Module 1 Letter Hello mom,
I am writing you a letter while I’m in math class to tell you about what we've done so far this year in mathematics class. The classes are colored and my class is red. Every week we have a new math log and each day we put down what our homework is for one week. One thing we did was we had a ripped page from a phone book and we took tally of the last digit of the first 100 phone numbers and put them on a frequency table.

That was in the beginning of the year; one of the more recent things we've done was just a few weeks ago. Me and a friend took a bag of (honey dew) doughnut munchkin things and randomly chose one doughnut out of the bag at a time we then recorded the frequency of a chocolate, glazed and what we call the “eridy” doughnut on a frequency table; which we then put on a plain white piece of paper. We decorated the piece of paper we did this all on, with pretty colors and pictures of donuts.

We also did number tricks which we solved using variables. You must be wondering what a number trick is... here are a few examples: choose a number, add 3, multiply by 2, add 4, divide by 2, subtract original number. Here's another one: Choose a number, add the next larger number, add 7, divide by 2, subtract 4... what are your answers?

Those are some things we have learned in module one this year... we are soon going on to a new module which is module 2. I hope you enjoyed learning a bit about what we learned about in math class this year.

Love,
