MATHEMATICS — MRS. MICHELLE MARINI~ October 2018

 

In the past, Tashua’s mathematicians found opportunities for math enrichment on the bulletin board across
the main office, but we are going to switch things up a bit. Each month, I will share a math strategy, as well as,
different math enrichment problems on a google form via the Tiger Times. This new format will reduce
the amount of paper used and provide immediate feedback for our mathematicians. I will have access to the
responses and would be happy to meet with any student (or brain-boggled parents) who would like to discuss
solutions and strategies by request. However, I can’t completely part with tradition…students who take on
the math enrichment challenge will continue to receive a state of the art, top of the line, colorful, math pencil!
First, check out the links below with your child to learn more
about the bar model strategy and how it might be used to solve problems.

Next, your student can try out enrichment problems below. There is at least one problem in each grade level band your student can try out the bar model strategy.

Have fun with math!
