Today we held our annual Terry fox run to help raise awareness and money for cancer research. Can you believe the Terry Fox Foundation has raised over 750 million dollars for cancer research? After the run we continued our class read-a-loud and in Math we learned an algorithm discovered by a Greek scientist named Eratosthenes that can be used to find prime numbers. After Lunch, we started learning about the INQUIRY PROCESS. (click) We reviewed the different parts to an inquiry. We will be working on learning how the inquiry process works over the next few weeks, before diving into our Social Studies inquiry questions.
- Envelopes/money must be returned by tomorrow.
- YWCA forms
- Immunizations are tomorrow.
1.) READING: Read for 30 minutes and log it in your planner/calendar.
2.) MATH: See PAR
3.) SOCIAL STUDIES/INQUIRY:
- Come up with 5 SELF and 5 WORLD questions (due tomorrow). These should be questions you are genuinely interested in learning about.
- THERE ARE TWO PARTS TO THIS PAR!
- Part 1: In paragraph form, explain how the sieve of Eratosthenes works? Why are only the prime numbers left when you are finished?
- Part 2: Explain why you only need to look at the ones place value to determine if a number is divisible by 2, 5 and 10. Why can you just ignore all other place values except the ones? Try using some examples to help you in your explanation.
- Give someone feedback to help them improve their post
