Welcome to my math blog! The purpose of this blog is to help you stay informed about our learning and experiences that have taken place during our math class. I have also included links your child (and you) may want to use in order to supplement math learning in 5th grade.

### Finishing Decimals

We finished up with decimals today.  This does not mean that we will not continue to work with decimals!  We are just moving on to another unit of study!

The classes worked independently on a page called "It's a Living!"  This activity required them to work with:
• standard and word form of decimals
• compare and order decimals
• find decimal numbers between two decimals
• name places
• round decimals
There is a fun element to it, they were to shade in their answers on a puzzle.  If all of the answers were correct, then the shaded answer would fill in the statement:

In the early 1700's, Anne Bonny
and Mary Read were _____.

Ask your child to fill in the blank!  :-)

Have a great weekend!
