Today we began by discussing the Coloring Fun! (yellow-red-blue patterns) “Burning the candle” problems.
After lunch we made a giant iceberg poster representing how ideas at each of our grade levels build floating capacity for understanding linear relationships such as those in the candle burning problem.
Then we spent some time exploring and sharing resources we found on the NCTM website with our new memberships!
Then we talked more about other kinds of relationships between quantities besides proportional: linear and non-linear alike!
