Today we are going to convert fractions into decimals and vice versa. A key to converting fractions into decimals are knowing the magic numbers that get your denominator to be 100. For example, to get to 100 with 2, we need to multiply it by 50. We will be discussing more magic numbers today.

Today, we will be finishing up on our clocks. We will be talking about how to write notes so make sure to bring your notebook. After this, we will be doing an activity on Multiplying double-digit numbers.
Notes: How To Write Notes
Meyer: Finish Clock Project
Gregory: No Homework
You will be doing a project for the next few days that will consist of creating a clock that replaces the digits with mathematical problems. Once you have created your problems and have had them approved by two classmates, you will be given a paper clock and replace the digits with the problems. You will be given time to draw inside your clocks, so be creative and have fun!
