### April's Scribe Notes

Today in math class, we did another mad minute page in our booklets. It was basically questions about fractions, order of operations, and the B.E.D.M.A.S stuff. Mr. Reece gave about 2-3 minutes to finish.

Anyway, we also continued talking over about perimeter and asked questions such as "how can you find the perimeter of a
shape?". Well... all you need to do is add up all the sides of the shape to get the sum of the measurement.

We needed to know th
at information to help us finish yesterday's homework where we had to make 4 quares of our own that would equal one of the 4 measurements. One of them was 26cm. This is what it would look like:
To do that you would have to get a shape and palce numbers 1 to 9 on each side to make it add up to the given measurements. The numbers hve to be on the opposite side of the shape too.
Height is the vertical side of the rectangle and width is horizontal.

Oh yeah, Mr. Reece handed out some dot sheets where we had to make as many rectangles as a group. The number of line segments were either 20, 24, or 30 and the maximum rectangles were 9,11, and 14. The width and height couldn't be as high or wide as 9 or 1.

That's pretty much it. Hopefully, I covered most of the today's class. But I'm going to let..............
MARK be the next scribe... just cause' he wants to! =)

You have a mistake in your picture april. Not all four sides are equal, yet you've labelled them as such. Otherwise you did a good job with the scribe notes
