Greetings from Advanced Math
Continued Blessings to all my students and their families
I am looking forward conference time on either November 13, 2020 or November 16, 2020. Please remember the allotted time for each conference is fifteen minutes, so please come prepared with any questions you may have for me about what and how your child or children are doing.
Fifth grade is currently working with very hard using real numbers in all algorithms. Fractions have been somewhat of a challenge, but a very important aspect of upper mathematics. Before the end of the month they will be applying all that they know to Geometry.
Sixth grade has been moving quite quickly through the grade level math and has been illustrated their readiness for the basic properties with Algebra.
Seventh grade finishing basic geometry and will be back working with linear equations.
Eighth grade is realizing how all the hard work last year is “paying off” this year. So far just about every lesson has been a review of something from last year. By the end of November they will have completed 42% of high school Algebra.
Problems of the month
What three consecutive numbers sum is:
In a bag full of marbles, 1/4 of these marbles are green, 1/8 are blue, 1/12 are yellow and the remaining 26 white.
How many marbles are blue?
If the length of the side of a square is doubled, what is the ratio of the areas of the original square to the area of the new square?
The division of a whole number N by 13 gives a quotient of 15 and a remainder of 2.
