STEM in the Classroom!
The partial products method of multiplication as well as the lattice method was introduced for both 1 and 2 digit multipliers. Students understand the importance of learning new algorithms, but also know they may choose whichever method they are most comfortable with on quizzes and tests. Feel free to check out some examples of each method below!
Students practiced reading, writing and comparing large numbers in the base 10 place value system. Mathematicians discussed sensible ways of reporting a count when counting a large number of items. For example, Phillies home game attendance rates! We spent some time preparing for our Unit 5 assessment by taking a practice test and working in small groups to review concepts.
