Flerkus! Day 1:
Man, I couldn't have asked for this to go better! I've been looking forward to presenting this problem since I started writing it about a month ago. 5 minutes of absolute silence as the kids read through it... then a few nudges and they started trying to figure things out.
Graph My Room Day 3:
One group's doing this in cm, one in inches. Scale seems to be a big tripping point. Inches group is going by 20 inches per grid line, so have to recalculate all of their coordinates. I foresee trouble in their future. CM group is going by 50 cm, so if they can keep it together, they should be fine. Fun to see different approaches here.
started at a new school this year, and trying this out to keep track of things.
