GO MATH!

Multiply Fractions: The essential question of Chapter 7: How do you multiply fractions? Students will use models to multiply fractions and whole numbers and then fractions and fractions, including mixed numbers. They use the area model to make sense of the algorithm for multiplying fractions. Students use appropriate tools strategically when they decide if it makes more sense to use and area model or the alogrithm to determine the product. This chapter will apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions /mixed numbers.
Est. Quiz: Block 1: 2/13/19 Block 2-4: 1/20/19 Est. Test: Block 1: 2/20/19 Block 2: 2/28/19 Add and Subtract Fractions w/ Unlike Denominators: Fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing an understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions is considered a "critical area" in 5th grade math standards. There are 4 chapters that handle this critical area beginning with chapter 6. In this chapter, students will visualize equivalent fractions using fraction tiles/strips as a strategy to add and subtract fractions with uncommon denominators. Students will investigate estimation with number lines and rounding to benchmark fractions. We will observe patterns and problem solving strategies to look for and make use of structure and persevere in solving multi-step problems. Chapter 6 encompasses a brief review of domain specific vocabulary as well as simplifying and equivalent fractions.
Est. Quiz: Block 1: 1/15/19 Block 2-4: 1/24/19 Est. Test: Block 1: 1/25/18 Block 2: 2/12/18 Divide Decimals: During the eight lessons in chapter 5, students make sense of procedures for dividing decimals by estimating the quotient using compatible numbers. This estimate can help the student place the decimal point after dividing. Exploring division with models and contexts and making sense of the placement of the decimal point will help students to understand how the decimal division algorithms work.
Est. Quiz: Block 1: 12/06/18 Block 2-4: 12/17/18 Est. Test: Block 1: 12/18/18 Block 2: 1/15/18 Multiply Decimals: We will investigate the different strategies / approaches to multiplying decimals by whole numbers and decimals by decimals; First, through quick pictures and with distributive properties and partial products.
Quiz: Block 1: 11/20/18 Block 2-4: 12/03/18 Test: Block 1: 11/29/18 Block 2: 12/10/18 This "smart cookie" had a great time teaching the ghouls, wizards, and furry creatures that appeared to class today. We used this Halloween decimal rounding worksheet for a quick TASK and spent the rest of our time playing around the world. I think we are ready for the Chpt. 3 Mid Chapt. Checkpoint Quiz tomorrow!!
Add and Subtract Decimals: Chapter 3 of GO Math! begins with more review on place value. This is a theme for the entire year, so it spirals frequently within each of the chapters. Decimal place values are introduced using the same language of determining the relationship between each place value (ie: 1/10 is ten times as much as 1/100 or 3/10 is one-tenth of 3). By the mid-point quiz we should be able to compare, round and model decimals. The second half of the chapter entails place value addition and subtraction (traditional) through direct practice, sequence work, and word problems. Unlike the brief but intense quality of chapter two, chapter 3 has a total of 12 lessons that don't require as much in depth analysis.
