Biodiversity Hero:Before proceeding with our hero creation, I wanted to make sure the students were caught up with what they needed to do before proceeding:
Sometimes I post things on the class but do not get to them. About a week ago, I posted the story of the late John Glenn, the Astronaut. The narrative was told by National Geographic. We then contrasted this "construction" with another video that explained the contributions of some of the women who were portrayed in the movie Hidden Figures.
Magic Triangles:We watched the video on how these items worked. Again, another old post item. I also wanted to explain to the students how these formulas work using the rules governing the Order of Operations.
While I am certain that this is not in the Grade 6 Curriculum, it will be part of the Grade 7 program in the Number Sense strand.
Okay...let's stay on topic! For our purposes, the Order of Operations will look like this:
I created the Magic Triangles, in relation to the area of a Triangle, on my own. I just worked backward to figure out the steps. Depending on what is easier, you may prefer one way over the other.
