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.

### Review

We had a late start today due to the ice (it looks like a good chance of snow tonight!), so our schedule was a little off.  It is my week to teach Social Studies, so we spent the majority of class working on the Civil War.  Ask your child about Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco.

We determined the five most important items a soldier would have needed to carry during the Civil War.  Then use Google Classroom, students opened their assigned Google Doc to name their five choices and justify their reasoning.

However, we did a quick review using Kahoot!  We solve 12 problems using multiplication of a whole number with a fraction and division of a unit fraction by a whole number.  Then, with the remaining time, we reduced the ingredients to a brownie recipe from feeding 16 to feeding 2 (NOT a real recipe!).
