Thank you, Mrs Waters, for finding this method of multiplication for our class! We really liked learning it. It reminds us of a puzzle!

Math using Microsoft

Microsoft programs can be used for many purposes. We enjoyed using the Microsoft program Power Point for our math class today.

Today we learned about Venn diagrams. We first used even numbers and multiples of three. Then we got to make another Venn diagram using the laptops. Winter Sports was the title of our diagram. We made it have colors and the sports that i chose were, snowboarding, sledding and skiing. It was very fun.  - Tommy
