5th / 6th Grade Math

Have A Great Summer!

Here are some concepts that you can practice over the summer that will help you be successful next year.

5th Grade:  Multiplication Facts 0-12

6th Grade:  Operations (Multiplication, Division, Subtraction, and Addition) with Fractions and Decimals

I hope you take time to relax and enjoy your summer.  If you feel like challenging yourself, here are a few brainteasers (for fun):

*Remember that brainteasers can be simpler than you think.

1) A train leaves from Halifax, Nova Scotia heading towards Vancouver, British Columbia at 120 km/hour.  Three hours later, a train leaves Vancouver heading towards Halifax at 180 km/hour.  Assume there is exactly 6000 km between Vancouver and Halifax.  When they meet, which train is closer to Halifax?

2)Using only addition, how do you add eight 8's and get the number 1000?

3)The day before yesterday, Chris was 7 years old.  Next year, he'll turn 10.  How is this possible?
