Today we continued working on graphing patterns, where we were given a set of data and had to input in a graph or answer questions regarding information about a graph.

Example question – Juanita is paid $6 an hour to mow lawns. For 2 hours she is paid $12, for 4 hours she is paid $24, for 6 hours she is paid $36, and for 8 hours she is paid $48. The pattern rule for this question is, multiply the hours work by 2 (2 x 6 =12, 6 x 8 =48). Remember when creating your graphs to include a title, two labels, an appropriate scale, and to use the information in the charts/tables. We will continue this tomorrow!

Key points to remember:

For three digit multiplication -  2 x 200 x 6. I can multiply 2 x 200 = 400 and then 400 x 6 = 2400 – remember to make it easy for yourself – multiply 4 x 6 = 24 then add the 2 zeros.

Algebra is a way to solve an equation where you are missing a part of the question. For example A x 5 = 45. All we do to solve this question is bring the 5 to the other side of the = sign. So, A = 45/5 = 9, so A = 9. We need to make sure we change the operation from x to / when we move the 5.

A math question from today!


Today we had some quiet reading time. We also continued to practice our Arts’ Night performance. The song that we are singing is ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’ by Will Smith, which is a rap song. For our costumes/outfits, I am asking for jean (baggy if possible), t-shirts, skater shoes/jogging shoes, baseball hats (we will wear them sideways), and big gold chains. Our Arts’ Night performance will take place on Wednesday, May 30. There will be two performances, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. We are asking that all students arrive at The City Church no later that 6:30.
