The Nationals are off to a great start in Math with understanding integers.  Positive and negative numbers are used in far more areas than just our math text!  Temperature, altitude and of course, bank accounts are all real life examples of using integers.  

Our next Math unit delves into fractions.  Our work with the Greatest Common Factor and Least Common Multiple will be most helpful in our understanding of fractions.  An amazing strategy, “The Upside Down Birthday Cake” has minimized the work of determining Greatest Common Factor and amazingly enough...Least Common Multiple, as well!!!  You might say, making math a “piece of cake!”
