What's Going on in Math + Science
Our math class has been learning how to use and represent whole numbers through the millions place value. We will also be working on adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers. You can expect to see homework that provides practice with naming numbers in different ways, as well as rounding and estimating greater numbers. Here is a sample of how your child will be taught to write numbers in different forms.
