We did these 2 problems from Five Triangles mathematics.
My geometry kids are working on this problem from Five Triangles mathematics: My algebra kids too loved this game Solitaire on a Circle.
My geometry students are working on this geometric transformations workout #1-#9. Good stuff. (I got this from one of our UCSB Common Core Math Project workshops.) The 6th graders continued with Designing Buildings.
Fantastic lesson every time. I wrote it up here.
A shorter version (no popcorn) of this lesson from last year.
Day 2 where students were given another classmate’s paper to work with.
My 6th graders are working on percentages and “Basketball IQ” from Mathalicious is a slam dunk lesson for this. It’s just more fun to watch clips of real basketball games and calculate the NBA and WNBA players’ shooting percentages. My geometry kids worked constructed the 9-point circle. They followed my instructions to construct and locate […]
I absolutely loved this lesson last year and wrote about it. It went well again this year! Some of the kids saw the pattern right away but are finding it challenging to find the nth stage.
We started this on Day 128. A student is explaining how his group solved the problem.
I got this problem from Five Triangles mathematics. One group may have the solution, but the rest are still struggling. The group that may have the solution is now drawing this problem on GSP.
