This Week We Are Learning:
Math: We will wrapping up this unit this week with division (students will solve with proficiency for quotients of up to a four-digit dividend by a two-digit divisor using strategies and the standard algorithm). This unit also includes solving for equations with a letter standing in for an unknown quantity. For example, if there are 24 boxes of pencils and each box contains 12 pencils. Mrs. Kim uses 3 pencils during class. What could be used to find p, the total number of pencils that Mrs. Kim did not use. The answer would be p= (24×12) -3. We have been doing a lot of problem solving examples in class and will continue to practice more problems in preparation for the test on Monday, so please review math journals. The assessment will also include multiplication that we covered last week and solving for volume.
Science: There is a science assessment this Thursday on changes to land. This unit includes landforms, formation of sedimentary rocks and fossil fuels, and alternative energy. In class, students will be working in groups to research and present an alternative energy. These include wind, hydroelectric, solar, geothermal, and biofuels. Students will understand that alternative energies are renewable resources unlike fossil fuels that a nonrenewable.
