Weekly Tests:




Thursday:  Chapter 9 Test 


**all tests are subject to change**





Chapter 9 - Adding and Subtracting Fractions

- subtracting mixed numbers with regrouping

- adding two fractions and subtracting a third

- chapter 9 review


***IMPORTANT NOTICE: 3rd nine weeks can be a challenging nine weeks. We spend a bulk of our time on fractions. With that being said, we WILL be giving more homework to practice the new skills. Also, state testing is in roughly 8 weeks, so some of the homework will be a spiral review to keep old material fresh on our brains. It is VERY important that homework is completed on the nights it is assigned.


** Volume Quiz - We are going to incorporate some of the 4th nine weeks skills during 3rd nine weeks, in hopes to better prepare students for state testing. With that being said,  we will have mini lessons on volume during chapter 9 and weekly quizzes will be given.


*** 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,


** 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.
