### Scribe from May 8th - May 12th

Hello, fellow students. I apologize for taking a long to=ime to post the scribe but i was busy and i was making pictures. Here is the scribe below.

May 8th: We turned in corrections to our Math tests. Also, Mr. Reece gave use five(5) tiles and a sheet of grid paper per person. We were to make shapes using the five tiles. All of the shapes had to touch by one square if not more. The shapes looked like tetris shapes. Here is an example of how and how not to make the shape.
I made 12 shapes by using

I made twelve (12) different shapes. The shapes I made are below.

May 9th: Mr.Reece gave us a sheet. the the title was "Constructing Pentominoes". The sheet is constructed below.

Constructing Pentominoes

Instructions: In your group of 2 or 3 are to construct shapes using a total of 5 tiles. Each of these five tiles must be touching at least one other tile. Once you have constructed a pentominoe you are to record the pentominoe's shape onto your piece of grid paper. You are only to record pentominoes that are unique in nature on your graph paper.

Questions for reflection

1. How many unique pentominoes were you and your partner able to create?

We answered: We were able to create 12 unique pentominoes.

2. Did you think that you would be able to discover more unique pentominoes if you had more time? How much more time would you have liked?

3. When you joined a larger group were you able to discover more unique pentominoes? How many more?

We answered: Yes, when we joined a larger group we found four more.

4. Were some of the pentominoes that you traces on your graph paper simply reflections or translations of pentominoes that you had already traced? What made these pentominoes hard to identify? Draw the perntominoes here.

We answered: yes, they were. They followed the same pattern but the outcome was different.

5. Did you help identify pentominoes in the largergroup that initially looked different but were simply just reflections or translations of pentominoes that you already had found?
