When you open the fold able the fourth heading in fourth box is fourth box is Multiplying words. Multiplying Words are ; times, of, multiplying, etc.

The last heading in the last box is Words that mean equal. Words that mean equal are ; equal, equal to, is, results in, gives you, makes, etc.

The homework for to night was the first page on our new booklets. We had to do all of letter A 1-10. We had to write an English phrase for the following mathematical phrases. The first question was 3x. The English phrase for 3x is three times a number.

That's what we pretty much did in class, but remember to do your poems! If you need help with your poems read Kyle's scribe post, it can really help you for those who have trouble. Please leave comments, and help me make my scribe post better! Thanks (:
