Ideas for home
- To help your child with partial-product multiplication, practice facts involving multiples of ten. E.g. 4 × 40 (4 × 4 × 10 = 160), 4 × 400 (4× 4 × 100 = 1,600), 40 × 40 (4 × 4 × 10 × 10 = 1,600), etc.
- Use the array model when multiplying multi-digit numbers and discuss how it works.
- Estimate distances in various units. How long is the sidewalk? How long is a car? How many miles to school? Check the estimates using a variety of measurement tools (rulers, tape measure, and odometer) to help make measurement more concrete and easier to understand.
- Use an old clock with moveable hands to name the various angles formed. When the minute hand on a clock goes all the way around from 12 and back to 12, this is one complete revolution (or 360 degrees). When the minute hand goes from 12 to the 3, it has gone 1 4 of a revolution (90 degrees). Connect this to the expression “quarter after” when telling time.
- On a walk, take turns to point out right, acute, and obtuse angles in your environment (buildings, billboards, etc.)
