Locating And Predicting Faces

Today for maths I learnt about how many faces are on a shape. I estimated that the top shape would have 6 triangle faces and 1 hexagon face, also I estimated that the bottom shape would have 4 faces. I was right both times. I also learnt that it is not about the faces you can see because there can be some faces that you can't see.

What is a glossary?

A glossary is like the books dictionary. It has words that are in the book with who they are or what the word means.

Today at the library for library skills we found out lots of things about Dewey decimals.

Part Adder

Today Shannon and I worked a two digit plus another two digit number using part adder.  We figured out that both of the strategies make 97.
The first strategy is compensating because we added a number and then took away that number.

The second strategy is doubling because we added 30 and another 30.
