The Upper Elementary students have been working hard on learning long division. They have learned they have to divide, multiply, subtract, and bring down.
I have been putting up math jokes each day on my board. The students really get a kick out of them, and some are even learning topics from other classes (for example: The students in geometry and Algebra 1 did not understand, so it was a good way to introduce SOH CAH TOA to them before they will learn about it in class). I’ve also had the students find jokes and submit them. One student submission was “ 3.14% of sailors are rates.”
In geometry, the students did an activity where they had to solve a murder mystery using properties of linear equations. They had to find the murderer, victim, location, and reason behind the murder. This activity helped the students practice with slope, y-intercepts, and solutions to linear systems through a fun activity to see who could solve the murder mystery first!
In Mrs. Coryer’s class, students have been very busy in social studies and science. They created various landforms out of clay and made various animal habitats . In math, students have been learning money skills by using Touchmath games.
