number 4:
a) One Saturday morning, Racquel and Marielou decided to go on a trip to Korea. Both carried with them a checklist to figure out what they've completed so far. Racquel completed 2/3 of her list so far and Marielou completed 2/4 of her list so far. How many things have they packed all together?
b) Racquel's class was having a potluck at school one day. She had decided to bring some pizza. She had decided to bring 3 and 5/8 of pizza (3 whole pizzas and 5 pieces out of 8 slices of pizza). She gave Marielou 4/8 pieces and Teara 5/8 pieces. The teacher decided to take 1 and 2/8 pieces and give some to the other teachers. How much pizza was left remaining?
Question Number 5
I went to Marielou's Annalyn's and Josh's Growing Posts.
