Target Audience

We think this is best for students 4th grade and up.

Testing?

YES.  Just like most of our micro-lessons there will be a test after this lesson. The entire class is 20 minutes long.

15 minutes will be devoted to material mixed with tests and games. The remaining 5 minutes for testing or retesting.
