Hello Parents please see updates and homework below:

|MATH (3A&3B)||· Read, write, and understand place value to 10,000.
· Write 5-digit numbers in expanded, standard and word form.
· Develop skills in solving word problems.
· Mental math strategies – look for 10. Students should know all the numbers that add up to ten(2+8;7+3;6+4;5+5;1+9). This is then used to solve questions like 4+8+6. Ss identify 6+4=10 and then can easily add 10+8=18. All this is done without counting on fingers.
