FOURTH LESSON WITH DR. YEAP TODAY~
Today’s agenda: fractions, multiplications and polygons
After doing problem 13 and 14, we discovered that “9” is a magical number!!
Some tricks for doing multiplications of 9…
Ever wonder why it only happens to “9”?? Let’s think about it…
PROBLEM OF THE DAY
Problem 17: Making polygons using geo board.
Joining dots on the geo board with straight lines to form different polygons, what are the different polygons that you can make?
I had fun trying out different ways to form polygons with 1 dot inside and tried to form the biggest polygon that I can make and it was 12 times of the square. The smallest one that I made was 2 times of the square. BUT one of our classmates managed to create a polygon that was only 1½ times of the square!
QUOTE OF THE DAY…
“Mathematics is an excellent vehicle for the development and improvement of a person’s intellectual competencies.”
That’s all for today’s lesson.
