Please let me know if you have questions.We spend a little time working on dividing fractions, but not as much as I had planned. Below is a Schoolnet for you to try if you would like to practice Dividing fractions. Some directions:1. Read the problem decide what is being divided (that can be tricky sometimes). That would be the fraction that comes first.2.). Write the equation.3.). Remember that video we watched (I will attach) To divide by a fraction heres a tip- Keep, Change, Flip4.) Keep the first number, change divide to multiply, Flip the second fraction (reciprocal- 1/4 would become 4/1- flip the order of numerator and denominator)5.). Multiply Reduce or Simplify fraction1.). Whate is Emma dividing? Cider so that fractions comes first2.). 1/3 dividied by 5/1Keep 1/3 change divide to multiply, change 5/1 to 1/51/3 x 1/5 = 1/151/15 is in simplest form because the numerator is 1.Your answer to number 2 is 1/15
Dividing Fractions with KEEP, CHANGE, FLIP | Fractions Rap Song (Youtube)Another objective we did not cover much was converting units when given a conversion sheet. I am attaching a Schoolnet for that as well. I know that some of the Freckle Math assignments and the Khan Academy deal with converting units of measurement. You can also google conversions. (Exam[;e how many liters are in a milliliter) or refer to your math practice book. You are going to either multiply or divide to convert measurement. Google for examples or go to Khan Academy- they have good YouTube on how to figure it out.
Sharika has 8 liters of soda in her shopping cart. Derrick has 6 liters of soda in his shopping cart. How many milliliters of soda do Derrick and Sharika have in both carts?
1.). How many are in both cart? add 8 liters + 6 liters = 14 liters2.). google conversion chart (prefix milli means 1,000). 1 liter= 1000 milliliters3.). 14 x 1,000= 14, 000 milliliters (ml)My hope is that you can get into Schoolnet with your password or QR coade- If you don't have it you can contact me. Like a lot of things, we are figuring this out as we go. I don't want you to overthink this or worry about it. My intent is to provide this because I knew Freckle Math started with measurement.Freckle Math-- Take the pretest in Freckle. It takes some time and if you don't know the answers, it is s ok. It will access where you are and give you practice. Then go into Practices with that skill. NOTICE THE HELP BUTTONS (EXAMPLE BELOW). You can watch a video or get an example that helps you. You will probably need to look at these tools to help you, since there is some material I have assigned that we have not covered this year..Khan Academy- I have added 5th grade objectives (5th grade 2018). You can join th class https://www.khanacademy.org/join/Class code is DK88RGPUI have added a video to Google classroom, and am currently trying to add videos from Khan Academy for how to add/subtract mixed numbers. If I am unable to successfully cut and paste, you can simply look up adding/ subtracting mixed numbers on Khan Academy. I have assigned some work for you in Khan Academy as well. Code and instructions are above. Earlier I suggested that you make your own accounts if you have that is fine as well.I hope that everyone is doing well. I put some updated resources on here for you.

Learning is very important, but your child's physical and mental well being is the most important thing!Math can make parents and children disagree. Be patient! I always tell students there is more than one way to solve.a problem, find the way that makes sense to you. If we are both traveling to a destination, we might go a different way, but as long as we get there that is the most important thing!I hope you find this information helpful, and remember it is NOT a requirement! I look forward to seeing everyone as soon as possible! God bless you and your family!
