Math

ENVISIONS MATH

The math concept for Topic 7 is Mental Subtraction and students will be required to mentally subtract mulitples of 10 from a two digit number, finding parts of 100, adding on to subtract, and use a hundred chart to subtract 2 digit numbers. The problem solving concept will be missing or extra information.


Again this is a quick topic, and we will be taking our Topic 7 test before Winter Break so that the information is still fresh in students' minds!
