Mrs. Renee Jacobson « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

 

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful summer. I hope you are getting some rest and relaxation.  Remember that math is an everyday activity.  Please figure out the discounts at your favorite store.  Students can figure out the tip to leave when you go out to dinner.  You can increase their allowance by 5% if they help around the house.  Have your children calculate the price per gallon and how much it cost you to take them to their friend’s house for the third time this week.  If you are planning a trip, have your child read the map and figure out the distances to the next stop without using google maps.   Thanks for a great year and have fun with math this summer.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Jacobson
