Friday Math News

Today in class we did leson 6 sprint (changing mixed numbers into improper fractions). We also reviewed the necessary parts of the answer to a word problem highlighting question 2 on page 27. Please check your child's workbook for notes on this. We reviewed pages 29/30 in the workbook.  We began work on lesson 7, two-step word problems based on adding and subtracting of fractions.  Homework for this weekend is pages 32 + 34 in the workbook.  Make sure there is some kind of a picture or diagram, an equation, some strategy of finding common denominators that will make addition and/or subtraction of fractions possible, an identified answer with units, and simplification of the final answer if necessary.
