We're still in our 3D Geometry / Measurement unit. We've been studying the different 3D shapes and their attributes, and finding their volume and surface area. In our last unit, 2D Measurement, I had been making shapes with the forumlas for area on them and posting them on the blackboard. I decided to keep them up during this unit (to help them with surface area), and have been adding the 3D shapes they need to know the volume of. These sit at the top of one of my blackboards (yes, I still have blackboards ... well, one blackboard - the others have all been covered because what I need more than anything else in my classroom is more wall space.)
We also have an anchor chart we have been adding to as we study a new shape. The students have also copied this chart into their math notes and are adding to it as we update our anchor chart.
Well, that's about it for today! I'd love to hear if you're using math journals in your classroom, and what you include in your journals. This is the first year I've done these interactive journals, and I'd love some more ideas / advice ...
Happy, Happy Sunday! Looking forward to a GREAT day!
