We have been working on Decimals for the past week, using all four operations. We will have a test over decimal operations on Wed. Aug, 31. Moving forward, we will begin working with LCM/GCF, fractions, and ratio concepts.
Carnegie Learning and MathiaX
This week we registered for access to our online textbook. Students can log in at home to complete work or to print pages if necessary. MathiaX is the software that correlates with our textbook. Students will be asked to complete assignments at home and during class time to gain extra practice with skills and concepts.
We will be using TenMarks, an online math program to provide your child with opportunities for additional math practice. On TenMarks, your child can practice and master math concepts one topic at a time. They can work on assignments I make, or choose to practice on their own, anytime. While they are practicing, your child will have access to hints if they get stuck, as well as a short video tutorial if they need more detailed explanation. I have set up your child with their own individual account. S/he can access TenMarks from any computer to continue working on the program at their own pace. From the teacher account, I can monitor and review your child's progress, assign work, and give them feedback. From the parent account, you can monitor and review their progress, too. Please contact me if you would like the parent account information for your child.
It has been a wonderful first week back!
