Hello, we go to math with Ms. Mefford, and we study perimeter. We measure the sides and add all of the sides to find the perimeter. To find the area, we get square centimeter cubes and line all of them up inside of the shape and then count them. How many cubes you have is the area. We also do arrays, where you can multiply rows times columns, to find the area.
We have been practicing for the STAAR and actually did the 2011 STAAR test. It has some pretty weird questions. That’s basically what we have been doing, but it’s very fun.
