Connected Mathemematics 2: A Break from Everyday Math and a peak into Middle School Math
Hello Parents and Friends!
This week we will begin a new math unit, called "Prime Time". This unit is about factors and multiples. The Seattle School District made the choice a couple of years ago to moved two of the sixth grade units to fifth grade in order to supplement our Everyday Math units of study. The other unit of study is called "Bits and Pices", which has to do with fractions and decimals.
The homework will look different. There will be more reading involved. The homework should still take about 20 minutes, leaving another half hour for your child to read.
