Students will be able to solve real world and mathematical problems containing rational numbers.

See the fruits of your laborâ¦time to test on rational numbers!

**Opener: **As students enter the room, they will sit down and have 5 minutes to review their notes, discuss with their table, and ask me questions.

**Learning Target: **After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. In today’s lesson, the intended targets are, “I can solve a variety of mathematical and real world problems involving rational numbers.” Students will jot the learning target down in their agendas (our version of a student planner, there is a place to write the learning target for every day).

**Rational Numbers Unit Test: **The test consists of 20 multiple choice questions, utilizing **Mastery Connect**. Eventhough today's lesson consists of a test, the mathematical practices still come into play. The questions on the test tie in real world problems (**mathematical practice 4**) which require that the students reason quantitatively and abstractly (**mathematical practice 2**). As with all signed numbers, precision and attention to signs is very important (**mathematical practice 6**). ** **
