Celebrating the New Year in Math Class

Celebrating the New Year in Math Class

Fifth graders returned to school after Winter Break, celebrating 2024!  

In math class, students worked in small groups to put together a puzzle with eight pieces that could lay across a grid horizontally or vertically. Students practiced collaboration, communication, and logic to put together pieces to successfully create the digits 2024. 

Another fun challenge fifth graders participated in was the 2024 Challenge. Students used all four digits 2,0,2 and 4 in different combinations to create all the numbers 1 through 40. Students extended their math thinking and used some helpful math values such as square roots, exponents, fractions, decimals, and even factorials to create all the numbers from 1 to 40. Way to go fifth graders!
