Computer Day

Wednesday is normally our computer lab day, however, we needed to switch with another teacher, so we went today.

  We began with changing improper fractions to mixed numbers and then mixed numbers to improper fractions on mathplayground.com.  These are both interactive sites that allow students to practice their new skills.  Please feel free to have your child do these at home!

If there was any remaining time,  then the classes worked on khanacademy.org.  

We have a khanacademy.org competition going.  The benchmarks of the competition are:

  • 30 mastered skills - join the club
  • 40 members
  • 45 mastered skills - Khan t-shirt
19 t-shirts
  • 60 mastered skills - Invitation to Khan Banquet
6 invitations
  • 75 mastered skills - sit at the head table
3 @ the head table
  • 90 mastered skills - medals awarded
1 medalist
  • HIGHEST Khan mastered skills - "TOP Khan" award
