Week of March 26 - 30, 2018

This week in math we will be finishing topic 10. We will be going over lessons 10-5- 10-8, and testing on topic 10 either Wednesday or Thursday of this week. Homework will be from lessons 10-5 , 10-6, 10-7, and 10-8. After the test on topic 10 , we will skip ahead to topic 16 on geometry. After geometry, we will go back to topics 11-12 on fractions. Those who still do not have fluency with their basic facts should be studying those each night. Most students know them well at this point but there are a few who do not and in order to master multiplication, division, and fractions, students need a strong knowledge of those facts.

Have a great week! I think we may see some spring weather this week! Enjoy!!!
