Math

Last year, your child was working in the Eureka math program.  We will continue with this program this year.  Our first unit will begin by covering these topics:
Understanding equal groups of as multiplication.
Relating multiplication to the array model
Interpreting the meaning of factors
Understanding the meaning of the unknown as the size of the group in division
Interpret the unknown in division using arrays
Demonstrate the commutativity of multiplication
Practice related facts by skip counting
The students should be working on their multiplication facts at home each night.  We have started to work on our twos and threes multiplication facts.  Please quiz your child whenever possible.  I would quiz my kiddos during car rides, at the dinner table, etc.  
We are starting a new unit in math after fall break.  It will cover measurement.
I will send home their unit tests from the last unit in this weeks Friday folders.
