Student access to online textbooks can be found by clicking on "Links" on the right and then "Pearson". Once on the login screen student usernames and passwords are as follows:
User: Tomball<student ID>
Password: TISD<student ID><first initial><last initial>
Example: John Smith
Students have been given this information as well and it is the same login they had last year. If you want your student to have extra practice at home, I will be posting the pages that correspond to what we are doing in class. Please note that just because the pages are posted, it is not my expectation that students are completing all of them. If you want your student to have extra practice, focus on the word problems, not the calculations.
This Week in Math:
We are working on long division using partial products. This is not the standard algorithm but a more conceptual and fluid way to divide numbers. We will also be focusing on what happens to our remainders. Text book pages are: 363 - 460.
We have also covered everything that comes before that if you want your student to work on previous concepts.
This Week in Science:
For this week and next week we will be exploring how different forces affect objects. We will be discussing gravity, friction, push, pull and mechanical energy.
