Down to business on a Monday

Today in class we talked about the weekend homework. Congratulations on getting it done.

Your homework today is KRYPTO a game that makes you use 5 numbers to create a 6th number. Check out the slide that has todays KRYPTO numbers so that you can complete your homework.

You need to complete 3 triangles to create the sums of 19, 21 and 23.

Finally you have to find What shoe size would you say was in the middle? Make sure you EXPLAIN why you chose your answer.

If you wish you can leave a comment behind explaining how and why you arrived at your answers.

The slideshare link is not working properly for me. Click the picture to see the notes from today's classes.

on the triangle homework, once i found one of them, i was able to find all of them in one try because there was a pattern i noticed. and on the foot size, I think that the middle number for boys was 9 because I arrange them from least to greatest then cross out one on each side until I had one number left, or two.

once you work out the pattern for the triangle the rest is super easy and for the shoe size just write all the sizes then look in the middle and you will see the middle number

once you find all corners of the triangle it gets easier for them. on the shoe size its just like finding a median (middle) number. you arrange the order. cross out both sides until there is one or two left . if two , add them up and divide it by 2.

getting 19, 21, and 23 got easier. ;)

I don't know if I did the Shoe Size question right. I figured middle meant Average, so I did the avg of the Boys, Girls, then the class. Hope i'm right?
