Math Journeys 2011 – Day 12

Students continued to work on understanding fractions on a number line during the morning math time. After lunch, two software engineers who have traveled the world doing engineering work talked to our students about how working hard in school and being good problem solvers has helped them be successful in their career and life. Students also participated in our first official Math Journeys Carnival. All of the games that they created earlier this summer were out on display for all to play. To end the day, we had our final lesson study (Playing with Parachutes) where students were asked to build a parachute that has the slowest timed descent.
