Math Warm-Ups April 15-19, 2013

Yeah, I know I’m posting this a week late.  Sorry! But better late than never, right? 🙂  (I also feel like I must explain that there are no warm-ups to post from this week–state testing left us with a different schedule than what’s normal.)

Monday

5th graders always need to practice division!

5th graders always need to practice division, and decimal division takes even more practice!

 

Wednesday

Often the problems we work on for morning warm-ups are from our monthly Edison assessments.  This was one that many of us got wrong, so it showed we needed to review graphs and their purposes.  It's a busy chart, I know, but that usually means we had a GREAT conversation around the problem!

Another thing we needed to talk about was measurement and the prefixes you use in the metric system.  After this, we did some work with find equivalent measures.  Have you ever heard of how King Henry Usually Drinks Chocolate Milk?  This was very helpful to us in our equivalents work.

How did you use math warm-ups this week?  Leave us an example!  Maybe we could try a problem together with you next week!
