Classification of numbers flow chart:
Classification of Numbers.pdf

To do:
1. Redraw the flow chart for number classification - the one you took a picture of in class. If you have not taken a picture and talked to me about needing a hard copy of the flow chart, skip this item on the "To do" list for now.
2. Complete the pink handout and check your answers here:

FMPC10 Answers for pink exponent sheet.pdf
3. Coplete the second page of the note package: 1. Simplify. Check your answers here.
FMPC10 Integral exponents notes and examples.pdf
4. Create cue cards that summarize the laws of exponents. Have one cue card for each law. Use the chart given on the first page of the package 4.2 Integral Exponents KEY IDEAS
FMPC10 4.2 Integral Exponents Key Ideas.pdf
5. Copy the Examples a),b) and c) from the package 4.2 Integral Exponents KEY IDEAS that are given on page 66 and explained on page 66 and 67. Copy both methods for each example and observe the differences. Use a calculator for the evaluation part in a) and c). Always evaluate AFTER simplifying. These examples have to be part of your notes.
6. E-mail me if you need clarification of help.

September 1: Real number system and prime factorization quiz. Using prime factorization to determine the greatest common factor (GCF).

To do:
1. Ensure that you are all caught up making cue cards assigned earlier. Orgnize your cue cards - you will need them later.
2. Finish examples in the Prime Factorization - theorem and applications handout (portion D). Use the answer key given below to check your work.
3. Practice more using the white handout given in class (Finding LCM and GCF). If you would like to earn marks on this assignment you can hand it in on Thursday. You can check your answers here: You need to show all work to earn marks for this.

4. Mandatory Assignment - given in class in green (Finding LCM and GCF). This assignment is due for marks on Thursday.
A copy of the mandatory assignment can be found here:
FMPC10 Finding LCM and GCF green.pdf
5. On a separate sheet of paper you can give a detailed solution to the puzzle on top of the green handout ("How many squares in this picture?") A correct, organized and well-explained solution will earn you marks in a problem-solving category.

August 28: Prime Factorization continued - Theorem and appications.
The blank note package can be found here:

FMPC10 Prime Factorization - theorme and applications.pdf

Answers to the note package can be found here:

FMPC10 Prime Factorization - theorem and applications Answers.pdf

To do:

1. Ensure that the first 8 pages of the note package are completed. Use the anwers posted above to check your work.
2. E-mail me if you have questions or need more help.
3. Create cue cards: 1 cue card with square numbers from 0 to 400 , 1 cue card with cube numbers from 0 to 3375
and 1 cue card with the definition of the least common multiple (you can google, but it is always best to reword what you find on the internet in such a way that you fully understand the definition and can remember its meaning).
4. Study using your notes and cue cards. There will be a quiz next week on Real number system and on Prime factorization with applications. You will be allowed to use your cue cards during the quiz.

August 26: Quiz on Math 9 topics. Prime numbers and Prime Factorazition - notes, definitions and examples.
To do:
1. Finish the practice questions for primefactorization given in class. Check your answers here: FMPC10 Prime Factorization practice answers.pdf
