Thanksgiving week:

Monday: Thanksgiving Math work...logic puzzles, conversions, etc.

Tuesday: No Math Field Trip to "Wonder"

No School Wednesday-Friday

Week of Nov. 27-Dec 1 We are using the standard algorithm for long-division. This is the way you and I learned to do division!

Monday: Module 2 Lesson 23: Students will divide three and four digit dividends by two digit divisors resulting and two and three digit quotients.

Example: 4,859 divided by 23 = 211

Tuesday: Module 2 Lesson 24 Students will divide decimal dividends by multiples of 10, reasoning about the placement of the decimal point.

Example: 14.7 divided by 7. Students should think of it as 14 tenths divided by 7 = 2 tenths or 0.2

Wednesday: Module 2 Lesson 25: Students will use basic facts to approximate (estimate) decimal quotients with two-digit divisors, reasoning about the placement of the decimal point.

Example: 3.24 divided by 82. The estimate would be 320 hundredths divided by 80 = 4 hundredths or 0.04

Thursday: Module 2 Lesson 26: Students will divide decimal dividends by two-digit divisors, estimating quotients, and reasoning about the placement of the decimal point.

Example: 36.14 divided by 13 = 2.78

Friday: Either review if we need it or start Module 2 Lesson 27: Students will divide decimal dividends by two-digit divisors estimating quotients and reasoning about the placement of the decimal point.

If you are looking at videos, Nov. 27-Dec. 1 we are working on module 2, Lessons 23-26, possibly 27. There are 29 lessons in this module so the test will be after lesson 29 and a day or two of review.

Parents: I know that the math we are doing this year can be a little confusing. Therefore I am including this link to videos that show how each lesson is to be done. There is a short 7-18 minute video explaining each lesson. It will help you see what your child is doing in school and is good review at home each evening for your student. To get a menu of videos, click Here . Typically I give math homework every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. I do not give homework on Friday's because I want students to relax on the weekend. It is fine with me if students only spend 20 minutes on math homework each evening. If they are unable to finish in twenty minutes I would like them to have a parent sign the paper so I know they did work for at least twenty minutes.
