Grade 5 Math

Week of 4/23 to 4/26

On Thurs., 4/26, students will begin mixed multiplication facts 'mad math minutes' quizzes.  Congratulations!  Many students have improved their mastery of these facts.  We will continue to practice subtracting fractions on Monday and Tuesday when we return from vacation.  Subtracting fractions test is Wed., 4/25.  We will then go onto Topic 10, where students will practice adding and subtracting mixed numbers.  Please continue to practice not only your multiplication facts, but all other operations, as students are finding they are making simple errors in their fractions computations due to mistakes in all operations.  

 Have a good week.
