Math – Bean finished Chapter 4 in MM2A. We definitely need to work more on the concepts. She doesn’t pay attention to the “-” or “+” signs and does what she thinks should be done. So instead of adding 24+38, she’ll subtract it. She also forgets to borrow if the ones digit for the first number in an equation is smaller than the second one. On her chapter test, she got an 83%.
