In math class we started learning about Pentominoes, which helps students develop their spatial awareness. Each week we spend some class time continuing with this project. We have also reviewed basic multipication facts and spent some time on a variety of fraction skills. Reducing fractions is a tricky skill and we have learned how to use prime factorization to help with this process. Students are doing a great job of using the tools they have adopted to conqueor fraction skills. We have also worked with making equivalent fractions, converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and comparing fractions.
