MATH
Fractions
N5.5 Demonstrate an understanding of fractions by using concrete and pictorial representations to:
February 1, 2021
 Divide a large pile of objects (cereal, plastic animals, blocks, etc.) equally into 4 piles to illustrate onefourth. Recombine the group to divide into other fractions.
 Get out the measuring cups and spoons! Let your child play with them in the bath to experience onehalf cup or onethird teaspoon.
 Fold a piece of paper into halves, and then into halves again with your child. Open it up to show the division of fourths.
 Count the rooms in your house and make some fraction facts about them. Onehalf of the rooms have windows. Onethird of them have pillows.
Mental Mystery
Have your child count out 1020 objects such as pennies, marbles, or candy and have him close his eyes. Then hide some of the five objects, while leaving the rest uncovered. Ask your child to calculate how many objects he sees and how many objects are covered. Practice this activity until your child can quickly solve these simple equations. Add one additional object once your child has mastered that level to increase difficulty.
Multiplication War
With this fun card game, your child will master his multiplication facts in no time! Shuffle a deck of cards and deal them face down, giving each player an equal number. Assign the picture cards a value of 10 and the aces a value of 11. Each player turns two cards face up, reads the number sentence and supplies the answer. For example, if your child draws a 7 and an 8, he says 7×8=56. If you draw a 6 and a 4, you say 6×4=24. Because his product is larger, he wins the four cards and puts them at the bottom of his pile. Continue the game until one player runs out of cards.

This week we are focusing on Identify, create, and analyze single transformations of 2D shapes (with and without the use of technology). (SS5.7)
Single transformations of 2D shapes  rotations
When we rotate an image, we turn a shape on a point of rotation. We can turn or rotate the image clockwise or counterclockwise. The point of rotation will be on one of the vertices of the shape.
Think about the hands on a clock. When the minute hand moves from the 12 to the 3, it rotates a quarter turn clockwise.
**There is no PDF available for this week**
This week we are focusing on Describing Shapes and Perpendicular Sides (SS5.5)
Terminology:
Parallel: 2 sides that are the same distance apart and never meet.
Horizontal: A line that goes from left to right or right to left.
Vertical: A line that goes up and down.
Perpendicular: 2 lines that intersect at a right angle.
Right Angle: 2 lines that form a 90° Angle
Vertex: The point where 2 sides of a shape meet
This week we are focusing on solving equations using variables (Outcome P5.2)
What is a variable? A variable in math is our unknown. We usually represent this unknown with a letter or a symbol. For example, in the following equation, the variable is the letter c.
I can check my answer by substituting my answer for the variable.
3 + 2 = 5
If I get the right answer, then I know the value of the variable.

This week is focused on Long Division: strategies for dividing 3digit whole numbers by 1digit whole numbers.
368÷3=
300÷3=100
60÷3=20
8÷3=2 remainder 2
368÷3= 122 r2

**There is no printable copy for this week's learning package.
This week, the focus continues with multiplication. Start with Factoring and finishing off the week with Halving and Doubling.
Objective: Watch the video, then do the assignment right after.
❇️ This strategy will only work if one or both factors are:
1. A even number OR
2. Ends with a 5 or 0.
 ex. The 4 is cutting in half to 2, then 2 is cutting in half to 1.
 At the same time, the 9 is doubling up to 18, then 18 is doubling up to 36.
