Math Update

We just finished the Decimal Ops unit today by taking the unit test.  The next unit we will be covering in math is Comparing Bits and Pieces:  Ratio, Rational Numbers, and Equivalence.  In this unit, students will extend their understanding of rational numbers.  They will also explore ratio as a comparison of two quantities and use rate tables to study equivalent ratios.  Students will learn to recognize fractions and decimals as numbers that can be located on the number line as well as compared, counted, partitioned, and decomposed.  They will also recognize equivalence of fractions and ratios, and use equivalence to solve problems.  Our first investigation is all about making comparisons.  Our first quiz for this unit will be next week.
