In her last official act of fourth grade, Mackenzie took her CAT test. I think it went well.
She was introduced to some new skills, like adding fractions. Math-U-See has a totally different scope & sequence then public schools and other curriculums, so she won't be learning about fractions until next year. Then she'll learn about them in depth.
The differences in scope & sequence haven't stopped Mackenzie yet. Math-U-See has given such a great understanding of the whys, as well as the hows, of math that she's always managed to figure out how to do what she hasn't been taught yet. I just love it.
Before the test we had a fun trip to the Virginia Living Museum. Their current traveling museum was about butterflies. Very timely since our last science unit was on butterflies.
