Mrs. Reeg's Math Class News

Week of January 25, 2016

This Week In Math:

This past week we continued to practice division of fractions and story problems using multiplication and division of fractions. The students took their chapter 4 test on multiplying and dividing fractions. I am so pleased with the results, including some extra credit opportunities. This coming up week we are moving onto Ch. 5 on Algebra. The students will be learning how to recognize, read and write algebraic and numerical expressions. I will be joined this week by Mr. Hurtack (Gifted Intervention Specialist) and Mrs. Tatarunas (Technology Coach) for some co-teaching and math centers. Below I have included a video describing how to record a numerical expression as a written description.

Zeal Tutoring

I am very excited to announce that our 5th grade math classes have been chosen to be a part of a pilot program through an on-line intervention program called Zeal. Our students have been using Zeal in the classroom for a few months now, but the tutoring component is new to us. Zeal tutoring is an interactive tutoring program that allows students to practice classroom goals and get help from a live tutor when they need it. Students work with certified teachers who find and target student misconceptions. Below I have included a detailed family presentation from Zeal about the tutoring program. If you have specific questions related to the Zeal program, please don't hesitate to contact our Zeal representative, Mr. Robert Huizar at rhuizar@zeal.com
