## Grade 7 Fraction Festivities

Mrs. Charles had her Grade 7 class solving some fraction puzzles

AND getting creative in the culinary arts at the same time.

Students were given a cue card like the one above and had to

then take the correct amount of cupcakes based on their allotted fraction.

They then had to follow the fraction amount to properly decorate the cupcakes

with the right amount of cupcakes iced a particular colour for their cupcake creation.

Mrs. Charles really turned a normally frightening math concept

into a fun and festive classroom activity, all for ECG’s Halloween fun night.

(Do they even know that they were technically multiplying fractions???)

Also seen at ECG: a fun math mystery book on display.

## OMSK Math Night

OMSK had a spooky math night on Monday night.

Students were given a sticker book to collect stickers

as they visited each math station.

One station had students trying out some computer math games

at the Primary level. (Most of these sites can be found as links

on the side of this blog—except DreamBox Learning, which is

a paid subscription website from Pearson Education.)

Mrs. DeMille assists a batty girl with a maze quest.

Another station had addition and subtraction bowling.

Students had to knock down pins and either add or subtract

the numbers on the pins knocked down.

The gym had a lot of activities, with a coffin full of goodies

in the centre of the gym.

The ghoulish mini-putt had some spooky clubs for students to use.

(Not to mention the scary redneck handing out the clubs.)

A Junior station gave students a puzzling cube construction

with manipulatives to reconstruct the cube.

Measurement was explored by using a measuring tape

to take measurements of a vampire and a witch.

Creepy Cup Bounce had students bouncing a ping pong ball

into numbered cups and adding up their total.

Math hangman (skeleton man) was played,

using math vocabulary such as “mean” and “subitizing”.

(Bonus points to Mrs. Martin Abel for using her new vocab

from First Steps in Mathematics training that day.)

SMARTboard problem solving was also on display.
