No Homework Tonight!

Thank you for your hard work on the Prognosis Test.  If you haven't completed the test, we will find a time for you to do so in the next couple of days!  Please check in with me if you need to arrange a time outside of class.

No homework!  Have a lovely Passover if you are celebrating the holiday!  I will be going to a family friend's house for my Seder this evening!

See you tomorrow when we will continue working with irregular figures and attending a presentation on the upcoming Math-a-thon tomorrow.

Discovering the Area of Triangles

Everyone did an excellent job of creating posters explaining how we determine the area of a triangle!  Tonight's homework is to complete worksheet 4-6 on Triangles.  You may use a calculator.  Be sure to include labels as you work; area is squared!

A = Base times Height divided by 2

Minute to Win It!

I hope that everyone enjoyed class today!  I know that I had a blast!

Here are the results!

In the Cup Stack, Red and White Class had the high score with 7 cups stacked at the end of a minute!!!!

The Pencil Bounce had four winners that got all 10 pencils in the container!  There was a ten in red and green classes and two people got tens in blue class!!!

The pasta pick up had a winner in red class and white class, and they tied with 13 pieces of pasta!

The candy carry was dominated by green class in which one person was able to transfer 19 pieces of candy!

Here's the data below!  (Sorry it is a little messy!  It was hard to transfer so much data with the colors, etc.)

Tomorrow in class we will use excel to find the mean, median, mode and range!  Then we begin our second look at Geometry!

No homework tonight!  Have a great night!
