'The Great Divide' by Suzanne Slade continues our multiplication theme. It is important that students see the connections between multiplication and division. This beautifully illustrated book does just that. It also teaches students about the names for different groups of animals such as a group of gorillas is called a band and a bunch of billy goats is a tribe. In a fun and interactive way, it helps students learn about animal collective nouns and division.
Great math ideas using Lego!
why are numbers the shape they are? It is all to do with inside angles - just count them and that tells you the number. You can see now perhaps why the French and others do a 7 the way they do. I've left you to work out 9, the hardest one, on your own.
