# Operations, Decimals and Space

#### In A Galaxy Far Far Away…

This module takes place on the distant planet of Eldamore in a galaxy far far away.

Earth has become overpopulated, and humans have looked to distant neighbouring planets to help create more space. In order to safely colonize the planet, we need your child’s help to regulate the gravitational field by gaining satellite control of the moons of Eldamore.

The alien Cipher (also the name for decimal) wants control of Eldamore so it can use the planet to make a doomsday device and destroy not only our new found planet, but possibly most of the galaxy.

Students must work on learning and improving their understanding of decimals and use teamwork to defend Eldamore and gain control of the six moons. By working with decimals, students can help battle Cipher and the alien horde so that the people of our earth have a safe place to go.

Students will practice their math operations throughout this battle, including adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. By providing support in learning the building blocks of mathematics and engaging in a fun and interactive learning environment, your child will begin to thrive.

Math skills and confidence often go hand-in-hand. For many students, mastering math concepts can boost their confidence level. Likewise, students who are confident in their math skills often find that they excel in the subject. This is why many parents choose to enroll their children in Dropkick Math. The goal is to give kids a strong foundation in math so they can confidently approach the subject.

Why is this topic important for my child to learn?

• So children can…
• Approach new mathematical problems with flexibility
• Develop multiplicative thinking skills
• Improve their understanding of place values and decimals
• Determine the most efficient way to solve a problem
• Practice teamwork
• Gain the confidence to move on to fractions
• Develop operational sense and fluency
