Day 40

Jamie bought 3 books at the school book fair. Two of the books cost $4.50 each. Jamie paid with a twenty-dollar bill and received $3.05 in change. Assuming Jamie did not pay sales tax, how much did the third book cost?

Day 41

Rachel and Sierra were comparing the lids of their jewelry boxes. Rachel and Sierra both argued that only their lid had at least one set of perpendicular diagonals. Sandra was listening to the girls discuss their lids and had them use yarn to make diagonals on them. She noticed both girls had lids that had all sides congruent. With Sandra’s help the girls realized that they both had lids with at least one set of perpendicular diagonals. What are the possible lids the girls may have had on their jewelry boxes?

Day 42

Jarod and Wade were building a castle using blocks. They began discussing the parallel sides on each of their quadrilaterals. Jarod said that he noticed that all of the shapes had 2 sets of parallel sides. Wade told him that he was wrong. Who is correct? Explain why.

Day 43

Brooks and Jackson were constructing quadrilaterals (squares, rhombi, rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoids) on drawing paper and decided to include diagonals in each of their shapes. After they were finished their mom asked them to color the shapes that had diagonals that were all congruent to each other. Which polygons should the boys have colored?

Day 44

Tina measured the angles of a triangle using a protractor and recorded them on her white board. She marked angle A 78°, angle B 32°, and angle C 80°.

How did her partner know immediately that Tina’s measurements could not have been accurate?

Day 45

Is it possible to draw a quadrilateral with at least 3 obtuse angles? Draw an example and a counter-example with angle measures.
