Students are now finishing the lesson on solving word problems with more than one step.  We are now beginning a cumulative review of units 1,2, and 3.    There will be a cumulative test following the completion of the cumulative review.   Good Luck Everyone!!!
Students are now finishing the lesson focused on long division and have explored various ways to solve these problems.   The next unit will involve solving word problems.  It is important to make sure that each word problem is read carefully and more than once before an attempt is made at solving.  Remember, it is not how fast you get there but if you do at all!!   Mr. Henderson
Students have started the next unit in Math "Dividing A Three digit Number by A One Digit Number".  The strategies used for this method are traditional steps and strategies.  New strategies on solving these problems will be explored in the coming days!   Good Luck Everyone!!
Students have started the next chapter in Math "Estimating Quotients".  It is important that students practice and model to their parents the specific Math strategies that have been explored to date.  Modelling to parents will build confidence in their ability to use the strategy not only in Math class but in the real world.   Strategies include: 1.  Double and Take Half. 2.  Rounding to make compatible numbers. 3.  Eleven Strategy. 4.  Compensation when estimating. 5.  Expanded form to create multiplication facts.(Two digit by two digit multiplication)   Please take the time to ask your child about the strategies described above.   Mr. Henderson
