Math Class update 5.08

Let me start out by saying THANK YOU for reminding your children to come to math class, and for helping them learn how to use Google Meets. On the whole, things have been going pretty well. Please note that there is always a lesson video posted on Google Classroom on days when there is homework (usually MON and WED), for students who missed class or who need to revisit the material. Here is what we have been working on since Spring Break.

Math 4.13.20

Some students have not been turning in their assignments, or submitting the assignment without answers, so we are practicing by turning in the problems we do in class. We reviewed writing decimal numbers, and area of triangles. Then we had a lesson on how to calculate tax.

Homework for Wednesday is to assemble a 3D object from a given net, calculate its volume, and send me a picture. In addition, there is a decimals quiz.

TUES 4.07

Distance Learning Math with Janeen is back!
We meet online M W F 10:15-11:15
Link to join the class is on Google Classroom

This week, we will review operations, ordered pairs on the coordinate plane, probability, equations and area of triangles.

Students will be learning how to multiply decimals, by using a diagram
and by using an algorithim.

Check out my video to see an example problem.

Week 23

We reviewed fraction concepts this week – prime and composite numbers, factors and multiples, equivalence, identity property of one, and simplest form. Students also worked in small groups to solve a variety of fraction word problems, and to represent their solutions with diagrams and calculations.

Week 22!

Students continued to use hexagons to explore the loving relationship between math and art. Larger versions of their personal hexagons will be 3D printed, so other NNM students may use them as stencils for batiking textiles!

Students are also using diagrams to develop a better understanding of fraction division.
