### Scribe post january 28 2009

Today's class we worked on number of the day, 1269.584

Then Ordering Fractions Strategies.

1. Using landmarks, landmarks are things everybody should know.

eg. Let's meet at polo park.

I live near the forks.

bold words are landmarks

Fraction landmarks include:
1/10, 1/5, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 1/1

Practice: which is larger 11/15 or 7/10

Using our second strategy finding common denominators we see that 11/15 equals 22/30 and 7/10 equals 21/30. There for 11/15 is greater.

Third startegy is converting to decimals. Decimals are always over or out of one. So we follow the same steps as equivalent fractions only this time our equivalent fraction must be over 1.

For example: 3/5 converts to 0.6/1. We must divide 5 by 5 to have a denominator of 1. Therefor we must also divide the numerator by 5. So we get 3 divided by 5 equals 0.6

Things to remember a fraction is a part of a whole.

The line seperating the numerator and denominator means divided by.

I choose Jazzy as the next sribepost!

Err....... great job..... Robert?

Those are the exact notes we took down today. You only used one colour but highlighted the important words.

You could have included a photo and/or even a video.

Seriously..

Good job Robert! I like how you used examples. I think you should add a picture and some colour so it looks attractive. It was kind of boring when I read your scribe because there was hardly any colour in it. Good job again.
