In Math today, the students began using their ability to recognize patterns and to write patterns rules to help them to solve problems. For example:
Sam earns $6 an hour babysitting. How much will Sam earn if he babysits for 5 hours.
Students can recognize that Sam earns $6 more each hour and use the pattern to solve how much money Sam will earn in 5 hours. Or if Sam can ever earn exactly $31. What do you think?
In Social Studies today, students continued to develop their understanding of map features. Today we added latitude and longitude to our growing understanding of maps. Remember, lines of latitude run east to west but they measure whether somewhere is north or south of the equator. Lines of longitude run north to south but they measure whether somewhere is east or west of the prime meridian. We will continue to work with latitude and longitude next week.
