Computer Lab

We were in the computer lab for our math class today. We took a quick look at the factor game, and tried to develop strategies to 'beat' the computer at the game! Be thinking about your strategies, because tomorrow you will have a chance to challenge a human opponent.

Clean out the 'daily work and notes' section of your binder. Please place all of that work in a folder and keep it at home. We may need to take a second look at some of those papers later in the year, so please don't lose them.
