New Math Unit ~ Do you think we’ll MEASURE up?
Today we started an new unit for math. The grade 7 and 8′s will be studying measurement. In this first unit of measure we will be looking at metric conversions, area of a rectangle (review), area of a triangle (3 ways), area of paralellogram and area of a circle.
To start off our unit we spent some time working on our measuring skills. We measured things in class and outside ~ enjoying a beautiful fall day. Even jumping in some leaves for good measure – Ha!
Does your class do fun things at the beginning of new units? Let me know what they are, just reply with a comment!
