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 Check-In 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."  This week the math is related to Covid-19; that will not always be the case.

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
