*** FYI: Students have been informed that they are allowed to take their math book home any night they choose for extra practice. It is their responsibility to make sure the book comes back each day. They are also allowed to take their math binder home nightly. We take notes as a class and this could also serve as a great review!

** Extra practice (if needed): MobyMax (website), online textbook, math book, khanacademy.com

 

** Practice basic multiplication & division facts at home. Math concepts build on each other, so having a good foundation of basic multiplication facts helps TREMENDOUSLY!!!

* Multiplication practice will be given as homework on an as needed basis.
