This week in Math, students will be continuing their study of geometry. Students will be introduced to parallel and perpendicular lines this week and will use what they have previously learned about angles to identify shapes based on the appearance of the lines and angles.

February 10 - February 14

This week in Math, students will be wrapping up a Measurement unit and taking the unit 4 post-assessment covering addition, subtraction, and measurement. Later in the week, students will be starting a new unit on geometry covering topics such as angles, polygons, area and perimeter.

February 3 - February 7

This week in Math students will be wrapping up their unit on Addition and Subtraction strategies and will be moving on to a unit on measurement. Within the measurement unit, students will be looking at time, distance, volume, and mass and how to record these types of data within a table.

January 27 - January 31

This week in Math, students will be looking at subtraction strategies and learning the standard algorithm for subtraction. These strategies will cover subtraction with borrowing and carrying across 0's.

January 13 - January 17

This week in Math, students will be starting a new math unit covering addition and subtraction within 10,000 as well as measurement including time, money, and metric conversions. This week we will look at addition strategies and review/learn the standard algorithm for addition.

January 6 - January 10

This week students will have the opportunity to experience COSI on Wheels, take the MAP Winter Assessment for Mathematics, apply for and be selected for a classroom/school job, and discuss ways in which they can become leaders at school and at home.

December 9 - December 13

This week in Math, students will be introduced to decimals. Students will take what they have learned about fractions, specifically tenths and hundredths, and relate these experiences to decimals. Throughout the rest of the unit, students will have the chance to convert fractions to decimals, compare decimals, and work on real world problems involving decimals such as money.

December 2 - December 6

This week in Math, students will continue their exploration of fractions. Students have the basics of adding and subtracting fractions and will now use these skills to solve real world problems and play math games against their classmates.

November 18 - November 22

This week in Math, students will continue to learn about fractions. We will start comparing, adding, and subtracting fractions so students can understand relative sizes of fractions. Students will be learning a new game that incorporates fractions that they can play at home.

November 11 - November 15

This week in Math, students are starting a new unit on fractions. Students will begin by creating a fraction kit to compare the relative sizes of fractions like halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, eighths, twelfths, and sixteenths. Students will have the chance to look for fractions in the real world and discover how a familiarity with fractions can help in our everyday lives.

October 21 - October 25

This week in Math, students will continue to look at multiplication strategies that focus on the foundation of the Base Ten Number System. Students will use the area model to multiply two digit numbers and then will use this strategy to solve real world multiplication problems.

October 14 - October 18

This week in Math, we will be starting our second unit covering our Base Ten Number System and multiplication strategies for large numbers. Students will begin by learning about the Base Ten Number System, specifically the names and values of each place to 1 million, and then will move onto to practice large multiplication with x10, x100, and x1000.

October 7 - October 11

This week in Math, students will be looking at measurement. We will explore concepts related to linear measurement, mass and weight, and volume and capacity. Students will discover the differences between the metric and customary forms of measurement and will have the opportunity to work hands on with tools like rulers, meter sticks, scales, balances, and measuring cups.

September 29 - October 4

This week in Math, students will be studying the concept of multiplicative comparisons to understand relative size of objects and numbers. Students will also be taking their first assessment for Unit 1. Later in the week, students will begin to look at units of measurement and how to use specific tools in their everyday lives.

September 16 - September 20

This week in Math, students will be looking at division strategies and models that hey can compare to the multiplication strategies and models learned last week. We will also look at multiplication arrays in more detail and then put our skills to test by learning a multiplication based game that students can take home to play with friends and family.

September 9 - September 13

This week in Math, students will continue to look at numbers as factors, multiples, primes, and composites. Students will also have the chance to look at multiplication and division strategies and models in order to discover an efficient model to use.

September 2 - September 6

This week in Math we will be starting our first math unit covering, multiplication and division strategies, factors and multiples, and prime and composite numbers. Students will start each day exploring number patterns in Number Corner and then will have the opportunity to learn about and practice the above concepts.
