Working on our Math
We have worked our way through a lot of diagnostic work this September, and reviewed strategies for addition, subtraction, and multiplication. We will continue to brush up our skills in multiplication with some work using base ten block this week. Check out the following video on the topic of 'completing the square' to solve for multiplication questions. There is no sound, but it does give a simple overview of what we will be doing in class this week.
We have also been working on some very tricky patterning problems. Ask your child about constants, and how they help us to solve for pattern rules.
