Mastering the Four Operations with Whole Numbers, Fractions & Decimals – Fall 2022 – 10 Weeks -Grades 5 & 6
Monday, August 29 2022 @ 3:00PM – Thursday, December 15 2022 @ 4:00PM EDT
Instructor Email:[email protected]
Grade/Level:5 – 6
Day of Week:Monday and Thursday
Class Times:3:00PM – 4:00PM (ET)
In this class, leaners develop essential math skills necessary for pre-algebra and higher-level math classes. This class is devoted to helping learners master the following skills: multiplication with 2, 3, 4-digits and more, long division, equivalent fractions, adding, subtracting, multiplying, & dividing fractions, decimal place value and rounding to the nearest decimal, and adding, subtracting, multiplying, & dividing decimal numbers.
The instructor will review previous topics and introduce a new concept during each class. A simple word-problem is used as an introduction to each new concept as this helps learners understand the meaning of the operations. Together the class explores possible processes and strategies for carrying out the operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, rounding, and/or finding equivalent forms. Brief problem sets will be assigned as homework on Monday and Thursday to be completed by 8 PM the night before class (i.e., Sunday and Wednesday). The instructor will identify any challenges on the homework and review these concepts at the start of class.
The goal is for learners to master at least one approach for carrying out the four operations (i.e., addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) with whole numbers, fractions and decimals. In addition, students will learn how to simplify fractions, convert between fractions and decimals, as well as how to round decimals. Finally, learners will develop an introductory understanding of when each of these various operations are needed to solve word problems.
Grades for this class are Meeting Expectations, Exceeding Expectations, Not Yet Met Expectations.
Meeting Expectations is earned for participating in class each week, putting forth effort in homework, and passing all assessments.
Exceeding Expectations is earned by putting in exceptional effort on homework, excelling on all assessments and by demonstrating an advanced understanding of operations with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals.
If parents would like a traditional letter grade, please let Mrs. Young know before the third week of the semester.
Given this class only meets twice per week, the expectation is that students spend at least an hour outside of class devoted to homework for the week.
Given this class only meets once per week, the expectation is that students spend at least an hour outside of class devoted to homework for the week.
