Last week, we completed our previous unit by taking the unit test and started our next unit on adding and subtracting fractions. We first reviewed how to calculate equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing both the numerator and denominator by the same number. We then looked at how to simplify fractions using division and the greatest common factor. This week, we will continue looking at simplifying fractions, making an estimation of fractions represented by pictures and diagrams, and then using estimation to complete the addition and subtraction of fractions. There will be no progress reports early this week, but I will send some home on Friday before spring break.
