## Jan. 10 - 14

We are working on dividing decimals and changing fraction into decimals this week. Please see the helpful links below to check out our strategies for solving these kinds of problems.

Dividing Decimals

Changing fractions into decimals

## Jan. 3 - 7

We are working on partial quotient division. This is a very different way of dividing. I know it may seem strange to many parents, but it is actually easier for students to understand. The "old school" way may be fast, but too often kids do not really understand what they are doing. Check out these youtube videos for more help with this strategy.

## Dec. 6 - 10

We are going to be working on multiplying decimals. We are starting by using number strings. This is when we start with a fact we already know and then keep ,"kicking it up a notch" until we get to the original problem. For example: 100 x 0.3, we would start with 1 x 0.3 = 0.3 so 10 x 0.3 = 3, so 100 x 0.3 = 30

We are also using 10 x 10 grids to multiply. Check out the links below for more help with this strategy.

## November 1 - 5

We will be finishing up Unit 1 this week. We will be working on writing expressions and solving equations using variables. Sound like something more than 5th grade math? Well, the kind of problems your children are working on now are probably the same kind you and I learned in junior high and high school. I will do my best to make sure they know what they are doing.

## 5th grade (cont)

October 18-22

This week we will be working on putting decimals on a number line. The students will first try to decide what decimals they already are familar with such as 0.5 (they should know that this is half or the same as 0.50). Then they will try to decide if the decimal is before or after the halfway point (0.5). For more help with this click on the Math is Fun or the IXL link below and search for decimals.

We will also be working on rounding. They need to know that if the digit before the one they are rounding to is a "5" or above than the number would be rounded up and if it is below "5" it would round down. For more help click on the IXL or Math is Fun links below and search rounding.

October 25-29 This week we will be adding and subtracting decimals and whole numbers. Please see our strategies link below. It may seem like it would be easier to just use the "old school" methods, but we have found that the students simply were not making sense of the math. It is so important for the math to make sense so that they will do well in the higher level math classes.

## Jan 3 - 7

This week we will be working with comparing fractions and decimals. Students will need to use benchmark numbers like 0, 1/2, and 1. For example, we know that 3/4 is more than 1/2 because 2/4 would be half. It is also only one away from being a whole (4/4 would be a whole). We also know that 3/8 is less than half because 4/8 would be half. We will also be looking at how fractions and decimals are the same. They are just two different ways to show a number that is less than a whole. Check out the website below for more help with these concepts.

## Dec. 6 - 10

This week we will be starting unit 3 which involves more division practice. We will be studying divisibility rules. See links below for more help with this.

October 25-29- This week we will be multiplying and dividing decimals. This has been a very difficult concept to get students to understand. We are trying to use some of the same strategies we used when we work with whole numbers. We really want students to understand that you can break numbers up into easier parts. For example 3.4 x 0.8 (We can break up 3.4 into 3 + 0.4. Then we can multiply 3 x 0.8 -[think 0.80 cents 3 times]= 2.40 Now multiply 0.4 x 0.8- [this is where is gets tricky]= 0.32 Finally, put them both together [2.40 + 0.32= 3.72]
