This week we spent the first part of the week on some Algebra Skills that were hurting our work with supplementary and complementary angles. We introduces a project where the students are to give a brief 3 minute presentation where ANGLES are seen in sports, work, or other activities. I met with students on Friday to check on their progress. They are researching Hair Styles, Basketball, Softball, wrestling, and many other areas. The Presentations are DUE on Thursday. I can't wait to see what they have found.
We also started working on Area and Perimeter in terms of Squares, Rectangles and regular shaped polygons. My favorite part of the week was the Area of a Triangle Rap.
YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS! It's great. (OK, the kids think I'm nuts. But it is a pretty crazy way to learn a formula!)
Flocabulary Triangle Area RAP!
This week we will work with more BASIC Geometry CIRCLES. We will also work on improving our Math and Algebra Skills.
