***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 11 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.



*** 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.

** 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.
