This week we will continue to multiply fractions and our focus will now be on simplifying fractions before we multiply. To see an example of this click here: http://www.homeschoolmath.net/teaching/f/simplify_before_multiplying.php. We will also be introduced to division of fractions, for example something such as 1/8 divided by 4/5. We will use the language "Keep, change, flip" when attempting to solve this problem.
Report cards will go home on Thursday this week.
There will be no school on Friday, April 14th. Our school vacation is April 17th-April 21st.
