*The 2nd Quarter Math CSA is scheduled for Wednesday, January 23rd*
January 14th18th
Students will plot data on a line plot. They will use line plots to answer questions and compare line plots to stem and leaf plots.
The data set for this line plot is: 43, 43, 29, 51, 53, 53, 53, 54
January 7th11th
Students will collect, display, and analyze data using a stem and leaf plot (January 2nd4th)
Students will use data sets in order to calculate mean, median, mode, and range
Students will use data sets in order to calculate mean, median, mode, and range
Mean, Median, Mode, and Range
**Students can be doing their calculations on a calculator  this is a calculator skill**
Stem and Leaf Plots
December 10th14th
Students will understand sample space and be able to create a tree diagram to show possible choices/outcomes
December 3rd7th
Students will subtract fractions with and without regrouping
Videos from last week that show how to find least common multiple and finding greatest common factor in order to simplify are also relevant for this skill. Please refer back to last week for those.
November 26th30th
Students will be able to add fractions.
November 12th16th
Students will Order Sets of Decimals, Fractions, and Mixed Numbers
Students will be expected to put fractions, decimals, AND mixed numbers in order from least to greatest and/or greatest to least depending on the direction given. The easiest way to do this is to change any fractions into decimals, which is what we learned last week. Here is an example of what your child will be working on this week:
Step #1 = change the fractions into decimals by dividing
Step #2 = line up the decimals
0.540
1.469
0.285 (equals 2/7)
1.440
1.800 (equals 1 4/5  mixed number)
You can then look at all 5 decimals to determine the smallest to largest numbers: 2/7 (0.285) > 0.54 > 1.44 > 0.54 > 1 4/5
Step #1 = change the fractions into decimals by dividing
Step #2 = line up the decimals
0.540
1.469
0.285 (equals 2/7)
1.440
1.800 (equals 1 4/5  mixed number)
You can then look at all 5 decimals to determine the smallest to largest numbers: 2/7 (0.285) > 0.54 > 1.44 > 0.54 > 1 4/5
**Homework is on Wednesday and Thursday only this week**
November 5th9th
Students will be able to convert fractions to decimals and understand fraction/decimal equivalence.
*1st Quarter Math CSA  Wednesday, October 31st*
October 29thNovember 2nd
Students will review challenging skills from the first quarter to prepare for the CSA on Wednesday.
No homework tonight  the copier is down  be on the lookout for review homework on Tuesday
October 22nd26th
Students will multiply and divide decimals.
October 15th19th
Students will round decimal numbers to the nearest whole number, tenth, or hundredth
Because of the midquarter assessment on Monday 10/15, homework does not begin until Tuesday 10/16.

*Mid Quarter Assessment  Monday, October 15th*
October 8th12th
Students will be able to find either the start time, end time, or elapsed time.
Start time  The time an activity begins
End time  The time an activity ends
Elapsed time  The time that passes by in between start and end
This year students are required to be able to find either the: start, end, or elapsed time. They will ALWAYS be given two out of three of the times to work with. We teach students to use a tchart to organize their thinking. See examples below:

October 1st5th
The student will create and solve singlestep and multistep practical problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with and without remainders of whole numbers.
September 24th28th
The student will evaluate whole number numerical expressions, using the order of operations limited to parentheses, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
Due to missed days from Hurricane Florence, no new homework will be issued this week. Refer back to the week of 9/1014
September 17th21st
Students will be able to identify, explain, and demonstrate which numbers prime and composite
In order to determine if a number is prime or composite, we have taught students to factor the number out, or write all of the facts that produce that number.
Example: 8 = (1x8, 2x4)  the number 8 has four factors: 1, 2, 4, 8
**We always have them start with 1 and work their way up.
Example: 48 = (1x48, 2x24, 4x12, 6x8)  the number 48 has eight factors: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 48
A prime number only has one fact that produces that number.
Example: 3 = (1x3)
Example: 8 = (1x8, 2x4)  the number 8 has four factors: 1, 2, 4, 8
**We always have them start with 1 and work their way up.
Example: 48 = (1x48, 2x24, 4x12, 6x8)  the number 48 has eight factors: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 48
A prime number only has one fact that produces that number.
Example: 3 = (1x3)
Factor trees help students breakdown larger numbers like 72.
72 is the product of 9x8
9 is the product of 3x3
8 is the product of 2x4
and 4 is the product of 2x2
72 is the product of 9x8
9 is the product of 3x3
8 is the product of 2x4
and 4 is the product of 2x2
Factor rainbows are a fun way for students to show the factors of a given number.
The factors of 24 are: 1x24, 2x12, 3x8, and 4x6
The factors of 24 are: 1x24, 2x12, 3x8, and 4x6
September 4th7th
Students will be able to identify, explain, and demonstrate which numbers are even/odd
