We are going to be working with circumference for Topic 15. So, put your thinking caps on and get ready to LEARN! :)
For your computer math center today, you are going to CLICK HERE and log into Learn Zillion with your account information. Then you will complete the videos that have been assigned about circumference and area of a circle.
Make sure you pay attention. The information in the videos will be EXTREMELY helpful to you on your math test this week.
When you are done, write down an explanation for Pi in your math journal. Need extra help? Go back and watch the video, or do a Google search on "What is Pi?".
What do you already know about ratios? What do ratios tell us?
Ratios are a comparison of two numbers or quantities. They can be written with a fraction bar, the word "to", or even a symbol : (which we call a colon)
Example: If I have 6 blue marbles in a bag and 4 read marbles in a bag, the ratio of blue to red would be written in one of these ways: 6:4, 6 to 4, or 6/4.
Did you know??? 3:2, 3 to 2 and 3/2 would be equivalent ratios to 6:4. How do you know???
This will be helpful information for the math test that we will be taking on Monday. Good luck!!!
