Math Update

Week of January 11th

This Week in Math

This week we'll continue to practice fraction computation. Through learning centers, independent practice and small group instruction, students will continue to work toward mastery of this multi-step skill. Quizzes will be given over the new two weeks to determine student progress. Meanwhile, we'll begin a new unit on graphing starting with line graphs - graphs that show change over a period of time. Students will generate a question, collect data, construct a graph, and plot up to six data points. Extension activities include using the online program, Create-A-Graph.

Homework

Just a reminder that homework is now completed daily. Our first (partial) week went very well - 95% of students were prepared each day. Let's shoot for 100% this week! Thank you for all of your support at home!
