Today's 100th lesson in Saxon math was center stage. There was plenty of sillliness as students entered the classroom through our decorated door. We started the morning with a trail mix recipe. Each student brought 100 food items. We mixed all the "ingredients" together and this bowl of goodies was a fun treat for a morning of munching. Thanks, parents, for contributing.
Our project for the day combined math and art. Students created mosaics. A 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 1-inch paper tiles and the task of creating a mosaic person. They then calculated the ratios and percentages of tiles used to create the mosaic.
