## Fractions

We are going to be learning about fractions.  G7’s will be learning to add and subtract while G8’s will be learning to multiply and divide. Check out this video to get you thinking about making a stop motion video using Lego and fractions.

## Twine! Writing narratives…

Hey Class,

Hope you all had a wonderful break.  We are going to start exploring some interesting ways to produce narratives.  We are going start using twinery.org.  This will work best if you use a desktop in the lab.  If you are not quite ready to start exploring how twine works, you can simply start drafting your ideas and stories in a Drive file.

## Challenge!

﻿﻿

Can you collaborate and create a scale model of a ski hill using one of our snow hills outside?  Interesting?

I will set some parameters:

You need to have a bunny hill, 3 green hills, 4 blue hills and 2 black hills.  You also need to have at least 3 ski lifts and 2 chalets.  You could add other amenities to your plan if you wish (restaurants, hotel, parking etc.).

But where is the math?!? Fret not, you’ll find it.

Remember that a Green run has a slope gradient that is less than 25%, blue run are 25-40% slope gradient and black runs are greater than 40%.

What does this look like and how can we accurately calculate the slope gradient of our snow hills? (Slope equals rise over run).

What tools do you need? How can I help?

﻿﻿

This is a pretty crude attempt, but you get the idea (I think).

What other questions do you have?

## Iditarod Dog Sled Race

Hey Crew, we are looking at some more winter related math.  The Iditarod is a world famous race and I hope you find something interesting about it.  I don’t expect that you can complete all of this task, but you should be able to complete the first section 1-3 and then one of the next two sections 4-8 or 9-12.  Lots of great opportunities to learn something new!
