Math News

Week of December 4-8

IXL M.22 due next Monday, December 4

We are studying “scaling”.  This is where we look at what happens to the size of a number when it is multiplied by a factor greater than, less than, or equal to one.

IXL:  M.17 is due by next Monday, December 11, and is working on scaling. 

IXL:  M.18 is Extra Credit due the same day and works on scaling as well.

There is no Weekly Review this week.  Instead, there is a Study Guide for our Multiplication Test on Friday.  A parent signature is one bonus point on the test!

Multiplication Quiz corrections are due by Wednesday, December 6.  (Students are getting these back on Monday, and we are reviewing some frequently missed items together in class.)
