This week we had a lot of fun exploring two math concepts. On Wednesday, we took our math lesson into the hallway. Students worked in groups using various tools to find the perimeter of shapes taped on the hallway floor. Ask your child how to figure perimeter. (Measure all sides then add the lengths.) Here are some photos of our perimeter exploration.
On Thursday, we used pattern blocks for a probability experiment. The students predicted which shape they thought was most likely to land on an edge when rolled like dice; a square, triangle, or rhombus. They conducted the experiment to check their predictions. We discovered that the double triangle is most likely to land on an edge. We had a lot of fun with this probability experiment. Enjoy some photos!
