Hey, it's not too bad in here! 
By Daija and Eli Point x and y marks the spot!!! Our article is about the x and y coordinates. An orderd pair is just a pair of numbers. The x scale is the horizontal direction. The y scale is the vertical direction. The vertical line runs up and down and the horizontal line goes side to side. The first number you move is horizontal. The second number moves vertical. If we had a bunch of orderd numbers and we had to connect them we would have a line graph. We would have a line graph because if we had to connect them together with dots and lines you would see if it is going vertical or horizontal. Like if you were tracking money and if you made alot it would go up. Here are some resons why we should learn this is because it can give information for keeping track or raising profit. Next, it can help children for going on field trips by colecting money. Next, it can be used for getting new school supplies. 
You can use Billy Bug for a fun XY Coordinate practice!

Multiplying is very fun! Our
story is about How To Multiply. Look at our problem. The
problem is 12 x 12. Here are the steps!

We knew the answer to the problem this before we did this problem. Students should already know the problem 12 x 12 becaues it is a special square. You will use multiplcation when you grow up with your money that you will get when you get a job to know if you buy some stuff from WalMart so no one will rip you offf. Jordan was ripped off at a garage sale.

Let's get ready to divide!!!!! To do division you must know how to multiply. For example will 5 go into 1? no. but will it go into 14? yes. How many times? 2 so you put the 2 above the 4 then you multiply by 5 and that answer is ten. So you put the ten under the 14. Next you subtract and get 4. Then you drop the zero. Will 5 go into 40? Yes it will go into 40 eight times. Then you put the 40 under the other 40 and subtract. And the whole problem's answer is 28. The divisor is the 5 or the number in front of the division line.

I think when I grow up I will use division for lots of things.

Math Patterns by
Allen and Levi
The story is about the math patterns. Last week we studied patterns. For a example there can be letter, numbers or shapes. The pattern I know is abc cab abc cab abc cab abc. Here is one of our patterns we want you to solve. 2 4 8 10 __ __ __ __ __ good luck for solving our pattern.
Square Root by Shelby and Chelsea

We are learning algebra, It is fun! A math variable is a n, x or a shape that stands for an unknown number and it changes because another number changes. We used triangles, sqaures and circles to stand for an unknown number. Mr. Smith said that when we do math problems like that it's called Algebra. A triangle plus a triangle equals 10 so a triangle equals 5. So if triangle times square equals thirty then you take the 5 from the last problem because it's all one big problem and the square is a 6 because 5x6=30 and the answer is thirty. Algebra is really good for your brain because you will use this in your life when your older. 

Pictographs by Glen and Chelsey The bar graph is different because it has bars and the pictograph has pictures. The most important thing to look at on a pictograph is the key because you've got to now what to count by. You have to have a title so you know what it is about. If you have 19 birds and they all equal 2 you would draw 9 and a half pictures.

Combinations by Brant and
Allen
A combination is how many sets of thing you can make of other things. For an example we had a red shirt and green shirt and yellow pants and black pants and white pants. So we could see how many sets we could make. We found 6 combinations you could wear of the shirts and pants. RSWP, RSGP, RSYP, GSWP, GSYP, GSBP.For the cars we found 12 combinations. For the animals we found 30 combinations.
