Blue Whales Work Sums & Strategies (4 weeks)

Blue whales are the largest animals we know to have ever lived on Earth—they can get as long as 100 feet! They can weigh as much as 30 elephants together and are unusually loud. Let's work on sums and strategies as we solidify our addition and subtraction skills with positive and negative numbers (and a blue whale or two).

 

Through in-class activities and independent practice, students will:

  • Gain fluency with addition of integers by choosing two numbers to sum to a target value
  • Add and subtract positive and negative whole numbers on a number line using their own strategies
  • Choose efficient strategies for solving addition problems with decimals to the tenths and hundredths
  • Choose efficient strategies for solving subtraction problems with decimals to the tenths and hundredths
  • Add integers between -10 and 10
  • Subtract integers between -10 and 10


Swift Foxes Fix Fractions and Decimals (4 weeks)

Sometimes, it's hard to fix fractions and decimals because they are so small (and fall apart so fast!), so we have to employ swift foxes. The swift fox is the smallest of the wild dogs in North America (about the size of a domestic cat) and they can run up to 37 mph (60 kph). Time to fix some fractions and decimals, and be quick about it, too!

 

  • Add and subtract positive and negative decimal numbers on a number line using their own strategies
  • Gain fluency with addition of rational numbers by choosing two numbers to sum to a target value
  • Round numbers to the ones and tenths place and compare rational numbers

 

Marine Iguanas Manipulate Variables and Decimals (4 weeks)

Marine iguanas are endemic to the Galapagos Islands and are the only marine lizard species in the world. These iguanas can voluntarily stop their hearts for up to 45 minutes to deter nearby sharks. While their hearts are stopped, they practice multiplying and dividing variables and decimals. 

 

  • Multiply expressions with one or two variables using an array as a model
  • Divide up to a four-digit number by a two-digit number using the standard algorithm, also known as "long division"
  • Solve a division problem with decimals using the standard algorithm, also known as "long division"

 

Red Pandas Read Word Problems (4 weeks)

Red pandas like eating bamboo and sweet food, and love spending most of their time eating and sleeping. All things considered, they don't really like learning things that don't apply to them. So they learn math through word problems! Word problems help us learn math skills in an applicable fashion. In this class, we're covering a comprehensive review of previously learned math skills with a focus on strengthening weaker areas. Let's do some word problems and review our math skills!

 

  • Review all previously learned math skills and fix weaker areas (see above)

*There is an additional $45 charge for DreamBox, which is a one-time purchase for the entire school year. Here at The Thinking Kid, we utilize the DreamBox Math App to enable our students to practice math skills outside of the classroom. DreamBox engages students through math games to test their proficiency in math concepts discussed in class. DreamBox access is essential to student success in our math program.
