Our next field trip will be Tuesday, November 24th. If possible, please have your student wear their 3rd grade shirt. Also, if you selected home lunch please make sure to send it with your student.
This chapter is an introduction to division. We are trying to teach the students to think of division of repeated subtraction of equal groups just like we think of multiplication and repeated addition. We will be using a lot of modeling to show the students this concept.
There is a lot of new vocabulary for this chapter. There is divide, dividend (number being divided 15/3=5), divisor (number divided by 15/3=5), quotient (the answer 15/3=5), fact family (3×5=15, 5×3=15, 15/3=5, 15/5=3) and inverse operations (3×5=15, 15/3=5).
Here is a link to the pre-test so you can see what we are working toward being able to do. If you have any questions please let us know!!
