Homework:  Take notebook home and study for properties quiz tomorrow.

>You need to be able to identify the distributive property “in action” on your SOL test this year and the easiest way to do this is to remember the properties you learned in 3rd and 4th grade so this new distributive property “pops” out at you.

Remember, the Distributive Property of Multiplication over addition

requires the use of both multiplication AND addition.  

Students are beginning to work with decimals again this year.  Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing them will be a big part of their SOL test.

This can be tricky for some especially when multiplying because they have to know when the decimal points should line up or not.  

Please monitor and help them complete their work at home as they practice these skills.
