# MATH

WHAT TO EXPECT...

Students can expect to be ASSESSED in the following ways:

Classwork
Timed tests
Quizzes
Tests
Projects

MATH FACT FLUENCY

• I can't stress this enough, MASTERY is expected with all basic facts!
• Please make sure your child is studying their math facts. Knowing their math facts will strengthen their skills and help them understand all the new concepts they will be learning.
• Plan to practice a minimum of 3 times a week for 10 minutes a session (on-line sites and/or games).

SplashLearn
This school year I plan to use an educational program called SplashLearn to supplement their math learning.  We will utilize this program in school, but I may give additional assignments that students can work on at home.  The version we will be using will give us access to assigned practice, math facts, and progress reports.

CHAPTER 7 - VOCABULARY

 Work backward: A strategy where the answer is known and the unknown is found by reversing the operations or steps in the problem. dividend: The number being divided in a division expression. Example:  24 ¸ 8 = 3 (24 is the dividend) Number pattern: A pattern of numbers that follow a mathematical rule. output: In an input-output table, an output is the result of a mathematical rule applied to an input. input: In an input-output table, an input is a number to which a mathematical rule is applied. The result is an output. divisor: The number by which the dividend is divided. Example:  24 ¸ 8 = 3 (8 is the divisor) division: An operation on two numbers that tells how many equal groups or how many are in each equal group. Area model: A way to show multiplication using a rectangle where the length and width represent the factors. Example: array: A set of objects arranged in rows and columns. divide: To share or separate into equal parts. quotient: The result of dividing. The result of dividing. Example: Input-output table: A table that shows input values and their related output values based upon mathematical operations.
