Math News
  •  We will be working on fractions for all of February. The topic this week is multiplying fractions, with and without models.  We will focus on problem solving with multi-step problems for the remainder of the year. 
  • Instead of a quiz, I would like students to work on two Study Island assignments:      1) Real World Adding and Subtracting Fractions and 2) Multiplying with Fractions which will be due on Friday 2/23.   
  • Number Rock has some fun videos to help students learn about fractions in a fun way: 
  • Number Rock Multiplying Fractions and Whole Numbers 
  •         Number Rock Simplest Form Song
  •          Number Rock Fractions Videos
  •          NumberRock Add and Subtract Fractions
  • Gizmos (link, username, password below) also has some excellent fractions reasources. Just search for "fractions" and many goods ones come up.  I suggest "Multiplying Fractions", "Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers" and "Fractions with Unlike Denominators" for this week. 
  • Remember Mr. Math Blog as a good resource if your child is stuck on a lesson and their IMN isn't helping. Here's the link:
