his is the last week before Review Week and students finish off learning how to multiply by 2-digit numbers. They will learn how to multiply 2-digit numbers using regrouping, choose a multiplication method (partial products or regrouping) based on their preference, and solve multi-step 2-digit multiplication word problems using bar models.

On Thursday, students will learn how to read tables and how to retrieve information from tables to answer questions.

On Friday, students start gearing up for Review Week by starting Math Trivia Day; in which students will form teams and compete to solve a series of random math problems based on what they have learned from week 1 to week 8.
