My math students are working on area and perimeter.
I wanted to inform you that the first part of ISTEP is problem solving. They will be doing multiple-step problems and explaining in words how they did the problem. They are able to use ANY math strategy that works for them, as long as they show their work and their explanation makes sense. Every day, in math, your child works on a problem of the day (every class does the same problem). Please ask your child to see the problem solving packet on Fridays. The problems were created to match ISTEP. It will give you a good idea about the skills they will be expected to know and how rigorous the test will be.
Please make sure your child is practicing their math facts at home. Addition 0-12, Subtraction 0-12, and Multiplication 0-12. I suggest using Flashcards, Flash to Pass (App.), or print free pages online. We give the students 50 problems to complete in 3 minutes. If you need to know what your child is working on, send me an email.
