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

We are beginning our third module.  It covers multiplication and division again.  The students should have memorized their multiplication facts from 1-5.  This module, they should memorize them from 6-12. 
We do practice our facts in class, we rote count, we do sprints, games etc.  But this is not enough for most children to memorize their facts!  Please take time each day to help your child memorize them.  It is so important for them to know their facts moving forward in their education.
