We have been very busy working on our Teddy Bear’s profile. The Teddies were all thoroughly exhausted after being subjected to ordering,  measuring of height and width using formal and informal units and also creating equivalence statements about the weight of our teddy bear. Here are some photo’s of the work we’ve been doing.

 

Today, we each adopted a woolly worm. We needed to measure how long our woolly worms were so we used the inchworms ruler. Students put the tails of the woolly worms on the start of the inchworm ruler and drew a line with a pencil where its head finished. We needed to ensure that the inchworms behaved themselves and remained straight while we measured them. We needed to give our woolly worms a name and record its length in “inchworms”. We got to keep our woolly worms which are actually very easy to take care of. 20140530_124005 20140530_124010 20140530_124024 20140530_124029 20140530_124032 20140530_124039 20140530_124042 20140530_124049 20140530_124111 20140530_124127 20140530_124133 20140530_124148 20140530_124150 20140530_124153 20140530_124229 20140530_124243 20140530_124245 20140530_124300 20140530_124337 20140530_124339 20140530_125330 20140530_125338 20140530_125346 20140530_125353 20140530_125403 20140530_125409 20140530_125418 20140530_125425 20140530_125433 20140530_125444 20140530_125453 20140530_125508 20140530_125514 20140530_125523 20140530_125532 20140530_125542 20140530_125725 20140530_125734 20140530_125754

Some people have discovered the power of doubling numbers. If your numbers get big enough, the zeros start adding up.
This is very important place value knowledge. Do you know what number comes after 999 trillions?
Ones
Thousands (1,000 =10^3)
Millions (1,000,000=10^6)
Billions (1,000,000,000= 10^9)
Trillions  (1, 000, 000, 000, 000 =10^12)

Also: Googolplexian: The worlds largest number with a name. A "1" followed by a googolplex of zeros.

Googolplex: The second largest number with a name. A "1" followed by a googol of zeros. 

Googol: A large number. A "1" followed by one hundred zeros.

 

2D has been learning about place value. We know that when we get to 9,  and we get one more, we need to make a bundle of “10”. Clever Mathematicians do this all the time. We also made “mega bundles” when we arrived at 10 bundles of 10- This is called “one hundred”.

Please ask your child to show you how the bundling system works and how to write numbers according to their hundreds, tens and ones. They should explain it like this: 156 has one of the hundreds, 5 of the tens and 6 of the ones. 1 hundred, 5 tens and 6 ones.

  1. Hi Mr Andrea I was just wondering where the pictures of our teddies (because I would like to see them famous). AND! Also I’ve been having a fun time with them

  2. Hi Mr Andrea,

    I was exploring your blog and I found this maths section. It sounds like a fun activities for year twos! I would just wanted to let you know about my maths goal. I attempted all of those sums you gave me, I checked them on the calculator and they were correct. Even the hardest one!:19×15 I believe.is there anything else you want me to do over the weekend.

    From Ella
