Just a few simple rules for the mathematicians before we could start math games for "Fun Friday"
Rule number 1: No arguing! We must synergize at all times.
Ruler number 2: No flying pattern blocks. Its all fun and games until someone gets hit with a shooting rhombus.
Rule number 3: Think like a mathematician, act like a third grader.
Rule number 4: Let's not forget the most important lesson of the week:
"Miss Lena, we ARE kids!!!"
(silly us, we always seem to forget that part!)
Finding the area of rectilinear shapes using the distributive property in color!
Today, in class I was so impressed with two of my superstar math teams! They worked together to solve the area and perimeter of various rectilinear shapes, using highlighters to see math in a whole new way!
Synergizing! "Together is better."
1. Using 1 inch by 1 inch white grid paper, cut out equal square units.
2. Using black construction paper, cut out black square units that are the same size for the hat.
3. Arrange your square units to create a snowman.
4. Glue your square units to your colored construction paper and add the eyes, the nose, the arms and the mouth.
5. Find the area of your snowman's snow, and label it on your paper. Snow= 30 square units
6. Find the area of your snowman's hat and label it.
Hat= 6 square units
7. Finally, find the total area of your snowman.
area of the hat + area of the snow = total area of your snowman.
*Be sure to label it on your paper and sign your name.*
Carl donated a bag of Hershey bars to the class. If Miss Lena put 6 Hershey bars on each plate, and there are 42 Hershey bars, how many plates are there?
Write the equation that matches the word problem.
There were 42 candy bars in the bag, but Miss Lena ate one, and Miss Adams ate one. If there are 20 students in the class, how many candy bars does each person get?
Kayla donated 60 chocolates to the class. If there are 20 students, how many chocolates does each person get?
Math + Art= Success
