Math

Daily Math Practice Set 12

This week we are working on identifying different types of angles. We will use acute angles to build right angles. We will also be measuring angles with a protractor.

Multiplication Test on Friday! This will be our last 3 minute test over facts up to 3x9. Keep practicing facts! Math Study Log is Yellow and due 12/18!

In addition to fact practice, we are studying benchmark measurement and estimating measurement. Students have a study guide for this. They can make flashcards or have someone else quiz them. What ever works best for them to commit measurement to memory.

www.multiplication.com is a site we will use this year to help with practice! It can also be used nightly for multiplication log! It is so AWESOME to see scores go up as students are practicing! They should be very proud of themselves! Keep up the good work!
