Math Letter Hi Momma and Daddy,

In Math class we have been working on Module 1. If you're wondering what a module is I'll explain. A module is the way our textbook is divided in our book there are modules in all. This Friday we just finished up Module 1. You might be wondering what did we learn in Module 1, well I'll explain....

In the first section of module 1 we learned about analyzing graphs. By analyzing a graph we can tell what intervals are represented on the vertical axis and the horizontal axis. Also by using our data we can decide whether to make a line graph or a bar graph. We also learned about tallying for graphs as well.

In the second section of module 1 we learned about sequences and beginning algebra. We learned how to predict patterns by finding relationships between the term number and term. We also learned how to draw pictures to help and represent the different sequences. We also reviewed how to find the volume of a cube by using height times width times length.

In section 3 of module 1 about probability. In this unit we did a project. I choose to work with Lily as you know we chose gumballs out of a bag and then recorded the experimental probability. We learned how to reduce experimental probability as well as theoretical probability.

Before we went to section 4 we went to section 6. In section 6 we evaluated problems with order of operations. We were reminded of PEMDAS. Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication or division, addition or subtraction. Then we learned about writing algebra problems.

Right now we are learning about problem solving. What we are trying to learn is to solve and problem and show all your work. Sometimes it's better to show your work then necessarily getting the right answer. It may be difficult but it is really fun once you get the hang of it.

Love,
CJBR
