Math Focus

This week we are beginning a new unit in Investigations: Data Gathering and Analysis. Sounds a bit serious for grade one, but will actually be loads of fun as we explore meaningful questions, look at different ways to represent our information and understand the usefulness of collecting data.
Today we began with a simple do you like question. The children showed their answer by choosing from two colored cubes, then sorted out the answer. aWe talked about how knowing what they like could help in planning a menu or knowing what to get as a gift.
The term attribute was defined because we use this word to determine sorts or groupings for different purposes. Here are some pictures of the students sorting by different attributes.
