Math Unit Test

On Thursday, May 5th we will be having a Number Sense unit test.  The topics that will be covered are:

  1. Representing Numbers using:

-Place Value and Base Ten models

-Number words and numerals

-Expanded form

  1. Comparing Numbers

-greater/less than

-making greatest/least numbers with given digits

  1. Addition and Subtraction

-Using rounding to estimate sums and differences

 

We have already practiced these topics extensively in group lessons and independent work.

We will be reviewing and practicing the material for the test this week and next.  In addition, students may prepare at home by reviewing their jump math workbook and practicing problems which seem unfamiliar or caused them some trouble.

Prodigy Math will also be programmed to provide review questions.  Please let me know if a particular area seems to be a problem for your child, and I can provide worksheets, or make prodigy assignments to practice that skill.

This was a huge unit, so practicing early will be very important.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Reading
