 Chapters 1 and 2

     This week we will continue to work on place value and rounding up to millions place.


     Students need ready recall of multiplication facts up to 12. It will help tremendously for the rest of the year. So practice, pactice, practice!!!!! Please make sure your child is bringing home their math journals to help them with their assignments!!!! They should be taking lots of notes in their journals to help them when I am not around (unles you want me to come and spend the night at your house, to help with their homework :). This should also help in case your child is insisting they have to do it my way and your way is wrong.




1. THIS IS AN AWESOME SITE!!!!!! Click on the picture below, to visit the website that goes along with our math book to play a fun game or get some extra practice, on past, present or future skills we work on through the year. Have fun!!!!



2. Here are muliplication sites, for extra fact practice (the last one has FOUR pages of free fun multiplication games). Multiplication is key to so many skills we do, I can't stress enough that your child must have ready recall of facts in order to be successful in math!!!!!!!!!






3. Go to this website:


For every five word problems you print off, complete, and turn in you will earn 10 extra points!!!!!!! 


4. Go to this website and win a free homework pass! Play the game and work out all of the problems on paper. When you are finished print off the page that says you won and attach it to your work. Have your parents sign it and then turn in EVERYTHING to me. After you get the pass back it is good for one assignment and the assignment must be approved by me ahead of time. You can play the game as much as you like, but you can only turn in one pass a week.



5. Here are some other fun math games for extra practice on the skills we will be working on throughout the year. Have FUN!!!!!

Math Geometry Terms

point: a location on a line, in a plane, or in space

plane: a flat surface with no end named by at least three points


line: a straight path of points extending in both directions with no endpoints

line segment: part of a line with two endpoints

ray: a part of a line that begins at one endpoint and goes on forever in one direction

angel: two rays with the same endpoint

vertex: point at which two rays meet in an angle

right angle: angle that forms a square corner

acute angle: angle with measure less than a right angle

obtuse angle: angle with a measure greater than a right angle

intersecting lines: lines that cross each other to form either a pair of acute angles and a pair of obtuse angles or a pair of right angle

parallel lines: lines in a plane that never intersect

perpendicular lines: lines that intersect to form right angles


Elapsed Time with Regrouping

Remember: 1 hour = 60 minutes

Add without regrouping:

     Maria began soccer practice at 3:30 p.m. She practiced for 1 hour and 45 minutes. At what time did she finish?



           4:75 p.m.

  +1 -60

         5:15 p.m.

Subtracting with regrouping:

     Jevon spent 2 hours and 20 minutes working on his report. He finished working at 6:00 p.m. What time did he start?

 6:00                   5:60

-2:20                 - 2:20

         3:40 p.m.           3:40 p.m.

If you don't have any minutes to subtract from, the you need to take one hour away and convert it to your minutes.

Converting Measurements

To convert a large unit to a small unit you need to multiply.

To convert a small unit to a large unit you need to divide.
