Two Tens for a Five

Thanks to Mrs. Melhorn for this funny video clip from the classic  comedians, Abbott & Costello.

It just goes to show you why understanding math is sooooo important!

Happy Wednesday. Enjoy!

Puzzling Math

Published by under Investigations Math

Hi Blog Visitors! We are so happy you are visiting (and hopefully commenting!) on our class blog.
We’d like to share our learning with you as often as we can…at least we’ll try! Here is a picture our teacher took of some number puzzles we were asked to solve.  We started off the unit with only being given two clues, then three, then 4. We learned about the importance of deciding which clue we should use first to help eliminate as many numbers as possible in order to lead us closer to the real answer. We’ve been gaining a better understanding of prime numbers, composite numbers, multiples, factors, and so on. Check it out!

(You may be prompted to save the PDF before it will download, or your computer settings may allow you to automatically download PDF files).  You will need a PDF viewer to be able to open these files.  You can download Adobe Acrobat Reader for FREE here.

These files are full of examples and explanations to help you understand whatever we covered in class.  Hopefully you won’t be stuck anymore!  If you are though, PLEASE ask Ms B. for help in the morning.
