### HOW DO YOU COUNT?

Are you still using your fingers? Do you put your hands under the table so no one can see?

Many kids are still doing this. Please take a look at the touch math picture below and try to start using this instead of your fingers. I think with a little practice you will do great and you will see improvement in your grades as well as your confidence.

Just a little funny to brighten your day. Peppermint Patty uses touch math!

HOMEWORK = 14-25

### PERCENT PROBLEMS - RE-DO

So I decided we needed to have a little more teaching on Percent Problems and using the formula. Students in class practiced the 3 F's. Formula, Fill-In, and Final Answer.

The following pictures are examples that were completed in class. I found a super fabulous app called
Air Sketch that works with Google Chrome and allows me to write on my iPad (from anywhere in the room) and it project on the Smart Board.
