Ending the Madness

Well, it is hard to believe, but March is coming to an end.  We were lucky enough to squeeze in one more presentation.  Mr. Slingsby joined our math class today to tell us how he uses math in his physical education classes.  He talked about how important it is to be able to do mental math when weight lifting.  We also learned how to find our resting heart rate and then we ran in place and found our heart rate after physical activity.  The students had many wonderful questions for Mr. Slingsby and they were sad when he had to get back to work. 

Thank you to the parents who participated in March Math Madness this year!

The Madness Continues!

We enjoyed listening to Dr. Sutera on Tuesday when she joined us for March Math Madness.  Dr. Sutera told us how she determines how much medicine to prescribe to a patient.  We also learned how she uses math to run her business, the medical clinic.  We learned that 1 cc is equal to 1 mL.  We also learned that 5 cc's is equivalent to one teaspoon.  It was fun working through sample problems that Dr. Sutera solves every day.  We are looking forward to another presentation by a parent.   It is amazing all of the ways that a person uses math in his/her every day life.

Math Madness

Our first speaker had our head spinning!  Ok, maybe not our heads, but the wheel was spinning as Mrs. Tylee talked to us about how she uses math when she is making yarn.  We learned what a niddy noddy is and learned about the parts of the wheel such as the "mother of all."  It was interesting to hear the different ways that the yarn is dyed: kool-aid or plants.  We are excited to hear what other parents are doing to use math everyday.

Making a Connection

We have been having fun learning about magnetism and electricity.  This week we learned how to make a simple circuit with a battery, a piece of wire, and a small lightbulb.  Next week we we will learn how to make parallel circuits and switches.  It was very exciting when we got the bulb to light up!

A Season of Giving

The students at Chadron Intermediate School had fun coloring pictures to use as the front and back covers of a puzzle book for the residents at Crestview Care Center.  Each classroom chose two students to help deliver the books to the residents.

Out of this World

We are having fun learning about the Solar System.  The students used Play Dough to make replicas of the planets and then we put them in order from the Sun.  We also watched a Bill Nye the Science Guy video about the planets.  We are focusing on Earth Science during this second quarter.
