Math Focus for this Week: Oct. 23rd-27th

October 16-20th

Math Focus:

Recognizing addition and subtraction through several models and methods

Math Vocabulary:

Strip diagram- a model used to help with problem solving

Problem Solving- word problems that require thinking to figure out the operation needed

Math Facts:

The test will focus on using 10 in addition and subtraction facts:

EX: 9 + 5 = to practice these facts add 1 to the 9 to get to 10. Add the 10 to the 5 to get 15, then subtract 1 to get 14.

    Another strategy to use for subtraction is to turn it into addition:

             EX: 13- 7 = 

              7 + ? = 13

Math Homework:

Math Flipped Videos Monday 

Students will need Math INB to complete their homework

Practice problems will be sent home on Wednesday for homework instead of video.

Addition Unit 2 District Test-Tuesday

Watch Monday's Video for Review and then review Addition Strategies Video: focus on the number line, expanded form and base ten model.  Have your student practice some addition problems using those strategies.

Math Focus for this Week: Oct. 16th-20th

October 16-20th

Math Focus:

Estimating-Rounding through problem solving. While finding the just right addition strategy!

Math Vocabulary:

Approximate, estimate and about:

 are words that lets us know that we are looking for number close to instead of exact.

When we are reading a problem and come across one of the above words, it lets' us know that we will be using friendly numbers and NOT exact numbers. 

Math Facts:

The test will focus on using doubles to solve addition and subtraction facts:

EX: 5 + 7 = to practice this strategy we would take the lower digit and use to double- 5 + 5 = 10 plus 2 more = 12 

EX: 13 - 7 = to practice this strategy we would take the the lower digit and double- 7 + 7 = 14 (to high so we subtract 1 from the double to get 13) 

 7 + 6 = 13

    Another strategy to use for subtraction is to turn it into addition:

             EX: 13- 7 = 

              7 + ? = 13
