We are starting Unit 5 this week. This unit covers fractions. We will begin with concepts such as greatest common factor, least common multiple, simplifying fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers. Math boxes for this unit will be due on December 17th, and the test will be on the 18th.
We finished up creating our characters and will continue to create our scene of Colonial Boston. We will also be researching events such as The French and Indian War, The Sons of Liberty, Taxation without Representation, Boston Tea Party, and the Boston Massacre. These events were significant to the American Revolution and aid in the understanding of the war.
