GET U2 TO THEIR CONCERT ON TIME!
U2 says "It's a Beautiful
Day" for Math!!
U2 has a concert that starts in 17 minutes and the band must all cross
a bridge to get there. All four band members begin on the same side of the
bridge. You must help them to cross to the other side.
night. There is only one flashlight. A maximum of 2 people can cross
at any time. Any party who crosses, either 1 or 2 people must have the
flashlight with them. The flashlight must be walked back and forth.
It cannot be tossed, thrown, etc...
Each band member walks at a different
speed. A pair must walk together at the rate of the slower man's
Bono: 1 minute (to cross bridge)
Edge: 2 minutes
Adam: 5 minutes
Larry: 10 minutes
For example, if Larry and Bono walked
across first, 10 minutes would have elapsed when they got to the other
side. If Larry then returned with the flashlight, a total of 20 minutes
will have passed and you have failed the mission. There is no trick to
this: no swimming, carrying another, etc...
2018/19: Regular homework for the whole year: Students in 6P/6W should be reading each night, and practicing math facts every second night.
** A gentle reminder to parents and students of 6P and 6W: A Math or Science homework assignment should never take longer than 30 minutes! If you are unable to finish in 30 minutes or less please bring it back to school and speak with me. We will work out a strategy for getting it completed together at school.**
All students in 6P/6W are reminded that they should be working on their math facts regularly at home. Here is a link to the program that will be used for most of our math homework
We are focusing on multiplying whole numbers in class so here is a good place for students to start: http://ca.ixl.com/math/grade-6/multiply-whole-numbers
Students can also try different grade levels in the ixl website to best meet their individual needs.
Any students that need assistance with their user name or password are asked to speak to Mr. Peterson.
The Handshake Problem You will need to show/prove to me how many handshakes would occur between 2 people, 3 people, 4, 5, ... 10, and try to use a formula or pattern to determine how many handshakes would occur between 25 people.
