Study Tips:

Students must copy notes down exactly the way I write it. If not, they will have difficulty understanding things later. They should bring their binder home every night. This way they will know the correct procedure for their homework and learn it for tests and quizzes. In addition, the students need to review their notes and memorize the definitions, steps, directions, etc. The math notes are located here for fourth grade and here for fifth grade.

Students also need to constantly review basic math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). If they struggle with these or don't know them quickly, it will make the rest of their work very difficult.

Math builds. Once a concept has been tested, it will still come up, over and over, during the rest of the year, and for much of the rest of the student's school math career.

Math Facts:

It is extremely important for your child to know all of their math facts: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It will be harder for your child if they have to take a lot of time to figure out basic math while they are working on new concepts. This will slow them down in general. Something that can work is drilling your child on facts every night (not every fact, but pick some). Below are some links for math games so they can practice facts.

We do timed tests every day in math. Students all start with x10, then if they pass, they move on to the next one (all multiplication facts first, then some mixed facts, then division). If they don't pass the one test (finish all questions and all are correct), they will take it again the next day. These are not graded.
