Math CBA for Cluster 2

The Math CBA for Cluster 2 will take place Tuesday, Dec. 15. The CBA will cover topics covered in Cluster 2: Area and Perimeter, Decomposing Fractions, Equivalent Fractions, Comparing Fractions, Estimating Fractions and Adding and Subtracting Fractions. Multi-step word problems will also be included as this is a problem solving concept that we work on throughout the year.

Students can use any handouts from class, graded work from Thursday folders, and math journals to review and study.

In lieu of their required homework of 15 minutes of Think Through Math, students can use that time to study and prepare for the CBA.
