Students have studied hard all year in Saxon Math and our recent MAP testing confirms we have grown! I am so proud of these kids. It is time to celebrate, so today's 100th lesson in math was center stage.
My students were all kinds of excited.
Here's a view of our day . . .
Enter the World of MathThere was plenty of sillliness as students started the day with a tunnel walk.Mosaic ArtA mosaic is an art form made with small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. Individual pieces are called tesserae. The pieces fit together to form a design. To celebrate our 100th math lesson, the students were given one hundred 1-inch paper tiles and the task to create a mosaic person.
Fraction PeopleAfter the mosaics were created, students calculated the area and fractions that made their art piece a Math Mosaic.
Each student brought 100 pieces of a snack item. All ingredients spilled in one bowl to make a party mix. It was fun snack for a morning of munching

Thanks, Katie, over at I Want to Be a Super Teacher for sharing this activity on area and fraction math mosaics.
