Math - Fraction Unit 1 Test

We are wrapping up our learning about Fractions. Unit 1 learning has been making equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, and adding and subtraction fractions with unlike denominators. The real world problems utilize these sills when solving. The tests came home in the Monday folder today. A "2" or "1" in an area means more practice. Moby Max, Think Central, and Khan Academy are options. Students will be starting to set up accounts for Khan Academy on Thursday.

The next unit involves place value and decimals to the thousandths. At the end of the unit, students will be able to understand that decimals are equal divisions of a whole. They will furthering their fourth grades skills to round, estimate, add, and subtract decimals to the thousandths place value position.

Think Central

This is the online component to our Math Expressions book.
