Math Unit 1 Addition and Subtraction with Fractions Test on Tuesday, September 29th
We are going to strat with like denominators and then move to different denominators. We will also do mixed numbers. I have assigned the KHAN Academy lessons that go with this chapter. Students are welcome to work on these throughout the unit for reinforcement.
If your student has completed the math homework at school, they should do KHAN academy for 20 minutes at home.
Multiplication facts are extremely important. There are some things in life that just need to be memorized. Please practice multiplication facts with your child whenever you get a chance. 6s, 7s, 8s, and 9s are the ones they struggle with the most. The better they know their facts, the easier learning the concepts will be.
