Fifth Grade Week of February 3, 2020

What we are working on this week:

Math (Bridges)-

Unit 4 Module 2

In Module 2, students investigate multiplication and division decimals, using the context of money as they find the costs of making homemade items to sell. In the process, they explore the relationship between quarters of dollars, 1/4 and 0.25, 3/4 and 0.75, and think about how those relationships help in solving combinations that involve multiplying or dividing by 25, 75, and other closely related numbers such as 24, 26, 74, and 76.
