13. 13. Questions For FCAT 2.0• 3rd grade 35-45 multiple choice questions• 4th grade 35-45 multiple choice questions• 4th grade 10-15 Gridded response• 5th grade 35-45 multiple choice questions• 5th grade 10-15 Gridded response
14. 14. Math: What do Students have Trouble with? • Geometry Vocabulary • Algebraic Thinking (patterns) • Estimation • Measurement
15. 15. FCAT Math Assessment• The Third - Fifth grade FCAT math test is a multiple choice exam that covers all aspects of math from addition to algebra.• We provide daily FCAT math practice to our students. Example: 40 Day Countdown.• Each morning our students complete 5 FCAT style math problems for morning work. At Spanish Lake, we begin each math lesson by reviewing those problems with multiple ways to solve them before beginning the daily lesson.• Students also receive computer assisted instruction using Success maker, Gizmo, Florida Achieves, Brain Pop and FCAT Explorer.• Students will be assessed in the skill areas of addition, subtraction, rounding, telling time, multiplication, geometry, measurement, reading graphs, division, probability, fractions, and decimals.
16. 16. Everyday Math Opportunities: Cereal Box Newspaper Fast food paper bag Supermarket/Stores Multiplication CD in the car Recipe or easy mix boxes “Waiting room” magazine with educational emphasis Card or board game Flashcards Street signs & billboards
17. 17. Ways Parents Could Help• Learning doesn’t stop HERE.• Step 1- Read problem carefully.• Step 2- Underline Question-What are they asking you to find out?• Step 3- Circle clue words.• Step 4- Circle Numbers.• Step 5- Determine what action to take to solve problem.
18. 18. Problem Solving Strategies 1. Act out the problem 2. Use models and manipulatives 3. Make a picture or a diagram 4. Make a table or chart 5. Make an organized list 6. Work backwards 7. Use logical reasoning; deduction 8. Guess and check 9. Use or look for a pattern 10. Solve a simpler problem 11. Write an equation 12. Brainstorm ideas
19. 19. Steps to Prepare for FCAT Math• Provide assistance and practice flash cards using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.• Supervise/Tutor your child with their daily math homework.• Ask your child to log-in to FCAT Explorer (Florida Achieves), Brain Pop and Gizmo on home computer.
20. 20. Parent Involvement• Practice Computation• 3rd Grade- Multiplication• 4th Grade- Equivalent Fractions• Long Division• 2 digit Multiplication.• 5th Grade- Division• Adding and Subtracting Fractions• Decimals• Percents
