Math with Mrs. Johnson
They learned how to model and multiply with fractions. They have been modeling really well. I am really impressed with how quick they picked up on it. Next, they will learn how to model and divide with fractions. This will wrap up our unit on fraction operations. I will not test on this unit until the week of the 19th. I like to work more problems and increase their confidence and accuracy before testing.
