Parent University Videos (Unit 4 test, multiplying/dividing fractions, volume)

Hello Parents,

Hopefully students are enjoying their first day of winter break! Have no fear, they can definitely take out some time each day to practice and I know they’ve begun working on their Unit 4 Test corrections which are due Wednesday, Feb. 21st. Below you will find several videos on the last few concepts and skills taught since the beginning of January. I hope they give some insight and help with students’ journals, quizzes, activities, and homework. I have also assigned additional practice for measurements and conversions which we will assess next Friday. As I’ve told students, they have to know the standard conversion in order to figure out everything else (ex: 1 ft.= 12 in.) The extra practice can be found on Pearson Realize and USA Testprep. For those who don’t have computer access, it is found in Topic 11 of their book. Let me know if you have any questions and continue to enjoy the time off!!!

Parent University Videos (Fractions Unit Startup)

It’s me again!!!

Parents, as you know, we have begun our new unit for fractions. Below, you’ll find the Parent University videos covering simplifying fractions, finding equivalent fractions, changing from improper to mixed numbers and vice versa, and adding/subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. Hopefully these will jog your memory and/or help your child while they are at home practicing these skills. There will be a quiz this Friday, 12/8, covering these concepts, but it won’t be in depth and won’t include many word problems (1-2 max). I’m focusing on the skill itself, and next week we will continue working on applying them to word problems. Extra practice is also posted to Pearson Realize and USA TestPrep!

Adding Fractions and Mixed Numbers Part 1 of 2

Unit 2&3 Test Corrections

Hello All,

I wanted to be sure to disseminate test corrections information prior to break. All student tests are graded and recorded in the gradebook. Test will be given back tomorrow during your child’s math class. For those students and parents who have already let me know they’ll be absent tomorrow, your child received their test today.

1. Please be sure to read through the directions for test corrections carefully
2. Make sure you ask your child when you pick them up, have they packed their math test, journal, and book to help them with test corrections. All homeroom teachers have also been asked to remind students to pack these items. (Student responsibility is foremost and they shouldn’t have to be reminded 🙂
3. Parents, please be sure to sign your child’s test or they won’t receive credit.

All test corrections are due by Monday, Nov. 27th, no exceptions. I will post a test overview, where I go through each problem and point out key points, or describe what students should be thinking about, within the next few days.
