Math Update

posted Dec 26, 2016, 11:02 AM by Rebecca Tapley
Learning about slope was the focus in math class this week. Students became familiar with the terminology used to describe linear functions and took part in a "Polygraph" activity on desmos.com. To play this, students are paired with a partner in the class. One partner choses a line out of a set of 16 lines and the other student has to determine which line it is asking yes or no questions. This was an engaging activity that allowed students to hone their slope vocabulary. We also worked on some word problems involving the division of fractions. To end the week, we calculated the number of soda cans used to make Soda Santa and Soda Menorah!
