Coding in Math

Our fourth graders have been learning about measuring angles, and they have been working on several projects to demonstrate their learning. This week we are exploring the coding program Hopscotch and using knowledge about angle measurements to write code to create various shapes. It’s been a great learning experience for both the students and their teacher!

Multiplication, Volume, and Angles, oh my!

We’ve hit the ground running in our math classes after winter break. Our fourth graders are building upon their multiplication skills and area concepts and are now learning 2×2 digit multiplication from both the algorithmic and conceptual perspective. Our students will apply this learning to more complex area and perimeter problems as well as with problem solving skills.

In our fifth grade classes, Mrs. Reed’s class is applying their area, perimeter, and multiplication skills toward their understanding of surface area and volume. Instruction includes a lot of hands-on learning to best understand the concepts and will include a box measuring project next week. Fifth graders, Remember to bring your boxes by Friday!

In Mrs. Reohr’s class, her students will be participating in hands-on learning and the protractors will be out in full force as her students work with measuring angles and triangles.
