Christmas Break Polar Express Math Extra Credit
The extra credit was given to every student today and they were encouraged to take it home to complete. It is due 1/7/19. No late work will be accepted.
All of their work must be numbered and neatly shown on the back, or on lined paper to get credit for their answers.
I also want to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a safe and relaxing new year. See you all in 2019.
Homework: As a final review for the 2nd CCPS math benchmark tomorrow, finish the 2nd 9 Week Benchmark/Test Study guide. For most that will be questions #30-40 because #’s 1-29 were either done as homework or completed in class.
USE THE circle, perimeter, area and volume BRAIN DUMPS!
Be sure ALL answers are written on both the study guide AND answer pg.
If you think you are finished, take time to go back and re-read the questions and really double check your work and your answers. Refer to examples and strategies that may help if you get stuck on something.
DO NOT JUST GUESS! This is being taken for a take-home test grade!
Homework: It does not happen often, but I am assigning a little work over the weekend. This is in an effort to catch up from snow days and in preparation for the 2nd 9 week county benchmark next Tuesday. My end of term test will be administered after break and we’ve reviewed more.
**The assignment is to finish(started in class) study guide questions #’s 21-29 only(skip the other questions). These are all computation questions that will requre them to add/subtract/multiply/divide whole numbers and decimals. >>Because it’s been a while since I taught these skills(1st 9 weeks), I recommend that they refer to their notebooks 1st as a review prior to working through these 9 problems. There are plenty of step by step examples in their notebooks!
AT LEAST 10 MINUTES OF TIME WAS PROVIDED IN CLASS
**Make sure they number and show their work for every solution on the lined/grid paper provided and also write their answers on answer sheet.
Refer to yesterday’s post for SCA sponsored spirit day schedule for next week.
Social Studies benchmark is Monday and Math is Tuesday.
Our Holiday celebration is next Thursday following the school wide sing-a-long and our Reading Buddy activity with the Ms. Mair’s pre-k class.
Perimeter/Area/Volume Extra Credit
I hope you are taking the opportunity to get outside and play in the snow. While you thaw out and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, take a look at these extra credit problems.
Mr. Sparico needed to shovel the snow from his driveway so he could get to the grocery store following the snow storm yesterday. He has a long rectangular driveway that is 47 feet long and 13 feet wide, so there was a lot of snow to shovel.
Part 1: What is the perimeter of Mr Sparico’s driveway?
Part 2: What is the area of his driveway that was covered by snow?
Part 3: Mr Sparico’s back porch is 48 inches long and 32 inches wide. If the snow was 8 inches high, what is the volume of snow that fell on his porch?
Each part is worth 5 extra credit points with a potential for 115 extra credit pts.
To earn the points you MUST:
Turn assignment in the day we return to school(no late work accepted).
Answers must include the correct units of measurement.
ALL work must be submitted. No “I did it in my head” will be accepted.
Bundle up and get out to enjoy the snow!
Homework: Complete the perimeter, area(rectangle/squares/triangles) review sheet. Be sure to refer to completed ex’s in notebook as needed and use the foldable manipulative as well that was created in class today.
I will not be in school tomorrow, so homework will be collected Friday. Please speak to you child about appropriate behavior in class when a substitute teacher is needed.
