We started off with more analogies and some logical reasoning charts. These were new for the kids, so we'll see how it goes. It's a bit of a precursor to the work they'll do in geometry with truth tables. In any case, it should help with the more difficult logic puzzles that will be coming soon!
This was the brain-straining part! Some finished up "Convenient Zero" lessons from Hands-On-Equations. It can get a bit complicated, but sticking with it brings success! The others moved on to tackle a tough math problem solving Exemplar: Would you rather have 75 cents per day for 15 days or start with a penny which doubles and adds up each day for 15 days? On what day does one choice become better than the other? Tough stuff!
We dug into our Ungifted books to look at character change and create a poem about one of the main characters. With all this work on character, the kids will be experts soon!
We got busy creating the events for our Interactive Timeline of Ungifted. I can't wait to see how the finished product turns out next week. Look for photos of it soon!
HW: Create a Diamonte poem of yourself.
Until next time!
