Math Hello letter for Feb. 22 week NEW UNIT
Due Date: 2/26/2016
Subject: 3024 Math

Mrs. Phillips mphillips@crenshaw-schools.org

Math Hello Letter for Feb. 22, 2016 Week

Dear Parents,

The Fraction Unit is over for the whole class instruction; however, if your child made below 70 on his or her fraction benchmark I will be working with them during intervention time. I will also be sending home extra practice for your child if he or she did not master the fraction skills.

We started our new unit on Friday.  We will be working on standard 3.OA.8:   Solve two‐step word problems using the four operations.  Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity.  Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.  (This standard is limited to problems posed with whole numbers and having whole‐number answers; students should know how to perform operations in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order.  This unit will also include geometry skills (3.G.1).

Please check your child’s highest multiplication scores at the bottom of last week’s hello letter.   We have been doing our multiplication drills, since August.  I have been doing the X drills the same way all year.  For example:  Child A makes a 60 on his 6 facts  Next X drill:  Child A makes an 80= Grade Book:  The 60 becomes an 80 in the grade book.  It is very important for the children to know his or her facts for these word problems and skills that we are doing in class. I also do oral assessments on the X drills as well.  There are websites and tips listed @ highlandhomeschoolinsites under my name in classroom assignments.

 

Mon.:   Solve word problems in varied contexts using a letter to represent the unknown.

 

Tues.:  They explore the attributes of quadrilaterals and classify examples into various categories, including recognizing the characteristics of polygons (3.G.1)

 

Wed.:  Compare and classify polygons.

 

Thurs.:  X Drills on the X facts that you have not mastered in the 3rd 9 Weeks

Draw polygons with specified attributes to solve problems.

 

Fri.:  Quiz on the skills from this week

Reason about composing and decomposing polygons using tetrominoes.

Mrs. Phillips mphillips@crenshaw-schools.org

Math Hello Letter for Feb. 15, 2016

Dear Parents,

Our fraction unit should end this week if the majority of the students master our Fraction Benchmark test on Wednesday.  We will begin our new unit on Problem Solving and Geometry on Thursday if everything goes as planned with the test.  Students will get intensive practice with word problems, as well as hands-on investigation experiences with geometry and perimeter. Students will solve one- and two-step word problems, classify shapes based on their attributes, learn what a tessellation is, study perimeter and area, and end with a review of Grade 3 fundamental skills.  We will have multiplication drills again next week on Thursday, Feb. 25.  Thanks very much for all of your encouragement and guidance and home.  Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns about our child.  This hello letter and helpful websites are listed on the highlandhomeschoolinsites.  Stride Academy login is kcc10242.  It is an awesome tool for increasing your child’s math skills.

 

Monday:  We will be reviewing the fraction module for our benchmark test on Wed.  Today we will review fractions.  This unit concludes the module with comparing fractions that have the same numerator. As students compare fractions by reasoning about their size, they understand that fractions with the same numerator and a larger denominator are actually smaller pieces of the whole (3.NF.3d).   Homework: Study guide

Tuesday:  Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. c. Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form of 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.  Homework:  Study guide

Wednesday:  Review the Fraction Unit

Thursday:  FRACTION BENCHMARK TEST

Friday:  The module begins with solving one- and two-step word problems based on a variety of topics studied throughout the year, using all four operations.  Next students explore geometry.  Solve word problems in varied contexts using a letter to represent the unknown. We started this on bell work last week.  Homework:  1.  Lena’s dad gives the cashier $30 to pay for 6 liters of apple cider.  The cashier gives him $6 in change.   How much does each liter of apple cider cost?  SHOW your work in your journal.  2.  The apple orchard has 152 apple trees.  There are 88 trees with red apples.  The rest of the trees have green apples.  How many more trees have red apples than green apples?

Math Hello Letter

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your help and encouragement at home.  The students are doing some higher level questioning and reasoning with our fraction problems.  Practice makes perfect.  One of the students told me that I am fraction crazy.  I know that this deep understanding of fractions is going to help each child excel now and in the future.  I do not know when our final benchmark on fractions will be yet.  Friday we will have a Quiz on our fraction skills thus far.  THANKS again for all you do!  If you have any questions or concerns, then please feel free to email me @ mphillips@crenshaw-schools.org.

Don’t forget about Stride Academy login code is kcc10242.

Don’t forget to bring your FRACTION strips to school.

 

Monday:   Place whole number fractions and fractions between whole numbers on the number line.  Practice placing various fractions on the number line.

Homework:  Trevor needs to let his puppy outside every quarter (1 fourth) hour to potty train him. Draw and label a number line from 0 hours to 1 hour to show every 1 fourth hour. Include 0 fourths and 4 fourths hour. Label 0 hours and 1 hour, too.

 

Tuesday:  Compare fractions and whole numbers on the number line by reasoning about their distance from 0.  Homework:  Draw a number line with endpoints 0 and 3. Label the wholes. Partition each whole into fifths. Label all the fractions from 0 to 3. Box the fractions that are located at the same points as whole numbers. (You will have mixed numbers like 1 and ⅕.)

 

Wednesday:  Understand distance and position on the number line as strategies for comparing fractions.  Recognize and show that equivalent fractions have the same size, though not necessarily the same shape.  Homework:  Review problems/back of sheet

 

Thursday:  Recognize and show that equivalent fractions refer to the same point on the number line.  Generate simple equivalent fractions by using visual fraction models and the number line.

Homework:  Max ate 2/ 3 of his pizza for lunch. He wanted to eat a small snack in the afternoon, so he cut the leftover pizza in half and ate 1 slice. How much of the pizza was left? Draw a picture to help you think about the pizza. equivalent fractions by using visual fraction models and the number line.

