In our unit, My Art, we had an interesting time trying to decipher who’s who in last week’s ‘Who am I?’ poster project. It was fascinating and challenging to decode some of the signs and symbols the students had chosen to represent aspects of their self concept.
In Maths, we have been inquiring into multiplication. We are now starting to focus our attention on division, which is the inverse of multiplication. Division is useful when we need to share a group or quantity into a number of portions. We can also use it to share a group or quantity into a given size.
