## Core Math Program

- main texts are Nelson Math 3 and 4 and JumpMath, combined with other resources.
- A homework recommendation is doing home math fact practice 3 times a week for 5-15 minutes at a time. On-line resources (free) could include Mathmagician.com and Multiplication.com.
- Students have been enrolled in a free math practice program called
**Prodigy Math**. Students can log in and work through math questions at home as well. Often the practice will be linked to units that students are studying -Students will be starting working through a number value assignment in October. - group, partner and individual problem solving

in October we will be starting...

Numbers

- number value (using charts, tokens, base 10 blocks)
- writing numbers in a variety of ways (standard number form, words, expanded form)
- creating largest and smallest numbers from a set of digits
- comparing and ordering numbers
- rounding numbers to the closest 10, 100, 1000

Patterns

- pattern attributes (sounds, shapes, letters, digits)
- repeating patterns (with a 'core')
- growing or decreasing patterns (find the 'rule')
- t-tables (identify the pattern rule)
- charts (noticing patterns in charts, problem solving)
- simple + and - equations

*Pay attention to patterns around you..*.
