Fifth and Sixth grade Math

The fifth graders have been working on equivalent fractions, relative magnitude (which fraction is greater?) and fraction/decimal equivalents. We've also reviewed factors, factorization and prime factorization as this supports the fraction work. We will be studying fraction addition, subtraction and multiplication over the next two weeks.

The Sixth graders have been studying operating with fractions on a deeper level. Building models and  diagrams of fraction division has been the focus for the past few days. The students have been learning these operations by solving real life problems.

States and Capitalthon

We kicked off the 5th and 6th grade states and capitals fundraiser today. All the fifth and sixth graders attended an informational meeting, and homework is to get a parent signature on the letter that is going home this evening. Thank you for your support!
