Currently in Mathematics:
We are currently in Unit 3: Operations with Decimals and Fractions
We begin with a review of place value and whole number operations. We then analyze how multiplying or dividing a number by a power of ten (greater than 1 or less than 1) affects its value.
Students will practice the traditional algorithms for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with decimals. They will also practice word problems involving such operations.***The IXL Math computer program is an excellent resource for students to strengthen weak areas, as well as to challenge them in areas in which they do well! Additionally, students earn extra credit points on their report card grade when they accrue hours on IXL over the course of a marking period!
****Please have your child practice on IXL Math at home whenever possible!****
