Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
We've started the new year off with a bang!  We've been learning about circumference and mean averages.  In the pictures below, you'll see us wrapping adding machine tape around our heads.  We took the strips and then measured the length of tape (our circumference) to the nearest centimeter.  Then, in our groups, we connected out lengths of paper together and by folding the paper we were able to divide the total length by the amount of people in our group and got the mean average circumference.    
We also calculated the mean average by adding the measurements together and dividing by the number of people in our group using a calculator.  Most groups had a mean average of 54 cm. On Monday, we'll see what the mean average is for the whole class!
We'll be visiting the Kilton Library on Tuesday.  NWEA testing will start again on Friday: rest up and eat up!
