Using calculators, students will gain familiarity with the patterns that occur when multiplying by decimals. They'll note these patterns and use them to make predictions before checking with their calculator.
Students compare and contrast poetry and prose, examining how lines differ from sentences and stanzas differ from paragraphs. They go on to create a script in which Poetry and Prose meet each other and get into a conversation.
Students learn how sentences work together as a system form a paragraph. They'll try to re-order mixed-up paragraphs and then try their hand and writing a mixed-up paragraph that their peers can untangle.
To better understand place value, we venture beyond the decimal number system and explore a Base 9 system. Students will be exposed to ancient Babylon's Base 60 system and computers' Binary and Hexadecimal before creating their own number system!
