It's visual and fun to say and it really seemed to stick in the minds of the kiddos. Here's how it works: Starting at the bottom, draw a line from the 4 to the 24 (4 goes into 24 six times). Draw the line to the 3 (six times three is 18). Draw the top line and write the answer. Presto!

#### Today is Thursday, so my post should be an iPad app suggestion, and I have a great one for you, but I had something cool come up in class today and decided to share it with you. Stop by tomorrow for this week’s app suggestion. Now, on to my eye opening math lesson. Last week, on my kids math assessment, there was a problem that asked the kids to divide $5 between 6 kids. All of my kids got stuck on this problem, so I decided to take the opportunity to use this to review long division. Now, bear in mind that my math program doesn’t actually teach long division, instead it teaches students to use multiplication to solve division problems. However, many of my students have been taught to divide in previous years at other schools. All of my students are new to this school and this math program, and as they are coming to me in 3rd or 4th grade, they already have a base built in their previous programs. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), they don’t all come from the same previous programs. Out of a class of 7 (Yes, I’m the luckiest teacher in the world and I only have 7 kids!), 2 have “American International School” backgrounds, 1 has a “British International School” background, 2 have “Moroccan Private School” backgrounds and 2 have “Spanish Private School” backgrounds. Because of all of this diversity, I always try to tell my kids that there are many ways to solve a problem and you should choose the way that makes the most sense to you. Last night I assigned a few math division problems to help them review. While we were reviewing them in class today, one of my students taught me a new way to divide. Here’s what her paper looked like: It totally blew my mind at first, and I actually had to go to my husband (who grew up in the Moroccan Private School system) to actually explain it to me. Once he did, I was able to see the connections between the now 3 different ways we have used to solve a long division problem. So, I decided to make a poster for my kids to help them see the similarities and to guide them through choosing the strategy that works best for them. I’m going to make similar posters for the other operations, as I work out all the different ways to solve those problems too. Right now, I only have division finished, but if you’d like a copy of the poster, feel free to grab a free copy from Google Docs. Now, my curious mind is wondering – how do you divide? Which of these methods is your preferred method? Do you have another? I’d love to hear about! Please leave me a comment!

#### Unit 4- graphing functions

#### Linear functions

#### It's been awhile and I'm so far behind in my blogging. So here we go... Before winter break we talked about functions. For many of my students this year is the first time they have seen anything Algebra so we keep it pretty simple. I started off talking about a Function Machine, I like to use a pop machine as my class example. We talk about how if we push the Pepsi button we should get a Pepsi out, but if we push the Pepsi button and a Mt. Dew pops out then our machine doesn't function properly. I went into how for every input you have exactly one output. Many of them understood after the pop machine example. I gave students this chart to put in their ISN. The top box was Graphing Functions From a Table. I taught them how to create an XY table and how the values create points that we put onto a graph. Then we found a few extra points that were on the line but not in our table. We then moved onto Graphing a Function. I gave them y = 2x - 1 and we decided we would use the values -1, 0, 1, and 2 for X. The students plugged the values into the equation and solved for Y. Then graphed the points. I again made them find some extra points that were on the line but not in our graph. Doing the extra points helped my students see that the line does not stop just because we ran out of points to graph. We then moved on to their practice. We defined the terms Domain and Range, each one getting their own color. After we defined them we went back to the left side of our notebook and highlighted which values represented the Domain, and which represented the Range. I then gave them two functions which they had to give values for x and plug them in to find the y. After they were done they had to graph their points and then find a few that were not in their chart. Again they lighted the Domain and Range Values. As an activity I asked my students to create their own function machine. It gave them time to be creative, though this class is not at all creative so many of them just drew boxes as their machines. They were asked to create an equation, but not draw it on their page. They had to create the XY Table, filling in both sets of values. The students then went around and had to figure out what everyones equation was.
