Dr.P's Social Distance Math
Hi Everyone! I
hope you all are staying safe and healthy. I am trying to create
enrichment opportunities for you based on the info you gave in the Math
CheckIn Survey. If you did not get a chance to take the survey,
please take it
now. So, how is this going to work? Each day I would suggest checking out what is listed under "Try It Out." There will always be a Math Minute, and usually another activity. Remember, we are trying to keep up the skills we have already developed this year. Under "A Little Additional Fun" I will post a weekly collection of Logic Puzzles, Coloring Pages, and Math Challenge Problems for those of you looking for something different to do in your free time. I will provide info on the ways math is used every day under "Math in Real Life." I miss being with all of you. We are working out a way for us all to see each other. In the mean time, check out our discussion board topics, participate, and feel free to send an email!  Dr. P
