Now that students have a better understanding of decimal notation, we will look at what we can do with decimals! We will compare decimals with other decimals. We will add and subtract decimals. We will even look at how to place numbers with decimal parts on a number line.
This week in math, we will begin looking at decimals! We will first look at various ways to represent decimals and focus on creating a deep understanding of place value as we learn decimal notation. We will look at decimals in standard, written, expanded, and pictorial forms. We will look at decimals that reach to the hundredths place.
The place value chart below will be included in your child's math notebook to help him/her master decimal notation.
By the end of the week, students should feel comfortable representing decimals multiple ways, as well as adding and subtracting decimals.
This week in math, we are wrapping up our unit on place value and data analysis. We will tie up loose ends on place value in guided math on Monday. Monday night, a review sheet will go home with students for homework. They are to complete this and bring it back Tuesday for an in-class review. We will go over the homework, as well as some other problems in class to prepare for the test on Wednesday!
On Wednesday, students will take their first math test. It will cover place value, data analysis, and estimation. Students should bring home their math notebooks and their review sheets each night this week to prepare for the test.
Attached below, you can access the review sheet.
We are continuing to work on place value this week in math. Last week, we began looking at the place value of various digits within numbers up to the billions place. This week, we will look at those numbers and how we use them to describe demographic information about the state of Texas!
On Monday, we will have homework from the textbook for students to complete. If this is troubling your child, please use the Pearson Bounce Pages app to scan page 10. This should pull up an instructional video to help you and your child to better understand the content covered in the homework.
On Wednesday, we will begin a guided math rotation. This means students will begin working in small groups to explore place value further. Students will also have math homework again on Wednesday.
