A short inquiry investigation today. We are continuing to use our number sense skills to find answers to real life questions.

Today:

How many DAYS / HOUR / MINUTES / SECONDS will you spend at school this year?

How do you know you calculated correctly? Show your steps and explanations.

How much time will you spend working on your favourite or least favourite school subject?

What do you need to know from me?

LKDSB (helpful link for calendar purposes).

Too Easy??

What percent of the school year will you spend working on your favourite subject? You could include lunch or recess on this one.

What percent of this year (Sept. 1 2016 to Aug. 31 2017) will you spend at school??

Thanks to Mr. Cameron’s Class for the idea today:

We could compare our numbers. What might cause some differences? Why do we have such discrepancies in our own calculations??

1st #math investigation complete! We’ll spend 4 733 600 seconds at school. We plan to make every second count! Read- https://t.co/9XKzsE3cz3
