Use Your Math Savvy
Last week, we discussed pulling information out of your head to solve math problems and noticing extra or missing information. Sometimes, we need to know things like how many days their are in a week or year, minutes in an hour, or cups in a pint... or recognize that we need to figure it out what we do need. This is often frustrating when we are trying to do our work because it becomes an extra step. This week, we will celebrate finding word problems we need to do just that!
Try going to IXL, Math Goodies, KwixNet, more IXL. Find a word problem here or write your own. Tell us what was tricky. What did you need to do? You first need to explain how you solved it, then tell us what was extra, missing, or needed for information. Then solve the problem.
We will do something with this in class Friday. So, do your best work to help us with a fun Friday.
