Student Created Math Hunt of Area of Irregular Shapes: CCSS 6.G.1

I Speak Math

I racked my brain for at least a week trying to come up with something interesting for this.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.1 Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

I had a few worksheets in my files on finding areas of irregular shapes.  Boring.  I even had a Math Hunt that I created last year (from a similar worksheet.  But, that was pretty dry as well, the only difference is they get to walk around the room.  It’s been a tough week, but these activities just weren’t inspiring me.

My students do love a good math hunt, but they also love being creative.  Also, I didn’t just want them to find areas, I wanted to have them do the higher level skill of finding…

#oracle #gnu/#linux 6 alternative #xfce #webkit #browser

if you are fed up with firefox 17 crashing on your oracle linux 6 xfce desktop and since google have broken chromium on centos 6 and red hat 6 you might like to try the midori webkit based browser instead

howto setup 64-bit #oracle #gnu/#linux 6 to run 32-bit apps such as the #android #sdk

to setup 64-bit oracle gnu/linux 6 to run 32-bit apps such as the android sdk you first need to install some 32 bit librarys

# yum install glibc.i686 glibc-devel.i686 libstdc++.i686 ncurses-libs

this should prevent you getting errors such as

bash: 
android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb: 
/lib/ld-linux.so.2: 
bad ELF interpreter: 
No such file or directory

and

android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb: 
error while loading shared libraries: 
libncurses.so.5: 
cannot open shared object file: 
No such file or directory
