Below you will find information for all math groups for this coming week. Please scroll down to your child's math level (they are in order and color coded - 4.1 is green, 4.2 is purple, and 5.1 is grey).
4.1 Math Curriculum- Unit 3: Fraction Equivalents
- Students will review what a fraction is, as well as the main parts of a fraction (numerator and denominator) and what they represent in relation to the whole
- Students will learn the foundational skills to determine when fractions are equivalent to one another.
- Students will learn the different ways to represent a fraction
denominator, equivalent fractions, numerator, greatest common factor, simplest form, least common multiple, benchmark fractions,
4.1 Standards for Unit 2:
*Focus standards of the week are bolded
4.NF.1 - Explain why two or more fractions are equivalent by using visual fraction models. Focus attention on how the number and size of the parts differ.
4.NF.2 - Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, by using visual fraction models, by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, <, or = and justify the conclusion.
4.1 Homework for the Week:
- Tuesday (11/15/16) - Workbook pages 511-513
- Thursday (11/17/16) – Workbook pages 509-510
- Friday (11/18/16) - Weekly standards quiz on 4NF1
4.2 Math Curriculum: Unit 6 - Geometry
- Students will focus on the lines of symmetry in 2D figures.
- Important Vocabulary include:
- point, ray, line, line segment, parallel, perpendicular, intersecting, angle, acute angle, right angle, and obtuse angle, symmetry
- Students will demonstrate their understanding of lines of symmetry by finding symmetry within the letters of their names, manipulating pattern blocks, and creating half-symmetrical pictures to have a classmate complete.
- Students will take a standards quiz this Friday covering 4G3. See below.
4.2 Standards for Unit 5:
*All standards in BOLD will be a focus.
Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.
4.G.1 - Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
4.G.2 - Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
4.G.3 - Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
4.2 Homework for the Week:
- Tuesday (11/15/16) - Worksheet covering all three standards
- Thursday (11/10/16) - IXL Can do any from X1-X5
- Friday (11/11/28/16)- Weekly Standards Quiz (4G3-symmetry)
5.1 Math Curriculum - Unit 3: Multiplying and Dividing Decimals
- Students will be multiplying decimals by whole numbers, using repeated addition as a strategy to check their work.
- Students will be multiplying decimals by decimals, and understanding who multiplying decimals is different than addition and subtraction (when placing the decimal in the answer)
- Previewing multiplying decimals using a visual model (grid)
dividend, division, divisor, exponent, factor, measurement division (or repeated subtraction), multiple , multiplier, partial products, partition/partitive division (or fair-sharing) , place value, power of ten, product, quotient, remainder
5.1 Standards for Unit 1:
*Focus standards of the week are bolded
5.NBT.2 - Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10
5.NBT.7 - Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
5.1 Homework for the Week:
- Tuesday (11/15/16) - Multiplying Decimals WS
- Thursday (11/17/16) - IXL I8 (preview for next week) & I9
- Friday (11/18/28/16)- Weekly standards quiz on 5NBT7 (multiplication only)
We hope that you have a great week!
