Required Vocabulary for MYP1   The student needs to master every word on the list below.  The list includes a working vocabulary.  That means the student needs to know the meaning of the word or phrase and how to apply it if it indicates some kind of action (for example the word solve).  Working vocabulary words or phrases are in bold.  New words and phrases will constantly be added to the list.   Numbers   natural number  counting number  factor   factor(s) of  multiple(s) of  whole number   integer   rational number   real number  fraction  numerator  denominator  reduce by ___  reduce to lowest terms  expand by __  proper fraction  improper fraction  mixed number  simplify  write as a mixed number  common denominator  least common denominator  decimal number  whole part  decimal part  place value Arithmetic operations  Add, Find the sum  Subtract, Find the difference  Multiply, Find the product  Divide, Find the quotient, Find the ratio  Find __ to the __ power, How much is __ to the index of __  Evaluate (a numerical expression) Geometry  point  line form(s)  segment  ray  line  angle  side of an angle  vertex  triangle  side of a triangle  perimeter  area  Find the perimeter  Find the area of the rectangle  Find the area of the triangle Graphing  graph (noun, meaning picture representing data)  graph (verb, meaning draw a graph)  number line  x-axis  y-axis  origin  draw/mark a point  draw/mark a point (on graph paper)  T-chart  Evaluate y for x = (some number)  Find y when x = (some number) Problem Solving  What is the question?  What is the situation?  What is the same problem in simpler or more personal terms?  What is the data?  Presentation Form
 Mathematics for the Intuitive Learner Math 6 (MYP1) Everyone, please read the note at the bottom of the home page! Week of November 3 (and after) The class is taught in strands.  Each class period, the students are presented two to three topics (strands) that are not mutually dependent.  In other words, they don't need to know one subject to understand the other one.This approach avoids boredom and brain meltdown.  It also allows me to revisit each topic more frequently, giving the students more opportunities to ask questions and catch on.
 Current Topics We are beginning to work on arithmetic table skills.Students should be fluent in their intuitive knowledge to the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.This will continue most of this nine week period. This week we will be finishing all review of addition and subtraction rules for decimal numbers.  The class should be able to work ANY of the following problems:  page 199: 8 - 16 We should also be finishing up multiplication of decimal numbers.  The class should be able to work ALL problems on p. 207: 1 - 12. We will be starting serious fraction work.  See the following problem sets:  Pages 147,8: 2-4; page 152: 4, 5
 Completed Topics Arithmetic:Adding, subtracting whole numbers efficiently.* Geometry:Vocabulary to describe shapes - Level I:Point, Segment, Ray, Line, Angle, Triangle, Quadrilateral, Pentagon, Hexagon, Octagon, PolygonVocabulary to describe triangles - Level 1:Vertex, Vertices, Angle, SideMeasuring Angles with a Protractor Graphing:Plotting points onto a two-axis Cartesian graph. __________________________________*efficiently is used here to mean without the usual written-out carryings, borrowings and various others thinking steps traditional to grade-school arithmetic.
