### Update

Hello,

This week in Math students learned how to multiply whole numbers by fractions through modeling and dividing out common factors. This helps students understand how we take parts of a whole like 2/3 of 9 cakes. Students were given the opportunity to solve challenges like 25/75 by 50/150 by 33/99 and then the big one: 65/196 by 84/225 by 90/169. Here students had to identify common factors of 14, 15, and 16 and then divide them out to get a simplified solution of 6/91. A new Tic Tac Challenge was given out for the month of March. A new Problem of the Week will be given out on Monday.

This week in Science students completed a study guide to be used to create flash cards for the Solar System Test. Students also explained in essay form what causes day and night, the difference between a revolution and a rotation, and why we can only see certain constellations at each time of year.

Thanks,

Chris
