Quiz # 2: Tessellations & Time and Temp
Homework Packets-Books and Workbooks-Composition Books
Since the semester started, I have observed that some students were struggling with carrying their math binders, books, and workbooks from their lockers to my classroom. I decided to keep their books and workbooks in the class. Students may take them home on Friday if they would like to.
In order to help students stay organized, I would like my students to use graph ruled composition book to take notes. Please send a graph ruled composition book (100 pgs) by Sept 30, Wednesday. They will also keep their notebooks in class during the week. Students may take their notebooks home when they want to study.
Geoboard Activity and Tessellations
We had a math-tastic week in 5th grade math class. Students worked in groups to explore the perimeter and the area of rectangle and square by using their Geoboards and rubber bands. They recorded their findings and compared the areas of different rectangles with the same perimeter. They concluded that as the difference between the length and the width decreases, the area gets bigger.
Towards the end of the week, we learned about Tessellations. Students created their very own Tessellations. Enjoy the pictures below!
