Other Notes: Mastery Quiz 1: Measuring Angles & Using Benchmarks
Last Week The beginning of the week was spent drawing angles with our protractors. We will provide students with the protractors that are needed for the test. Students will not be allowed to use any they bring from home. The short cycles looked promising, I’ve yet to finish grading the extended response portion but I hope it looks as good as the multiple choice section. Great strides were made this week in learning how to use fractions. We learned that to make equivalent fractions we must multiply or divide by a fraction that is equal to 1. What ever we do to the top, we must do to the bottom, and vice versa.
This Week This week I am attending a tech conference in the Toledo area. Mrs. Chilson will be leading our math class so that it is consistent with what we have been doing. This week they will continue to work with equivalent fractions and will begin to convert fractions and decimals. We will only be tackling the tenths, hundredths, and thousandths - the ones that convert easily. When I return we will put fractions and decimals on a number line and begin to add fractions that have unlike denominators.

Other Notes Conferences are quickly approaching. I would be more than happy to discuss your child’s progress with you, just make sure you sign up for me! (I’ll be in the lab) Also February is Kindness Month. We will again be collecting Books, Blankets, and Stuffed Animals, as well as monetary donations, and pop tabs! More details about this soon!! Students have been putting in a much better effort on their homework. Thank you for your encouragement and please continue expecting excellence from your child!
