Math Update

We have been solving addition and subtraction word problems involving a total and two partners. Our test will be on Thursday.

  • If one of the partners is unknown, it can be found by subtracting the known partner from the total or by counting on from the known partner to the total.
  • If the total is unknown, it can be found by adding the partners.

Math Mountains are used to show a total and two partners. Students can use the Math Mountain to write an equation and then solve the equation to find the unknown.

*Fact fluency will be crucial for your child! We will be starting multiplication next week. If your child has not mastered addition and subtraction facts, this unit is going to be difficult. I will be sending home information on soon, as well as, information regarding known/unknown facts. If you are interested in helping with fact fluency, please let me know.
