What I Have Learned This Week in Math
Hi!! Welcome to my blog. I hope you like my post! On Monday we learned about perimeter and circumference. Perimeter refers to the distance around a shape. Circumference is used with circles. It also refers to the distance around a circle. We used Pi, a constant that equals 3.14 when finding the circumference of a circle. I think that I can teach this to someone else.
On Tuesday we learned In this lesson, you will be calculating the area of parallelograms, rectangles, and squares. The area refers to all of the space inside of a shape. We calculated the space inside. This is a real life skill, When you need to determine how much carpeting to purchase for your bedroom, you need to find the area. Or, if you want to paint your bedroom walls, or cover them with wall paper, you need to find the area. By measuring the length and the width, or the base and the height, then multiplying these numbers together, you can find the area. I think that I can teach this to someone else.
On Wednesday we learned area of triangles and trapezoids. A trapezoid is a little different, because there are two bases, or two horizontal sides with a trapezoid, you will add the two bases together, then multiply by height and either multiply by 1/2 or divide by 2. I think that I can teach this to someone else.
On Thursday we learned……….. well I don’t know because I was at home sick So that is why I don’t know what we did.I don’ think I can teach this to someone else because I don’t know how to do it.
On Friday our regular teacher was not here so we did review of what we did earlier in the week. We did Perimeter and area but we are not doing what I don’t know how to do, so I am happy.
Well that is everything on what we learned this week. I hope have a wonderful day. Oh I forgot I wish everyone a HAPPY HAPPY EASTER!!!! Bye!!!
