A song about measuring perimeter and area? Sure, why not!

The times facts are coming! The times facts are coming!!

On Monday, students performed a times fact pre-test to determine the accuracy and speed of their basic times facts recall.  That sheet went home Monday night, in their homework duotang.

Today, students were given time to prepare flash cards of the facts they either did not know or did not know quickly enough.  They have been coached to study their facts for just five to ten minutes every night – seven days a week!  Hopefully, they will be able to tell you how they are to be studying, as we reviewed and practiced that today!

Students will be randomly tested on their times facts recall over the next few weeks, to encourage them to practice seriously.  We will also practice time facts in class, of course.

And soon, we will all be practicing long form multiplication!  🙂

Art in Math?

Math is everywhere?

Math is in doodles

Math is in nature
