This week we continue to focus on using visual models to represent division problems. We will be exploring division of a fraction by a fraction and creating division stories to represent division problems. Modeling division visually is an important step in understanding computation strategies. Our focus this week is on visualizing and modeling division. Next week we will make the connection to equations and procedures that simplify computation, such as "invert and multiply."

All students should be using some kind of planner to record their homework and other assignments. I will continue to check that homework is written down and initial each day that it is recorded correctly. If work is finished in class, then the assignment can be checked as complete. Expect some math homework (1-5 problems) daily.
