This week in Mathematics: This week we will begin our Number Concepts unit which covers: estimation, reading and writing numerals, place value, comparing and ordering numbers, rounding whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. We will also continue Fact Fridays during which students will be expected to complete basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and maybe even division questions each and every week. Continuing to work on memorization of the 0-9 addition and multiplication facts is considered "homework". |
Students who have struggled in the past with basic facts should be reviewing on a regular basis at home. A great place to start would be accessing the Math Antics Review Videos linked below or playing Tran Math games, also linked below. |
