Cougar Math

In Advanced Math we have finished multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers and are moving into division of fractions. The math department teaches division of fractions by starting with a deep understanding of the concept and model for the students using a number line method that finds common denominators before dividing (Monday's lesson). On Tuesday, we will divide mixed numbers and bridge this understanding with the method of multiplying the reciprocal to divide fractions.

Once again, we are focusing on a deeper understanding of the concept and appreciate your commitment to increasing the mathematical knowledge of your child.

Advanced Classes will be testing this Friday!

Regular Math Classes will be testing tomorrow.
