Math Grade 5 – Students are to finish exercises 1 & 2 on page 11.
Math Grade 6 – Students are to complete sheet on order of operations and finish exercises 9 & 10 on page 73.
Grade 5 – In the grade 5 math program, we’ve just completed a unit on classifying and identifying quadrilaterals along with exploring measurement with milliliters and liters. Students were given test results back today. We have started a unit on patterns and equations and will be continuing this unit when we return from the break. This unit will focus on a foundational learning outcome that deals with solving single variable one-step equations.
Grade 6 – In the grade 6 math program, we recently completed a unit on input/output tables and creating single variable equations for these tables. We have also worked on graphing these tables and the marks students achieved on the unit test were viewed at the parent-teacher conferences. This unit dealt with two foundational outcomes: graphing collected data and analyzing graphs and representing and describing patterns using graphs and table. We have just started a short unit on balancing equations and order of operations. We will be having a quiz on this material shortly after returning from March Break. We have also completed our first of 4 practice quizzes for the grade 6 math assessment that will be held in June. Much of the previous material is now being revisited in class and a more concentrated review will take place during the month of May.
