Now for something extra: Game of Hex (not found on the outline or in google classroom)
Introduction Hex is a two-person game with very few rules but a lot to think about. Students have an opportunity to explore different approaches to see if they can find a winning strategy. Mathematicians have been doing so in the over half a century since its invention and this problem gives students a chance to approach it in the same way mathematicians do. Finding a winning strategy is a key part of gametheory a branch of mathematics often used in areas such as Economics.
Take turns filling in hexagons in an 11-by-11 grid to connect your sides of the board. The game itself is not hard to learn and it can be a lot of fun for all ages. And why not give the questions a shot?
Will you print out several copies of the game board and organize a home tournament? Who in your family will become the Hex champion?
If you want to play digitally (either with a friend or against the computer) you can do so here: http://www.lutanho.net/play/hex.html or click on the 2nd image below.

Math Monday... April 13th
Leo the Rabbit is climbing up a flight of 10 steps. Leo can only hop up 1 or 2 steps each time he hops. He never hops down, only up. How many different ways can Leo hop up the flight of 10 steps? Provide evidence to justify your thinking.
**Before you try the angle questions on the math mission, Click right here to watch: How to use a protractor to measure angles instructional video

Math Monday... April 6th
Mission #26 includes review on angles and factors so below you will find songs and games to help you practice and review. Try the Rainbow Tangrams and Math Cards for fun too!
Many parents use ‘flash cards’ as a way of encouraging the learning of math facts. These usually include 2 unhelpful practices – memorization without understanding and time pressure. In our Math Cards activity we have used the structure of cards, which children like, but we have moved the emphasis to number sense and the understanding of multiplication without any time constraints.
- The aim of the activity is to match cards with the same numerical answer, shown through different representations.
- Lay all the cards down on a table and ask children to take turns picking them; pick as many as they find with the same answer (shown through any representation).
For example 9 and 4 can be shown with an area model, sets of objects such as dominoes, and the number sentence. When students match the cards they should explain how they know that the different cards are equivalent. This activity encourages an understanding of multiplication as well as rehearsal of math facts. Click here to watch a short video demonstration.
Math Monday...March 30th
Spend 15-20 min. on REFLEX every day! Some time this week you may want to review pages 11-20 in the math notebook posted under "MacDonald Math", try the attached review games, math mission pages 1-4, and challenge question below!
Watch this short video to review how to add fractions with like demoninators!
This Week's Challenge Questions: (Solutions will be posted on Friday)
- Brianna raised $12 for the food bank last year and she raised 6 times as much money this year. How much money did she raise this year? Brianna raised $72 beacause 12 x 6 = 72
- Emma raised $15 for the PTO and Enora raised $45. How many times as much money did Enora raise as compared to Emma? Enora raised 3 times the amount of money as Emma. 45 / 15 = 3 or 45 = 15 x ?
- John raised $45 for the animal shelter, which was 3 times as much money as Thomas raised. How much money did Thomas raise? Thomas raised $15 because 15 = 45 / 3 or 45 = 3 x ?
Math Monday...March 23rd
Some time this week you may want to review pages 1-10 in the math notebook posted under "MacDonald Math", try the attached review game, math mission pages 1,2, puzzle and challenge question!

This Week's Challenge Question:
A fruit farmer sold 198 kilograms of apples on the first day. On the second day, she sold 24 kilograms more than she sold on the first day. On the third day, she sold 12 kilograms less than she sold on the second day. On the fourth day, she sold 29 kilograms more than on the third day. How many kilograms of apples did the farmer sell all 4 days together?
(I will post a way the problem can be solved at the end of the week so you can compare your work!)
Day#1 = 198 kg
Day #2 = 198 + 24 = 222 kg
Day #3 = 222 - 12 = 210 kg
Day #4 = 210 + 29 = 239 kg
total kg = 198+222+210+239 =
869 total kg of apples sold
