In this class we will learn:
- Units of time
Adding and subtracting time units. When did the journey start if it ended today at 16 32 PM and lasted four days 10 hours, and 45 minutes?
- True or flase statements
How can you prove something to be true? How do you know to disprove something you know is false? Why is this important in Mathematics?
- Equations and equation simplification
What are equations? Where do we find them helpful in everyday life? Why learn them? How do we solve them?
What is a formula? How does it help us solve complicated problems?
- Logic problems
Sharpen your skills in solving problems based on Mathematical logic and reasoning!
I will guide you in answering all the questions above and more in these lessons. The idea of Build Your Own Math is for you to find solutions by discussion and trial and error. I am there to present the problem and help you when you need it. And most importantly, ask the question: Why? Whether you get the answer right or wrong, you must explain how you got there. Then we need to determine if the solution was correct through discussion. Remember, there can always be more than one way to solve things!
