Math

Daily Math Practice Set 15

We are working with fractions this unit. Adding and subtracting fractions are two of the main topics. We will also look at equivalent fractions and fractions that add up to 1 whole.

Multiplication.com, the site we have been using to test updated and a timed test isn't possible with the update. But, Mrs. Chambers found a button that says "Use old version" so after Christmas break, we will get back to our testing! So keep practicing!

New math logs will go home on Monday January 18th.
