In math, we are coming to a close on our mean, median, mode, range and probability chapter. We will begin studying our fractions unit.
NEW CONTENT FOR MATH
Dear Family, In this chapter, your child will learn more about computing with fractions and mixed numbers. Some of the skills your child will practice are: • adding and subtracting fractions • converting between mixed numbers and improper fractions • finding a fraction of a set • solving real-world problems.
Estimada familia: En este capítulo, su hijo aprenderá más acerca del cálculo con fracciones y números mixtos. Algunas de las destrezas que practicará su hijo incluyen: • sumar y restar fracciones • convertir entre números mixtos y fracciones impropias • hallar una fracción de un conjunto • resolver problemas reales
Activity Finding the fraction of a set or a number is a useful skill with many applications in everyday life. Look out for opportunities like the following to help your child practice this skill: • While traveling by bus or car, tell your child that the distance between two points, say your home and school, is 4 miles. Ask your child to calculate the distance between the school and another place, say the library, which is half-way between school and home. (Answer: 1 /2 × 4 = 2 mi) • Tell your child that you read 1/ 4 of a book that has a total of 100 pages. Ask your child to find how many pages you read. (Answer: 1 /4 × 100 = 25 pages)
Vocabulary to Practice
A mixed number represents the sum of a whole number and a fraction. Example: 2 1/4
An improper fraction has a numerator that is equal to or greater than its denominator. It represents a fraction that is greater than or equal to 1. Example: 7/3 The division rule can be used to rename an improper fraction as a mixed number. 9 /4 = 9 ÷ 4 = 2 R 1 9 /4 = 2 1/ 4
The multiplication rule can be used to rename a mixed number as an improper fraction. 3 3/ 4 = 3 + 3/ 4 = 3 × 4 /4 + 3/ 4 = 12 /4 + 3/ 4 = 15/ 4
Please practice adding, subtracting, and multiplication facts.
