Math Updates - Tr. Ahlam

Dear Parents,
Asalamu Alaikum
I hope this message finds you well and in good health.
During the month of September, students are exploring patterns and methods of organizing and displaying information about patterns. They will now apply their understanding of patterns to other concepts such as money, multiplication, and division. By the end of this unit your child will be able to identify, extend, create, and solve problems that use patterns. They will also be asked to use different organizational methods to display their information, such as tables, and charts.
Throughout this time, you can engage your child in activities such as:
  • Your child can look for patterns he/she sees in daily life, around the house, and in the community. Make a list of these places and create a chart to display them
  • Your child can create hi/her own counting pattern, involving all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division)
  • Your child can create an artistic 2-dimensional pattern or a 3-dimensional structure.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan for your help and cooperation in this matter.

Ahlam Rashid, (Math Teacher)
