Introduction

Welcome to my webpage!

My name is Kenix Bui and I am the lead teacher for the 5th grade team at Pioneer Crossing Elementary. Let me introduce myself so you would know a little bit about me. I have been a teacher for over 12 years. Of those years, I had taught post-secondary education for several years and the past few years I had been in elementary bilingual.

I grew up in Austin and had lived in the Pioneer Crossing community since 2005. I have two small children of my own, both boys, that are attending Pioneer Crossing Elementary as well.

I am looking forward to a very successful year and I know you are too. It is my goal to provide all students with an engaging and fun learning experience in my classroom.

UNIT

KEY CONCEPTS:

  • Estimation
  • Multiply 2 digits by 3 digits
  • Divide 4 digits by 2 digits
  • Add and subtract whole numbers fluently

ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS (posted in class):

  • When is multiplication needed to solve a problem?
  • How are multiplication and division related?
  • How can the same problem situation be represented by both multiplication and division?
  • How is the distributive property related to the standard algorithms for multiplication and division?
  • How does the efficient and accurate use of the standard algorithms aide in fluently solving multiplication and division problem?
