Students will be learning various multiplication strategies. These include traditional multiplication ("old school"), ancient Egyptian, partial products, area models, etc.
It is imperative that all 5th graders know their multiplication facts 1-12. It is vital to their success in algebra.
This year you will push yourself to a whole new level! We will explore new ideas, new thought processes and strategies, and explore concepts. We'll take it slow, we'll talk about it, we'll practice, and we will "do the math".
Knowing your math facts, by memory, is crucial to working through 5th grade math problems. If you do not know all of your math facts I strongly urge you to start practicing right now! You can make your own flash cards, you can buy a set of flash cards at a dollar store, and you can find plenty of online apps that allow you to test your math fact knowledge. We will not review math facts or spend time reviewing basic multiplication - you should have mastered these skills.
Math is a journey - and it is one I will lead you through. We will work together throughout the year to develop your skills, open your mind, and explore math. Some of you may be afraid of math - that's ok! We'll work it out. Some of you may LOVE math - that's awesome! We will enahnce your love of all things math. Some of you may feel math is hard and you can't do it - nonsense! You CAN do it! And we will work on your skills to help you unlock the magical world of mathematics!
Parents: Harrison County has adopted a new math curriculum this year by the name of, "Everyday Math". There are several online components to this new curriculum including components parents and students can access at home. Please be patient as this new system is implemented. Student and Parent log in, passwords, etc. will be sent home as they are made available.
