#### Please reference the K-5 Scope and Sequence to see how mathematics skills are introduced and expanded within each grade level.

• building problem-solving skills and strategies
• multiplying and dividing with 2-digit numbers, fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals
• solving equations and evaluating inequalities
• finding the area of two dimensional shapes, and surface area and volume of three dimensional shapes
• using ratios and percents, and finding the probability of an event
• applying properties of angles, triangles, and four-sided figures

You can help your child build confidence as well as communication skills in mathematics by practicing newly acquired skills at home by encouraging opportunities to use math in everyday situations. Allow your child's math class-work or homework to guide you in determine the appropriate level of challenge.

• estimate sums, differences, products, and quotients of large numbers
• keep an eye out for ratios, percents and graphs

At home or at the supermarket, challenge your child to:

• decide which brand is more cost-effective
• find the surface area and volume of objects in the same shape of rectangular prisms
• classify triangles and find the area of triangular figures
• use calculators to work with household bills

On car or bus trips, allow your child to:

• identify various three-dimensional shapes
• read maps with scales expressed in ratio forms
