Fractions Are Our Friends ;-)
Anyway, let's see what's on the menu for today:
- Fresh Baked Fractions; play the easy game and see how you do. If you feel good about it try the medium game. It would be a real good idea to have "Ellie's Math Dictionary" open next to you as you work through this game. The divisability rules you wrote down will help you reduce the fractions and solve the problems.
- Play the Multiples and Factors Game against, mom, dad or the computer. It works like Jeopardy -- have fun! (You remember what prime factors are right? ;-)
- Tic-Tac-Toe; play all the medium level games except for the "cubes" game.
- Math Car Racing; you're going to play the hard level; you're ready for it! This game is a little tricky -- I lost the first time I played it -- read the instructions very carefully. Play until you win!
We'll do some more work on fractions next time. If you get that bad feeling in the pit of your stomach while doing any of these games -- STOP PLAYING; try again later. You can also email me, call me or leave me a message on the blog -- I like hearing from you! And don't worry, before this school year ends you'll be at the top of your class in math! ;-)
