Multiplication:We started multiplication today, and we are using a method that is new to your children (and maybe you too!)  It is similar to the partial product approach, but it creates a foundation of true multiplication understanding.  Here is a link to an example problem of 14 x 23.  Once you fill in the chart as is seeon in the link, you simply take the sum of the numbers (200 + 30 + 80 + 12) to find the product.  Please let me know if you have any questions!  Thank you!

Algebra: a brief explanation of using inverse operations to solve

b + 8 = 12  We are trying to isolate the variable (get it by itself)
    - 8    -8  The opposite of adding 8 is subtracting 8, so we do it to both sides
We are left with:
b + 0= 12 - 8
= 4

3q - 1 = 14
     + 1   + 1
3q - 0 = 14 + 1
3q  = 15
 3       3
q =5
