**************************************************************************
We are continuing our unit on fractions. The state has changed the rules
for using a calculator. In the past, the students have been permitted to
use the keys on the calculator to do their fraction work. This is no
longer allowed. We will still use the calculators to do the addition,
subtraction, multiplication, and division work with fractions.
If you do not understand how we are doing the modeling of fractions,
please use the examples I give on the front page of our worksheets to help
you.
