G/T Mathematics
G/T Mathematics is daily mathematics instruction for identified 4th and 5th graders provided by a G/T Resource Teacher. Our curriculum is enriched & accelerated and focuses on problem solving and application of mathematical skills. Testing is required for student participation and nominations can be parent or teacher initiated.
Problem of the MonthNEW PROBLEMS ARE HERE!!!! Problems of the month are not mandatory but can be used as an opportunity for extra credit.
Use the form to the right. Download it and show all your work on this paper. Hand it in to your math teacher by the due date (see below and on the form). This will be worth .5 extra credit point in problem solving for 4th grade and 1 extra credit point in problem solving for 5th grade. POM due dates for the year 20172018 are as follows: October 27, 2017 November 27, 2017 December 22, 2017 January 26, 2018 February 23, 2018 March 27, 2018 April 27, 2018 May 25, 2018

Student Mathematics Activities Resource Tools (S.M.A.R.T.) The Student Mathematics Activity Resource Tools (SMART Web Pages) give students access to the same webbased activities and virtual manipulatives (or mathematics concept tutorials) as those modeled or used by their mathematics teachers. These resources are organized by grade level, marking period, and unit. Teachers are encouraged to use various SMART resources/tools with students during mathematics instruction. Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to access these websites at home or in the public library. SMART resources/tools are currently available for the grade levels and/or courses listed below.

The Rube Goldberg Challenge
Learn about Rube Goldberg (18831970) who was a Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, sculptor and author and is the inspiration for an upcoming generation of mathematicians and engineers. http://www.rubegoldberg.com
Sense and Dollars
Do your students know how long it'll take to earn enough money for a new CD player? Or how credit card charges work? Sense and Dollars is a fun, interactive site that helps your students and their families demystify personal economics. They can even plan a dream prom!
Maths Challenge! A website dedicated to the puzzling world of mathematics. For our math students I would recommend the two star puzzles and possibly some of the three stars.
BrainPop: Fun Math (and other subjects) movies.
Here's a website that has funny movies on almost any math concept you can think of. We will use many in class. They are nice refreshers for a concept.
Funbrain: Sudoku
Use your logical reasoning Sudoku style. Have fun while you manipulate digits. There are two levels to choose from.
