## SESSION 6 18 SEPTEMBER 2017

In the last session, I could feel my kids easing up to me as they were cracking more jokes
and opening up about their outside lives. I learned that half of my kids attended MTAP
sessions every Saturday to enhance their skills in math. (This is probably why theyre Hi-
Ho!)
CONTEXT/ Learning this made me feel lazy as a student. Not only did they attend school five times a
TUTOR'S
REFLECTION week (and tutoring once a week), but they also attended enrichment classes for math. This
motivates me to exemplify Magis more often. I mean, if these kids can do more than what
they are asked to do, then why cant I? In a way, my tutees were more Atenean than I was.
They were striving for more without knowing that that certain practice is put in such high
regards here in Ateneo.

## LESSON NO. &

TOPIC LESSON NO. 5: DIVIDING DECIMALS USING MENTAL MATH

OPENING Panginoon, tulungan niyo po kami ngayon upang matuto po kami sa pagdi-divide ng decimals gamit
PRAYER ng mental math lamang. Amen.

I will ask for their homework and spend some time (around 7 minutes) checking and going through
each problem. I will use my whiteboard to explain again how to divide decimals using long division
SHORT REVIEW if I see to it that my students have forgotten the lesson already.

The students will be divided into two teams. I will flash basic division problems on flashcards
(i.e. 40 20).
Whichever team can say the right answer first will win a point.
MOTIVATION/
HOOK This will show them the fun behind mental math and being able to solve problems in their
Hopefully, this will motivate them into learning how to divide decimals in their head which
should be the same thing as dividing whole numbers, just with decimal points to think about
now.

The first 3 minutes will be used to greet the students, prepare the materials, and to start off with the opening
prayer. The next 7 minutes will be used for the short review which will be spent by reviewing the homework
I gave them last week on dividing decimals using long division. The motivational game after this will take
only 8 minutes; 2 minutes to explain and sample the game and 6 more minutes for the game itself. The next
15 minutes will be a step-by-step lesson type teaching them how to divide 2 different decimals using mental
LESSON
PROPER
math. Essentially, this is done by forgetting the existence of the decimal point, and dividing the 2 numbers
as if they were whole numbers. For example, 0.4 0.2 would be 40 20 as the significant numbers are
both in the tenths decimal places (meaning we can look at them as tens). 40 20 is 2 as 0.4 0.2 is
also 2. The next 6 minutes will be used for them to answer a worksheet to see if they fully understand the
lesson on dividing decimals using mental math. The last 6 minutes will be to check the worksheet and go
over the problems they do not understand, assign the homework, and end with a closing prayer.
