7R – Math

Good morning!

Go Math: We are currently in module 9: circumference, area, and volume. Students have learned how to find the circumference and area of circle. Our next lesson will focus on finding the area of composite figures. They will learn how to break a composite figure into familiar shapes, find the area of each shape, and add them together to find the area of the entire figure. 9.4 focuses on solving surface area problems and 9.5 focuses on solving volume problems.

Simple Solutions: We are still cruising through these lessons. Lessons 49 and 50 are due on Friday. Each week, we do the next do simple solutions lessons. Every day in class, students have the first ten minutes to work on the lessons and ask me questions.

Fun Activities: In preparation for Pi Day, students did a “discovering pi” activity where they learned how pi came into existence. They measured circular objects around the room. Students had to find the circumference and the diameter. When they divided those two numbers, they should have seen a pattern with all the objects. Circumference/Diameter = 3.14. We will be celebrating Pi Day – March 14th – students are welcome to bring in pies or they can bring in $3 and I will buy pies! 🙂
