### Allysa's Scribepost for November 30, 2009

Today we had a quiz in the beginning of class. After the quiz, we continued our foldables in the "SQUARES" section. The first thing we did was we made a number line and labeled the perfect squares and looked for patterns.

Number Line:

On
e pattern we saw was the spaces between the perfect squares, it went up by 2 every time. The spaces were: 3, 5, 7, and 9.

To fill in the spaces, we had to use fractions.

To convert them into a decimal, we just used a calculator.
e.g. 1 divided by 3 = 0.333333333
Then we added the whole number before the decimal.

1, 1.33, 1.66, 2.

For 5 spaces it would be:

1 1/5, 1 2/5, 1 3/5, 1 4/5, 1 5/5

HOMEWORK:
Find the decimals for 5 spaces.

Sorry, I put it up late.
