Friday was the end of the first grading period! It's hard to believe we are one fourth done with the year! Report cards will be available on Oct. 25!
Monday: Module 2 Lesson 10: Students will multiply decimal fractions with tenths by multi-digit whole numbers using place value understanding to record parital products.
Example: 22 x 2.4 We would encourage them to calculate 22 x 24 tenths. They should get 528 TENTHS, which is 52.8
Tuesday: Module 2 Lesson 11: Students will multiply decimal fractions by multi-digit whole numbers through conversion to a whole number problem and reasoning about the placement of the decimal.
Example: 1.38 x 32. They can just multiply 138 x 32, which gives them 4416. They then need to reason that they had 138 hundredths, so they now have 4416 hundredths. 44.14
Wednesday: Module 2 Lesson 12 Students will reason about the product of a wholenumber and a decimal with hundredths using place value enderstanding and estimation.
Example: 24 x 2.31 Students will multiply 24 x 231 and get 5544. They will use their understanding of place value to know that is 5544 hundredths, which is written 55.44 They can also used estimation. 24 x 2 = 48 Therefore they know the ansswer can't be in the thousands or hundreds.
Thursday: Module 2 Lesson 13: Students will use whole number multliplicaton to express equivalent measurements.
Example: Conversions!!!! 9.2 meters = _________ cm.
Process: 9.2 x 1 meter
= 9.2 x 100 centimeters
= 920 centimeters
Friday: Review day
If you are looking at videos, we are working on Module 2 lessons 6-9
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.

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.
