Hello 9-05 ! Sorry, that's this is a late post. So, let's do a recap on yesterday's class. We went to the computer lab and Mr. Backe showed us some sites that we can go to, like http://www.nlvm.usu.edu/ and http://www.lumosity.com/.
First, we went to http://www.nlvm.usu.edu/ and we went on Fraction Adding. Here's an example on what we did on this site.
Here's the instruction :
To find a common denominator, use the up and down arrow buttons located under each whole.
The up arrow button increases the number of parts a whole is divided into. The down arrow key decreases the number of parts.
For this question the denominator is going to be 6 because both 3 and 2 goes into 6.
Here's the second instruction :
Once a common denominator has been identified, type the names of the equivalent fractions into the appropriate boxes. Check your answer by clicking the button. If you have correct names with the same denominator, the next step in addition will appear.
Now the last part of this question is adding this all together.
The second site that we went on is http://www.lumosity.com/.
On this site, we first had to sign up for an account. After we made an account, we went on Problem Solving Game called Raindrops.On this game, we had to solve the equation before is falls down. During the game, we will see a sun. And if you got the question inside the sun right, all the other raindrops will dry up. Then, if you can't an equation, the water well rise. If you missed three raindrops, the game well be over.
