Week of Sept. 19, 2016

In our first math unit we are working on finding volume and surface area.  Students are also becoming more aware of number expressions and equations noticing the relationship various numbers have with one another.

The fifth graders are needing to manage their time between after school activities while still completing their math homework assignments. Their homework is 25% of their grade, so incomplete assignments or missing assignments will bring down their averages quickly.

Below are some pictures of finding surface area of boxes that all have a volume of 24 cubic units. They were surprised to discover that even though the volumes were the same, the surface areas were very different.