 

Friday:  Fraction Quiz from our previous lessons  After the quiz we will be doing:  

Express whole numbers as fractions and recognize equivalence with different units.

Decompose (break apart) whole number fractions greater than 1 using whole number equivalence with various models.

Math Hello Letter for November 30, 2015 Mrs. Phillips

 

Dear Parents,

Thank you very much for your help with the sweet shop at the PTA Fall Festival. I sent home thank you notes with each child on Friday before Thanksgiving.  I deeply appreciate your help!  It was a huge success. We sold out of all of the delicious sweets!

This week we will have a benchmark on perimeter and area on Thursday.  We will continue to solve problems with arrays to help with this skill. We will have our 2-8 multiplication facts scrambled in 30 seconds.  The 9 facts will be in order this week.  Please check your child’s highest multiplication scores at the bottom of this hello letter.  We will start 2 and 3 digit multiplication very soon.  It is very important for the children to know his or her facts for these word problems and skills that we are doing in class.  Here are couple of activities to try at home with our benchmark skill:  Measure the area of the rooms in your home to determine which rooms are the smallest and largest.  Use grid paper to make rectangles with the same area.  Find the perimeter of the outside of your house or a fence.

 

Homework this week:  Back of this letter, study X facts, journal

Monday:  Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).   square with side length 1 unit, called "a unit square," is said to have "one square unit" of area, and can be used to measure area.  Finding perimeter and area with tiles and arrays  Students will use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a × b and a × c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.

Tuesday:  Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.  Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.

Wednesday:  Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.

Thursday:  Benchmark on Perimeter and Area

Friday:  Multiplication Drills  Study the facts that you have not mastered yet this 9 weeks.  Check your grades below.  New skill:  Multiply by multiples of ten For example:  60 x 9, 30 X 8. This will be our next benchmark test.

Topic A

New Standards

Focus Grade Level Standards Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division. 1 3.OA.1 Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7. 3.OA.2 Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8. 3.OA.3 Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. (See Glossary, Table 2.) 3.OA.4 Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = _ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ? Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division. 2 3.OA.5 Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. (Students need not use formal terms for these properties.) Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)3 3.OA.6 Understand division as an unknown-factor problem. For example, find 32 ÷ 8 by finding the number that makes 32 when multiplied by 8. Multiply and divide within 100. 4 3.OA.7 Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit number

Trading Stickers, Combining Coins Family Letter

About the Mathematics in This Unit

Dear Families,

Our class is starting a new mathematics unit about addition and subtraction called Trading Stickers, Combining Coins. During this unit, students solve addition problems with 2-digit and small 3-digit numbers, solve subtraction problems involving 2-digit numbers, and find combinations of numbers that add to 100. They work on understanding the place value structure of 3-digit numbers as they solve problems.

Related Activities to Try at Home

Dear Families,

The activities below are related to the mathematics in the addition

and subtraction unit Trading Stickers, Combining Coins. You can use

the activities to enrich your child’s mathematical learning experience.

Practicing Addition Combinations In class, students will be

using a set of Addition Cards to review and practice the addition

combinations to 10 _ 10, often known as addition “facts.” Your child

is likely to have learned many or all of these combinations in Grade 2,

but he or she will benefit from reviewing them all. Your child can sort

these cards into “the ones I know” and “the ones I’m working on.”

The goal is for students to know and use these combinations fluently.

Sometimes for homework, students will choose a few combinations

that they are working on and think about strategies that will help

them remember those combinations. For example, one strategy a child

might use is this: What is 6 _ 7? I know 6 _ 6 _ 12, and 6 _ 7 is

one more than that, so it’s 13. You can help with these combinations

by listening to your child’s strategies or sharing ones that you use.

Addition Strategies in Context Help your child practice addition

strategies while you are shopping. When you buy an item, ask your

child to estimate how much two of them would cost. For example,

If a box of raisins costs $1.39, will two boxes cost less than $2.00?

More than $5.00? What is the exact amount?

How Did You Solve That? Ask your child to describe homework

problems and tell you about the strategy used to solve them.

Communication is an important part of mathematics, and students

need to describe their strategies through talking, writing, drawing, or using concrete objects. You can be an important audience.

Math and Literature Here are some suggestions of children’s books that contain relevant mathematical ideas about addition and subtraction. Look for these

books at your local library. Sayre, April. One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab:

A Counting by Feet Book. Viorst, Judith. Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich

Mrs. Phillips Math Hello Letter December 1

Dear Parents,

We will have a BENCHMARK TEST on this THURSDAY. We have been going over geometry for a while.  Please review the back of this hello letter for a study guide.

3.G.1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

 

Monday:  Working With Shapes and Angles Students continue to explore the characteristics of triangles, quadrilaterals, and angles, including angle measurement.  Homework:  back of this letter

 

Tuesday:  End-of-Unit Assessment Students complete assessment tasks that focus on finding and identifying area, triangles, and right angles.

 

Wed.:  Sorting shapes according to colour and shape, Sort 2D shapes - number of corners, identify quadrilaterals, classify quadrilaterals on the tree, complete a diagram on the polygons, complete the Benchmark review for the test tomorrow. Study the back of this hello letter.

Thurs.:Students will complete the 3.G.1 BENCHMARK TEST. New UNIT 5 if time permits  Many Things Come in Groups Students make lists of things that come in groups of 2 to 12 and use the lists to create multiplication situations. They solve teacher- and class-generated multiplication problems.

 

Fri.:  Students illustrate multiplication situations and write sentences describing the number of groups, the number in each group, and the product. They write multiplication equations to match their illustrations.
