MATH – Division
We need to QUICKLY find out different options for 45 times a number…..using math that we can do easily in our head.
Then we applied some of the options…..starting with 45 x 20 = 900
THEN WE CONTINUE IN THAT WAY……finding a number to multiply by 45…writing the product….subtracting the product from the dividend to see how much closer we are getting to finding a number that we can multiply by 45 to get closer to the product 2340

We continue to practice multiple multiplication strategies in preparation for tomorrow’s test. Students will be required to demonstrate more than one strategy for level 3.
It was a pretty exciting day for us, following live tweets from Hamilton City Council and following reaction to our presentation about the importance of a Living Wage to Hamilton City Council! We used Tweetdeck to view multiple twitter feeds.
We also learned a little bit about how City Council meetings are run and new terms like “quorum”.
Most of all, it was exciting for us to see that we really can make a difference — that we can hold the attention of adults and share important information that might be used to improve the lives of other people! The following Storify includes a link to our presentation, a video of Ancaster Councillor Lloyd Ferguson talking about our involvement in the community and reflections on our efforts, tweeted by several people at the meeting.
