**Measuring Fingers**

Family Note Today your child measured objects to the nearest \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch by using \(\frac{1}{8}\) -inch markings on a ruler to determine which \(\frac{1}{4}\) -inch mark was closer to the end of the object. When measuring an item, if one end is lined up with the 0 mark and the other end is to the right of the \(\frac{1}{8}\) -inch mark, the measure is rounded to the next larger \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch. If the end of the item is to the left of the \(\frac{1}{8}\) -inch mark, the measure is rounded to the next smaller \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch. Help your child trace his or her hand and use the \(\frac{1}{8}\) -inch marks on the ruler to measure finger lengths to the nearest \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch.

Question 1.

Cut out the ruler below. Carefully trace around one of your hands in the space below. Measure the length of each traced finger to the nearest \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch. Write the measurement on each finger. Remember to record the unit.

Answer:

Question 2.

Have someone at home trace his or her hand on the back of this page. Measure the lengths of the traced fingers to the nearest \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch. Write the measurements above each finger.

**Extended Facts: Multiplication and Division**

Family Note Today your child learned to use basic multiplication facts, such as 4 × 6 = 24, to solve extended multiplication facts, such as 4 × 60, by thinking of groups of ten. For example, 4 × 60 can be thought of as 4 × 6 [10s]. If you know that 4 × 6 = 24, then you also know that 4 × 6 [10s] = 24 [10s] or 240. The same approach works for extended division facts like 120 ÷ 3 = 40. If you know that 12 ÷ 3 = 4, then you also know that 12 [10s] ÷ 3 = 4 [10s] or 40. The extended Fact Triangles below work the same way as the basic Fact Triangles.

Fill in the extended Fact Triangles. Write the extended fact families .

Question 1.

________ × ________ = ________

________ × ________ = ________

________ ÷ ________ = ________

________ ÷ ________ = ________

Answer:

20 x 8 = 160.

8 x 20 = 160.

160 ÷ 8 = 20.

160 ÷ 80 = 2.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

160 and 8.

I used basic multiplication facts to solve extended multiplication facts.

20 x 8 = 160.

8 x 20 = 160.

160 ÷ 8 = 20.

270 ÷ 9 = 30.

270 ÷ 30 = 9.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

30 and 9.

I used basic multiplication facts to solve extended multiplication facts.

9 x 30 = 270.

30 x 9 = 270.

270 ÷ 9 = 30.

270 ÷ 30 = 9.

Question 3.

________ × ________ = ________

________ × ________ = ________

________ ÷ ________ = ________

________ ÷ ________ = ________

Answer:

6 x 40 = 240.

40 x 6 = 240.

240 ÷ 6 = 40.

240/40 = 6.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

240 and 6.

I used basic multiplication facts to solve extended multiplication facts.

6 x 40 = 240.

40 x 6 = 240.

240 ÷ 6 = 40.

240/40 = 6.

Question 4.

Write your own.

________ × ________ = ________

________ × ________ = ________

________ ÷ ________ = ________

________ ÷ ________ = ________

Answer:

9 x 30 = 270.

30 x 9 = 270.

270 ÷ 9 = 30.

270 ÷ 30 = 9.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

30 and 9.

I used basic multiplication facts to solve extended multiplication facts.

9 x 30 = 270.

30 x 9 = 270.

270 ÷ 9 = 30.

270 ÷ 30 = 9.

**Making Conjectures and Arguments**

Family Note Today your child learned how conjectures and arguments are related. In mathematics, a conjecture is a statement that is thought to be true, and an argument is the mathematical reasoning used to show whether a conjecture is true or false. In the problem below, children are asked to find two different ways band members can be arranged for marching. Then they are asked to choose which arrangement they think is better. When children are asked to explain the reasoning for their choice, they are being asked to make an argument. Encourage your child to show the mathematical reasoning he or she used in the explanation for which arrangement is better.

Question 1.

There are 24 members in the school band. The band director wants them to march in rows with the same number of band members in each row. Find two different ways that the band members can be arranged. Draw a sketch that shows each arrangement.

Answer:

The two different ways are 6 x 4 = 24.

4 x 6 = 24.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

There are 24 members in the school band.

The band director wants them to march in rows with the same number of band members in each row.

so the two different ways are 6 x 4 = 24.

4 x 6 = 24.

Question 2.

Which way do you think is better? Explain your reasoning.

Answer:

I think the two ways are better.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

There are 24 members in the school band.

The band director wants them to march in rows with the same number of band members in each row.

so the two different ways are 6 x 4 = 24.

4 x 6 = 24.

**Factor Bingo**

Family Note Today your child learned to play Factor Bingo to practice identifying factors of products. When the circled products on the game mat form a row, column, or diagonal, your child can call Bingo!

Look for a product for each factor in the table below on the Factor Bingo game mat. Circle the product on the game mat and record it next to the factor in the table. You can only use each product on the game mat one time. Explain to someone at home how you chose that product. For example, 2 is a factor of 6 because 2 × 3 equals 6. Call out Bingo! if you get five products in a row, column, or diagonal.

Question 1.

Answer:

Factors of 5 = 10, 3 = 9, 10 = 60, 4 = 8, 7 = 21, 3 = 12, 2 = 16, 9 = 18, 5 = 15, 4 = 20, 8 = 24.

**Locating Fractions**

Family Note Today your child located and plotted fractions on a number line. To plot fractions accurately, children applied their understanding of fraction locations as a distance from 0 to an end point. They also made comparisons to 0, \(\frac{1}{2}\), and 1 and used equivalence to place fractions. Ask your child to explain how he or she placed the fractions below on the number line.

Question 1.

Fill in the missing fractions on the number line. Choose from the fractions in the box below.

Answer:

The missing fractions are 1/4 and 7/8.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

the fractions in the box below.

the missing fractions are 1/4 and 7/8.

they are in order.

Question 2.

Explain how you placed fraction A on the number line.

Answer:

The distance from the fraction is the same.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

the distance from fraction A to 1 was about the same distance as 0 to 1/8.

so I knew fraction A was 7/8.

I know that 3/4 is equivalent to 6/8.

so the next point is 7/8.
