Make a note for yourself (paper or digital)


Angle hunting

Let’s reintroduce ourselves to different angles by having a digital scavenger hunt.  Please read the following directives very carefully before you begin.

You will have 10 minutes to organize, plan and understand everything about this task.

Set a timer on your device for ten minutes.

1. You are looking to find and take a picture of the following things:

a) an acute angle b) an obtuse angle 

c) a right angle d) a perpendicular line 

e) a right triangle f) an acute triangle 

g) an obtuse triangle h) a straight angle 

i) a reflexive angle 

2) A few simple rules: you may explore the school, but be reasonable and accessible and non disruptive.  You cannot use items/things/pictures that represent these things already ( ie. You cannot take pictures of math manipulative or textbook pages).  

3) You may work with a partner.

4) 2 points each will be awarded for finding an element, 2 bonus points each for a unique element (meaning no other group found and used the right angle in a brick).

5) You are required to find a way to show that your choices are accurate (explain everything, skitch, showme).  You can Mark up your pictures.

You will have 30 minutes to complete this challenge, please set a timer on your device.


Writing prompt

Here is an assignment that Mr. Harvey would like us to complete as part of education week in early May. Here is the prompt:

How does technology affect your learning at Brooke Central?

Here is a planning framework to help you organize your thinking.

5 paragraphs minimum please.  Your thesis should be the big idea that you would like to get across and your three body paragraphs need to connect to the big idea.  This is your opinion but you can certainly support your ideas with some research.

Mock NHL draft lottery

Here is an idea, can you create a mock draft lottery for the NHL entry draft?

The odds are posted here: 2015 Draft Odds

Are there any other rules that you need to know?

What does the NHL do to hold this lottery? How do they actually draw? What do they draw (materials)?

What will you use to hold a mock lottery? Could you use a computer programming tool? (like Scratch)?

How do you know that your odds and materials are accurate?  Where is your math?? And who is that guy???
