Well this is partially a brag on DS6's school...and partly for him. He is in 4th grade math this year and we were told at our last conference he will be completing 5th this year as well and then moving to 6th grade next year. On his homework assignment last night the math coordinator wrote that he is already ahead on the 5th grade work and and his homework was a few enrichment word problems and to "play with hexidecimals" which quite honestly I didn't know what that was until I asked DS and he explained it and started converting numbers into binary and hexidecimal. smile I just thought it was really cute that was his homework, and so glad to see the school challenging him some. They are also now giving him 4th grade ELA now too and will hopefully write it into his plan for next year.
