Number SenseCoach: Ms. Kronawitter
Individuals are called upon every day to use their ability to make quick mental calculations to make decisions. The development of such abilities should be an integral part of the math curriculum. Concepts covered include, but are not limited t addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, proportions, and use of mathematics notation.
Students will be given a 10minute, fillintheblank test which they must complete without doing calculations on paper or on a calculator. Erasures and markouts are not permitted.
