Wednesday October 17, 2018

Wonderful Wednesday!!!

We began the day with Math. We continued learning about squaring, square numbers and square roots. We took up the homework as a class and answered any misconceptions. We also worked on problem solving questions in groups to get a better understanding of squaring, square numbers and square roots. 

A Square Number is When the quotient is equal to the divisor, the dividend is a square number 

Square:The square of a number is the number times itself. For example, the square of 3 is 3x3. The square of 4 is 4x4. 

Squaring: When we multiply a number by itself, we square the number. 
Squaring: 7x7 = 49
So 7²=49

Square rootThe square root is just the opposite of the square. You can think of it as the "root" of the square or the number that was used to make the square. 

√49 = √ 7²


The square root of a number is a value that, when multiplied by itself, gives the number.

Example: 4 × 4 = 16, so a square root of 16 is 4.

Next, we had French.

After first recess and lunch we worked in our literature circles and discussed chapter 18 for our novel study, City of Ember. 

Next, we wrote our own Before Midnight Poem using the success criteria provided: 
Learning Goal: I can write a Before Midnight Poem using the proper format. 
Success Criteria: In my Before Midnight Poem …
oeach line countdowns the minutes to midnight
oincludes 5 senses (taste, touch (feel), smell, sight(see), hear) 
ohas 6 lines
oIs scary, tense, or suspenseful 
oincludes the word ‘midnight’ in each line 
Then we worked on our third triangle for our Zentangle Art. 

Next, we worked on building and testing our electric cars.

At the end of the day we had physical education with Mr. Orr.
