ASA Mathematical Problem Solving

By Ariel Arsac-Ellison

Last week in the Mathematical Problem Solving Activity children learned to draw some 3D shapes, including cubes, tetrahedra, octahedra and cuboctahedra. Then they decided that a cube could be called a hexahedron! Here’s the worksheet, and some of the drawings students made on the white board (see the attached photo).

En classe d’elab-LEGO, Antoine a construit un chien mécanique.

Il a d’abord construit le corps lors de la première période et il vient juste de terminer la tête. Il a pu l’attacher au reste qui comporte un moteur.

Lorsqu’il démarre ce dernier, la bouche, la queue, les yeux et les pattes s’activent.

C’est super !  Bravo Antoine !

For the embroidery projects, they realized diverse assignments such as ornaments, an embroidered heart, cards and other decorations meant to be used for the holidays. Acquired skills: two basic stitches (the running stitch and the blanket stitch).
