This week we will begin our new unit- Order of Operations and will continue to practice long division. You will be working independently on practicing these concepts and will meet with me in small group to demonstrate mastery or clarify doubts.

We have so far worked on Place Value concepts and whole number computation. Students should know fluently to add, subtract, multiply and divide multi-digit whole numbers. In the following weeks, we will move on to decimal computation.
We start with IOWA testings on Monday. If everything goes as per schedule, students will be administered Math IOWA on Wednesday (9/13). I will be going over some test taking strategies and expose students to concepts that have not been introduced to them as of yet. Please use the following power point to prepare for the test.
IOWA Test Prep
Unit 1- Place Value concepts with Whole Numbers and Decimal Numbers
MGSE5.NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
MGSE5.NBT.2 Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
MGSE5NBT.3 Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.
a. Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 x (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).
b. Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
MGSE5.NBT.4 Use place value understanding to round decimals up to the hundredths place.
During the first three weeks of school, we will focus on the above concepts with respect to decimal numbers. We will start out by reviewing the concepts with whole numbers while focusing on using precise grade level math vocabulary. Students will be exposed to various forms of questioning and will be asked to answer in variety of forms as well.
Use the videos, lesson notes and other extra resources available in this blog. Expect homework every day and always study your notes given in the Math Binder before any quizzes or tests.
