Finding Pi Pi = or 22/ The symbol for Pi looks like this The idea of Pi is that the circumference of a circle is approximately 3.14 times the diameter. The formula for circumference is distance (d) circumference (C).

Try some Pi for yourself!
MATERIALS: Yarn or String Ruler Calculator (optional) Circular objects Paper and pencil Wrap a string or yarn around a circular object. Using a ruler measure the amount of string Record this amount. This is the Circumference Next measure the diameter of the circle. Multiply this number by 3.14 or π. It should be the same amount as what you recorded for the circumference of the object

Manipulating Math with M&M’s Math Topics Reviewed in these Lessons
Organizing Data with Charts and Tables Converting Fractions, Decimals, and Percents Finding the Mean and Median Determining Probability Finding Percentages Graphing Data Creating a Bar Graph and a Pie Graph

Manipulating Math with M&M’s Organizing Data with Charts
YOUR BAG CLASSROOM COLOR # FRAC DEC % Blue Brown Green Orange Red Yellow Total

Manipulating Math with M & M’s
Finding the Mean (Average) and Median What is the average (mean) number of orange M&M’s in this size bag? What is the average number of blue M&M’s in this size bag? What is average number of yellow M&M’s? What is that average number of brown M&M’s? What is the average number of red M&M’s in the bag?

Manipulating Math with M & M’s Probability
6. If you put all of the M&M’s in a cup and mixed them up what is the probability that you would pick a red M&M? 7. If you put all of the M&M’s in a cup and mixed them up what is the probability that you would pick a blue M&M? 8. Under the same circumstances what is the probability that you would pick a green M&M? What is the probability you would choose a purple M&M?

Manipulating Math with M & M’s
Finding Percentages and Median 10. Using the percentage of red from the Classroom Color chart what number of red M&M’s would you expect to find in a bag of 300 M&M’s? 11. Using the percentage of green from the Classroom Color chart what number of green M&M’s would you expect to find in a bag of 300 M&M’s? Using the percentage of blue from the Classroom Color chart what number of blue M&M’s would you expect to find in a bag of 300 M&M’s? 13. What is the median number of M&M’s in a ‘fun size’ bag?

Manipulating Math with M&M’s
Use the information from YOUR BAG on the M&M’s Color Chart. Put the information into the bar graph in color. 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Blue Brown Green Orange Red Yellow M&M Colors Bar Graph

Manipulating Math with M&M’s
Pie Charts STEP 1: Cut out colored bars and tape end to end into bracelet. STEP 2: Place the bracelet on paper and trace the circle. Use the colors to determine the size of each piece of pie.

Thinking Inside the Box to Solve Percents
All percent problems have four parts: PART % WHOLE 100 1.The Part 2.The Percent 3.The Whole 4. 100

How to Solve for the Part What is 70% of 150?
Place the known numbers in the BOX Use an X for the unknown number Multiply the numbers that are diagonally opposite from each other. Divide the answer by the number that wasn’t used. X 70 150 100 150 X 70 =10,500 10,500 / 100 =105 X = 105

Solving for the % 15 is what percent of 30?
x 30 100 15 x 100=1,500 1,500 / 30 = 50 X= 50%

Proportions Set up a proportion box: 125 X 12 = 1500 1500 / 5 =300
MILES TRAVELED GALLONS OF GAS LAST’S WEEK’S TRIP 125 5 NEXT TRIP X 12 Set up a proportion box: 125 X 12 = 1500 1500 / 5 =300 X =300 125 5 300 12 125 5 x 12 125 is to 300 as 5 is to 12

Pythagorean Theorem c² = a² + b² c² = 4² + 3² c² = 16 +9 c² = 25
Square root of 25 = 5 C = 5 Plug the numbers in and SOLVE!

Demystify Algebra Immediately
If your student says one of these statements: I can’t do Algebra I don’t understand Algebra I don’t understand why there are letters and number Show them a simple algebra problem and demystify it. “You can do algebra you just don’t realize it.” _ + 5 = 12 …”what is it?” “Yes = 12” “In algebra we use a letter instead of a blank!” x + 5 = 12

Algebra Tiles Using Algebra Tiles to Teach Negative and Positive Computation

Addition and Subtraction of Negative and Positive Numbers
This activity helps students to understand the concept of subtracting a negative number and changing both of the – signs to + signs. Make cards with positive numbers from on one side and negative numbers on the back. Also make a card with - on one side and + on the back. FLIP these cards -6 + (+5) = -1 Also written -6+5= -1 You will now move five places in the positive direction. -6 - -5 + +5

PIG DICE GAME Practice Addition Skills Practice Multiplication Skills
Each player takes turns rolling dice. If you roll a double you loss your turn. If you roll a snake eyes (2 ones) you loss your entire bank. Add the two dice for points and total results First one to 100 wins! Practice Multiplication Skills Use two sets of dice one set will represent one of the numbers to be multiplied Multiply the total of first two dice times the total of the other set of dice. If you roll a double you loss your turn. If you roll a snake eyes (2 ones) you loss your entire bank. First player to 500 wins!
