 Students from both math groups will get their unit 4 tests back on Monday January 5th. Parent signatures must be returned by Thursday the 8th as that's the first day of testing. Retests will be at recess Thursday and Friday. This may be the only geometry grade on the report cards so I will encourage kids to retest if they got a 2 or lower. Unit 5 FractionsOrder fractions, decimals, mixed numbers, and improper fractions and locate on a number linecomparing fractions using 0, 1/2, 1 VideoFractions on a number line & Fractions on a number line Recognize and generate equivalent fractions, mixed numbers, and improper fractionsImproper fractions to mixed numbers: and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLAvQT9VlrcMixed and Improper & ComparingEquivalent fractions on a number line Video using a number lineGameSimplifying fractionsEstimate sums and differences of fractionsiTunes App: MathTappers: Estimate Fractions - a math game to help children learn to make sense of fraction sums and differences by estimatingFind the sums and differences of fractions using fraction bars, number lines, and algorithms Adding with like denominators and Adding fractions songFractions to Decimals Game
