Number through Algebra

Srong mathematicians find patterns in numbers.
Strong mathematicians make connections from what they know to new learning situations.

Look at our choral count.  We counted back in 1's..
We noticed- 

It was like backwards counting.
Our number got less/smaller by 1 count each time.
It is like taking away 1.
When we looked down the columns we noticed more patterns in numbers.
Looking across the rows there were even more patterns!

Our choral count started at 2 and added 2 each time.
Our number got great/bigger by 2.
We noticed a lot of patterns in the numbers.
Look across the row...the number always ends in 2,4,6,8,0
The next row are all teen numbers.
The following row are numbers in the twenties and the next row are numbers in the thirties?
What do you notice when you look down the columns?
2,12,22,32....what number will be next in the pattern?

What do you think we choral counted in?
What patterns can you see?

How many ways can you make 10?

Look at the patterns we found in numbers when we subtracted/took away to make 10.

What number patterns do you see?

Discovery- making balloon rockets

Discovery is a time for making, creating, problem solving, perservering and working together.  Wow, Hugo and Jacob did all of these things!

Bee Bots

We programme the Bee Bots to move in different directions using forward, backward, left, right, 1/2 and 1/4 turns. They are a lot of fun!

The Ambulance

We had a visit from Amanda and the ambulance.  We learnt what is inside the ambulance, why we have them, how to call one and the importance of knowing home address so we can direct the ambulance to our homes if needed.  We are all learning our full name, address and telephone number to help keep ourselves and others safe.
