Welcome back to the beginning of another week everyone. We hope you enjoyed the amazing weather this weekend!

Math:  Today we we related fractions to division statements. For example if we have 6/4 we can write this as 6 divided by 4. We see that 4 can only go into 6, once and we will have a remainder of two. So our final answer will be 1 2/4 - a mixed number. When we use our multiplication and division skills we can do this with any problem.

For homework we are simply working on re-writing the fractions into division statements and then writing division statements into fractions. Tomorrow in class we will work on answer each of the questions assigned from the homework.

We also reviewed some of the concepts that we have learned so far to check our understanding.
