GO MATH!

## A huge THANK YOU to all our families, chaperones, and school community that make trips like Atwood possible.Tuesday, May 29, 2018
ATWOOD Group 1 Room 313, 316, 318 7:00am - 7:30 Check In at Auditorium Remind Notification To: 81010 Message: @fgsatwood1 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 ATWOOD Group 2 Room 315, 317 7:00am - 7:30 Check In at Auditorium Remind Notification To: 81010 Message: @atwood530 Geometry and Volume: 11 Lessons The final chapter of the 5th grade common core curriculum builds on prior knowledge of two dimensional polygons, area and perimeter with polyhedron, lateral faces, vertices, and volume. Students will revisit identifying and classifying polygons while adding three dimensional figures, unit cubes, solid figures and using algebraic formulas to find volume.Block 1: Mid-Chpt.

Unlike in the earlier grades, we don't spend too much time reviewing how many cups are in a quart, rather we investigate how to apply this information to problem solve. There are several "real world" problems in the assessment of this chapter testing students' abilities in converting units of measurement as well as using various tables and charts to help solve problems about customary and metric conversions.Block 1: Mid-Chpt.

Test: Thursday, May 3, 2018 Algebra Patterns and Graphing: 7 LessonsBlock 1: Chapter 9 contains a series of hands on lesson that involve locating points on a coordinate grid / map as well as representing data sets in line plots and graphs.Mid-Chpt. Quiz: est. April 24th Chpt. Test: est. May 1st. Block 2-4: Graphing ordered pairs, analyzing line graphs and plotting point on a coordinate grid have been a welcomed change after computing, simplifying and modeling fractions for the past two months. We've been having fun with the lighter work load and taking advantage of the extra time by doing spiral review in each lesson. It's never too early to begin preparing for the Spring NWEA MAP test!Mid-Chpt. Quiz: April 6, 2018 Chpt. Test: April 11, 2018 Divide Fractions: 5 LessonsBlock 1: While chapter 8 only has 5 lessons on dividing fractions, the short lessons pack a big punch as the commutative and associative properties does not apply with division. Three of the four lessons utilize models to help develop the sense of which number is the dividend and which is the divisor. We will dive into chapter 8 once we return from spring break in April and will take our time in decoding the word problems and exploring how models can help us set up the correct division expression.Mid-Chpt. Quiz: est. April 6th Chpt. Test: est. April 11th Block 2-4: The deceivingly brief chapter 8 have many pitfalls for students wanting to find quick "rules" to follow and compute without thinking about what the question is asking. We've taken our time depending solely on models to help solve various division problems and while it's felt like I've been holding them back - we are developing our math "spidey-senses" with the visual models to fully understand why quotients are larger than the dividends when dividing by fractions.Mid-Chpt. Quiz: March 12-16 Chpt. Test: March 20 or March 22 - PARCC Schedule
- Test Day 1 -Tuesday, March 6th (Block 1 @ 2:15 )
- Test Day 2 -Wednesday, March 7th (Block 2 @ 2:15)
- Test Day 3 -Thursday, March 8th (Block 3 @ 2:15)
- Test Day 4 -Friday, March 9th (Block 4 @ 2:15)
- Test Day 5 -Tuesday, March 13th (Block 1 @ 11:15 Block 2 @ 2:15)
- Test Day 6 - Wednesday, March 14th (No Blocks)
- Test Day 7 - Thursday, March 15th (Block 3 @11:15 Block 4 @2:15)
All specials classes (CAMPS) have been moved from 9:15am to 1:15pm to accommodate the morning testing schedule. Multiply Fractions: 10 LessonsBlock 1: Students will begin their study into multiplying fractions with modeling and visualizing the various types of fraction whole number and fraction by fraction products. The lessons will dig into deeper strategy skills with writing expressions, comparing mixed number fractions (and products), as well as solving for the unknown using the "guess, check & revise" method with greater consistency.Mid Chapter Checkpoint: est. March 12th Chapter Test: est. March 23rd Blocks 2-4: Shifting to the algorithm of multiplying fractions versus adding and subtracting fractions is an easy transition. Students uncover that they don't need common denominators nor equivalent fractions and they simply need to multiply! Of course, it's not as simple as it sounds - so we will be exploring models to help visualize fraction products before diving further into writing expressions, area models, fractional sides, and finding the "unknown" lengths.Mid Chapter Checkpoint: est.
