This week the six grades are practicing orders of operations and equivalent expressions. This is a interesting year for them because they are introduced to a lot of new material and knowledge. We build knowledge by using edmentum and them playing math games for the hands on part of the lesson. They love the whole idea of friendly competition while learning and expanding knowledge from one another. Students always get away from the traditional classroom setting all the time. They learn a lot of mental math techniques and strategies to make some on the hardest things for them become the simplest.
