Dear UMAC Parents,
Old Friends: This week our old friends worked hard on some challenging problems that are similar to ones that they will likely encounter on our PARCC testing next week! We also began unit 10. This unit focuses on pre-algebra concepts and skills. Students were introduced to this skill by solving a variety of pan-balance problems, which means making sure that a change to one side is compensated by a change to the other side.
New Friends: This week our new friends worked on renaming fractions as percents using a calculator and renaming decimals as percents. They were able to rename fractions as decimals by dividing, and then changing the decimal to a percent by multiplying it by 100. Next week, students will use estimation for multiplying decimals.
