A little adding, a little subtracting and a little Algebra!

So, this week we quickly reviewed the idea of adding and subtracting!
Our class had a nice talk about estimating sums and we’ll discuss estimating differences tomorrow!

One area that a few of us found a bit foreign was the idea of using a variable in our problems! Most of us are use to seeing a BOX, a CIRCLE or even a DASH in the place a number should be but a LETTER? Yikes! That through a few of us off! We’ll be having some fun with VARIABLES on Thursday!

    Great way to communicate and reinforce a home/school connection. I asked Ryan about the math that very morning. He gave me a really funny look but knew what I was talking about.
