The 6-year old had Fall Break last week, so no homework and no enVisionMATH-blogging for me. Tonight, however, she brought home a new worksheet for her weekly homework, and a couple of things caught my eye. I thought I’d throw those out there to you all, along with a question or two, as a two-part blog post.
For the first post, take a look at this (click to enlarge):
- In your own words, preferably those that a smart 6-year old could understand, what is the basic principle that this page is trying to get across?
- What technique does this worksheet want kids to use when doing the Algebra problems?
- What’s your opinion about the principle/technique you think the worksheet is trying to communciate? Reasonable? Natural? Likely to be useful, or used frequently later on?
