March 9 scribe (Renz)

Today we talked about perfect squares and charts which in this case is the multiplication table chart.

So Harbeck was talking about the multiplication charts and squares and stuff and then harbeck made us write down and finish a multiplication chart like so: Yeah so it's not pretty but this was what we had to copy down for the chart.

Then we talked about some multiplication stuff and then we wrote down some multiplication questions like 1 squared then Harberck made us write it till 30 squared then we had to write it out 1 to 30 in standard form (eg., 2x2). so then this is what it looked like.

Okay so this was the sheet that we had to make with the multplication and the exponents and then we had to figure out the answers then we had to look at it and look for a pattern and from what i see i think that the pattern is that it is always being added with a odd number to make the second number(eg. 30x30= 900 or in the pattern it would be like 59+841=900).
Then after we did those things and finished them, then Harbeck gave us our homework.
We had three homework for the day:
1.we had to colour our grid with different colour by row.
2.then make a rule about the chart and the patterns.
3. Then finish the times table with all the numbers placed in order for the multiplication chart.
So then this is what we talked about and worked on for this class.
