All About Math

Throughout the entire year we'll focus on problem solving and mental math. These skills will help all students since they are the two that we use the most as adults.  We will also be leaning all kinds of different math concepts such as data analysis, multiplication, division, fractions, geometry, time, volume, mass, area and perimeter. We will also be focusing on strategies and thinking processes that we use when we are performing mathematical operations and problemsSomething that you can do at home is continue to play math games that you already have around the house, like Yahtzee, dice games and card games that include adding and subtracting! These help develop mental math skills. It is also a good idea to practice math facts with online games or flash cards with your child.
