Addition, Subtraction and Problem Solving…Oh My!

It’s never a bad thing to continue practicing your addition and subtraction. This year, we’ve added decimals to the mix, and have been practicing using both operations in multi-step problem solving.

We will be having a math test on these skills on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • estimating sums and differences (whole numbers and decimals)
  • calculating sums and differences (whole numbers and decimals)
  • multi-step problem solving

There are many ways to review for this test. We will be spending time in class reviewing the various components. Additionally, here are some things you can do at home:

* Practice test, which was in your homework package this week.

* IXL Math  – your teacher has assigned some focus skills to practice

* EdPuzzle – your teacher has shared some video tutorials for review

* Practice Worksheets – you will find many different worksheets here to help you review


It’s always a good strategy to make a study schedule for yourself. This past week you were given a schedule to help you study for your science quiz. Here is a blank schedule. Can you fill it out for yourself? Think about any extra-curricular activities you have, family commitments, or special events and plan out your study schedule from now until the day of the test.

Good luck!
