Busy, busy, that was us!

Today we practiced our adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing skills with the opening word problem set.

After that we learned about converting metric measurement:

We discussed and demonstrated that the equal sign means that both sides are the same - the 'sequence' of numbers will always be the same when converting measurement as you are multiplying or dividing by 10, 100, 1000, and so on.

For example: 1234m = 1.234km

The numbers '1, 2, 3, and 4' do not change position, just the place value column when being converted into a different metric unit of measurement.

Next we looked at perimeter of a regular polygon (where all the sides of the shape are the same length). We came up with the formula that:

Perimeter = sum of all sides of a shape

See you all tomorrow,

Today we practiced our adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing skills with the opening word problem set.

After that we learned about converting metric measurement:

- 10mm = 1cm
- 100cm = 1m
- 1000m = 1km

We discussed and demonstrated that the equal sign means that both sides are the same - the 'sequence' of numbers will always be the same when converting measurement as you are multiplying or dividing by 10, 100, 1000, and so on.
