We have moved our Decimal Computation test to Monday Feb. 27 as I did not feel the class was quite ready. Any extra practice (see announcement links below) will definitely be beneficial.
In this 5th grade unit, students will review
addition and subtraction of decimals, learn to multiply and divide decimals,and
estimate sums, differences, products, and quotients involving decimals. They
will also solve multi-step decimal word problems using the UPSC strategy. Check out
the sites below for extra practice and the files on the left for study guides.
